Pelicans still have no interest in dealing Davis to Lakers

David Griffin, new executive VP of the Pelicans, reportedly has no interest in dealing Anthony Davis to the Lakers.

The wounds of what went down with the Los Angeles Lakers’ much-publicized attempt at prying Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans at the Feb. 7 NBA trade deadline.

So fresh, in fact, that even though the Pelicans are now being run by David Griffin — who professes to have an excellent relationship with Davis’ agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports — the Pelicans have no intentions, nor desires to grant Davis his wish and make a deal to send him to Hollywood to join Paul’s No. 1 client and childhood friend, LeBron James.

So says Brian Windhorst of ESPN:

Windhorst suggests the New York Knicks, armed with the No. 3 pick in the NBA Draft and the Dallas Mavericks’ unprotected first-round draft picks in 2021 and 2023 that came in the Kristaps Porzingis deal are in better position to get a swap done for Davis with New Orleans should the Pelicans opt to draft Zion Williamson with the No. 1 overall pick and want to build around a young core of players.
