The NBA trade deadline is just around the corner, and it looks like Anthony Davis wants to be in a new team before that date arrives. The Pelicans superstar asked for a trade from the team. NBA analysts are expecting many teams to submit their offers in the next couple of days.
While most people are looking forward to the upcoming Super Bowl, NBA fans are anticipating which team Davis will be playing for the rest of the season. Most sports betting software experts think that the LA Lakers will add him to their roster.
Although the Celtics have been pursuing the player for a long time, they can’t trade for him as long as they have Kyrie Irving in their roster. Both Davis and Irving signed Rose Rule extensions. As a result, they can’t be on the same roster at the same time.
Where Will Anthony Davis Go?
The Los Angeles Lakers is the most logical choice for Anthony Davis. The team has a great amount of young talented players who can complement Davis’ playing style. In addition, Rich Paul represents Davis and LeBron.
According to the sports news grapevine, the Lakers can offer Kyle Kuzma, Lonzo Ball, Ivica Zubac, and a first round pick for Davis. However, the Pelicans are not in the position to dictate offers. As a result, the Lakers are most likely to keep Kuzma. Instead, the Lakers might consider giving up Brandon Ingram and Caldwell-Pope.
There are talks that the Knicks might also try to get Davis. The best bookie pay per head predicts that they might give Kristaps Porzingis for the Pelican big man. With Davis on board, the team hopes that they can lure big-name free agents in the summer, including Kevin Durant, Kemba Walker, or Kyrie Irving.
At present, the Pelicans are not making any moves to trade him. Only time can tell where Anthony Davis will be playing for the rest of the season.
