Lakers Pessimistic About Getting Anthony Davis Trade Done

Kyle Kuzma and Le Bron James

The Lakers have reportedly already made an offer to the Pelicans, but were basically laughed off the phone without a counteroffer.

Yesterday, ESPN reported that the Pelicans were seeking an offer that would overwhelm them with future Draft picks.

The Boston Celtics aren't on the list, but they are ineligible to trade for Davis prior to the deadline.

For his part, Davis has said he intends to play for the Pelicans as long as he remains on the roster, but that the team has "every right" to hold him out. The Celtics also believe that a deal for Davis will help solidify his confidence in re-signing with the organization, sources said.

It's basically Danny Ainge's worst nightmare. And until any of the other teams on Davis' list submit a trade offer, that will remain unclear.

"They wanted more and more and more", the Times quoted a source as saying.

Meanwhile, New Orleans has not expressed any interest in trading him before the February 7 trade deadline. Gentry was then asked whether he is authorized to make the decision as to when Davis will play. The league's landscape is certainly feeling the tremors of the campaign by Paul and Davis.

The Celtics could have as many as four first-round draft picks in June, and are guaranteed to have two - their own, and the one belonging to the Sacramento Kings. Lakers offered Ball, Kuzma, BI, KCP, Hart, Zubac, 2 first round picks, and take Solomon Hill back for cap relief.

But what a post for Davis to accidentally like - that's not awkward at all.

What's more, there's a small possibility that the Knicks could win the draft lottery and become viable candidates for a trade.

"The Pelicans aren't countering their offers yet", he said.

For now, anyway, the Lakers pursuit has several factors working against it.

Having teammates involved in trade rumors leading up to the annual deadline is nothing new for James, who has seen a plethora of players come and go on deadline day over the years. National Basketball Association salary cap rules prevent the Celtics from acquiring Davis until July 1, when Kyrie Irving is eligible to become a free agent. Harkless has another year on his contract, at $11.5 million, which would scare off teams looking to protect cap space next summer.
