It seems like the Anthony Davis era in New Orleans has come to a close. On Tuesday, The Athletic's Shams Charania disclosed that the Pelicans' Executive Vice President David Griffin has started to answer calls from franchises looking to acquire AD.
"As teams continue placing calls on Anthony Davis, Pelicans and executive VP David Griffin have begun listening to teams," Charania tweeted.
According to Charania, the Lakers, Knicks, Celtics, and Nets will be able to assemble the best trade packages, while the Lakers, Knicks, and Clippers are Davis' preferred destinations.
If Charania's sources are correct then this is exciting news for the Los Angeles Lakers. Since Davis first requested a trade, the Lakers have been expressed an intense desire to add AD to their roster. It was even rumored that LA's front office pitched the idea of shipping their entire young core to New Orleans for Davis. This not only created friction in the locker room but possibly cost former Pelicans GM Dell Demps his job because he didn't take the deal. But with both teams getting lucky during the lottery, Los Angeles could potentially add pieces to the deal that will surround Zion Williamson with talent and save some of LA's key players. Also, the addition of Davis will sooth reports that LeBron James is looking to leave the Lakers if they "whiff" on signing/trading for a big name this offseason.
