Heat faces obstacles in any pursuit of Anthony Davis


His agent, Rich Paul, informed the Pelicans of Davis' trade request on Monday morning. The Lakers will absolutely inquire about trading for Davis, and if they are able to, they will quickly catapult to true contender status, though they would likely have to part with several of their young players in order to do so.

The Knicks are intriguing as a potential destination for Davis, as his addition would end their seemingly constant search for a franchise-altering superstar.

While it creates for an uncomfortable situation, the Pelicans are hardly up against the wall as the February 7 trade deadline nears.

The New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis plays against the Minnesota Timberwolves on January 12, 2019. In 41 games this season, the former Kentucky star is averaging 29.3 points, 13.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.7 steals - all career highs. Of course, all sorts of baseless rumors will appear now that Davis's request has been made public. In that time, the Pelicans have only made the playoffs twice, and have advanced past the first round once. If Davis doesn't re-sign, he is eligible to be a free agent in the summer of 2020.

Boston could agree to a Davis trade with New Orleans prior to July 1 and then finalize a trade after that date.

Boston would nearly certainly be a place that makes sense, since the Celtics are a contender and have more than enough assets to make a good deal for New Orleans. Furthermore, previous reports have indicated that Davis, who has a huge say in where he goes, would love to play in Boston. If the Celtics were to swing a trade for Davis this year, Kyrie Irving would have to be apart of the trade.

But for the first time, it would go her team's way as the Czech came up with a strong second serve to force the tiebreak. She is also the first Asian player to be world number one, and the youngest player to hold top spot since 2010.

Boston can not trade for Davis until July 1 because league rules wouldn't allow Kyrie Irving's and Davis' contracts under the designated rookie exception on the roster together.

Essentially, I don't see any reason why Paul would somewhat handicap Boston unless Davis indicated he doesn't have a strong desire to play there.

A year ago at this time, the Pelicans had perhaps the most dominant frontcourt in the National Basketball Association with Davis lining up with DeMarcus Cousins.
