Pelicans open to multiteam Davis deal

Celtics quiet as Pelicans set the bar for Anthony Davis trade

According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, league sources claim Davis has narrowed his long-term choices down to two teams: the New York Knicks and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Pelicans executive VP of basketball operations David Griffin is seeking the best return for Anthony Davis. The Pelicans have the first pick in the draft and are nearly certainly going to draft Zion Williamson first overall. Griffin is reportedly asking for one all-star player, one young player with all-star potential and two draft picks in exchange for Davis. The Pelicans could also consider a three-team trade.

They would take on the one-year contract of Solomon Hill to sweeten the offer and might even ask the Lakers for another pick.

Griffin, who was hired in mid-April, believes the team may be able to convince Davis to re-evaluate his decision not to ink an extension.

At this point, it seems clear that between their young players and various first-round picks, the Celtics can offer the Pelicans the best package for Davis.

Each team that's actively pursuing a deal for Davis would have a hard time meeting New Orleans' requirements without getting another team involved in a trade. Griffin, Davis and Davis' agent, Rich Paul, met in Los Angeles on May 29 and Davis' trade stance has remained unchanged.

And instead of giving you a spread out article with all of these different possibilities, we chose to present you with the one three-team trade that we think could get the job done and get Davis to Los Angeles. But the way that both of these reports are worded, it does appear that the Pelicans prefer to get a deal done quickly.

Griffin met with Davis in Los Angeles at the end of May, having what was a reportedly "respectful" and "productive" conversation about his future in New Orleans.

Similar to the Knicks, the Clippers are dreaming big, but would only pull the trigger if they were sure things would go their way. In other words, the Knicks will have to find a third team to flip their draft picks to meet New Orleans' preference of a current All-Star and a future All-Star. In New York, he could become the face of a franchise that could also add stars like Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving this summer via free agency.

No team wants to play a team with Anthony Davis on it four times a season.
