Pelicans’ Davis changes agent; speculation begins

Pelicans star big man Anthony Davis requested a trade more than week ago.

New Orleans Pelicans star forward/center Anthony Davis has parted ways with agent Thad Foucher, according to a report from ESPN.

Davis may be leaning toward signing with Rich Paul and Klutch Sports, ESPN reported. Klutch Sports represents Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, Philadelphia 76ers wing Ben Simmons and a number of other NBA high-earners.

The Davis/agent news has already led to speculation as to where he may end up next. He has said repeatedly he is happy in New Orleans and feels connected with the Pelicans organization.

When healthy Davis, 25, is typically a league MVP candidate. He is coming off another spectacular season, averaging 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in 75 games. Davis and the Pelicans advanced to the second round of the playoffs, upsetting the favored Portland Trail Blazers along the way.

Davis has two years and $52 million left on his contract, as well as a $29 million player option for the 2020-21 season.

  1. The Pelicans are going nowhere fast. To me, Davis is only in New Orleans to bulk up his resume for a major franchise. So, he could go to Boston, New York, LA… places like that. Why stay in New Orleans, but for the money?
