Anthony Davis Trade Rumors: Pelicans Refuse To Deal With Lakers

Now, according to Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated, there's "no way" that the Pelicans will trade Davis to the Lakers.

"I've been told there's no way Anthony Davis is coming here through the Pelicans", Spears said Wednesday on ESPN's The Jump.

The Pelicans and Lakers each accused the other team of leaking information during their trade negotiations before the deadline, with Magic Johnson adding that the Pelicans of not negotiating in good faith.

If LeBron James is going to get help with the Lakers, it won't come from the Pelicans.

It is widely assumed the Pelicans want Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and all of the Celtics' draft picks in exchange for Davis. He is eligible for free agency in July 2020. AD, of course, has the same agent as James. Reports suggest he prefers signing in Los Angeles when that time comes - both Spears and Wilbon didn't rule this out, simply noting Davis wouldn't go to L.A. through New Orleans - so the Celtics' risk of dumping all their assets for one year of Davis still is very real.

At All-Star media day, Davis said there isn't a list of teams he wants to play for. New Orleans fired general manager Dell Demps after the trade deadline but even with his departure, the team is remaining consistent with who they want to negotiate with.
