New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis and agent Rich Paul made it known that Davis would like to be traded, with the Lakers being his preferred destination. The Pelicans would like to stretch things out to the summer, when the Boston Celtics can enter the fray.

LeBron James #23 of the Los Angeles Lakers reacts in front of Anthony Davis #23 of the New Orleans Pelicans after a 112-104 Laker win at Staples Center on December 21, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. To New Orleans, that means four first-round and second-round picks as part of a trade package, league sources told ESPN.

"They wanted more and more and more", a source told the LA Times.

"I haven't been through anything like this", Gentry said of Davis' trade demand.

That's a fact. You're going to have to give up a fortune to get Davis, and that's not worth doing unless you get him for the next several years. The Athletic's Shams Charania reported Ball would want to be moved to a third team that "doesn't have an established point guard" if he were to be included in a potential Davis deal. Is he glad the Lakers are no longer making offers for him ahead of the trade deadline?

As for picks, the Celtics have their own, the Sacramento Kings' first-round selection, the Los Angeles Clippers' first-round pick, and a very intriguing future first-round pick from the Memphis Grizzlies.

This gives another big market team like the Lakers a chance of strong-arming the Pelicans into a awful trade that only benefits one team. There's a real possibility that the Pelicans and Davis could agree on a limited playing schedule post-trade deadline, but that's undetermined.

According to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, the Lakers have felt conversations with New Orleans have been one-sided and they are growing increasingly pessimistic about the Pelicans willingness to do a deal with them. "But the more they wanted, the more it became outrageous and unrealistic". The Lakers actually putting that offer on the table, or the Pelicans rejecting it? The Davis camp has constantly leaked out that he has no desire to sign long-term with the Celtics, and has gone as far to use Kyrie Irving's impending free agency to their advantage. Which is why they offered those four teams. Davis informed the Pelicans that he wouldn't sign a five-year, $239 million supermax contract this summer or next.
