David Griffin Reveals Assets Pelicans Will Seek In Anthony Davis Trade

  • Celtics quiet as Pelicans set the bar for Anthony Davis trade

So far, Los Angeles and NY teams -- the Clippers, Lakers, Knicks and Nets - have been among the front offices inquiring with New Orleans, league sources said.

Although the New Orleans Pelicans deciding against dealing Anthony Davis by the 2018-19 National Basketball Association trade deadline, the saga hardly came to an end.

That runs contrary to a report last week that indicated the Celtics would pursue Davis, no matter what Irving's future holds. The Lakers, Knicks, Clippers and Nets are the four teams that have had conversations with Griffin thus far, while the Boston Celtics remain interested in Davis but may wait to see how the Kyrie Irving situation plays out. And of course the Los Angeles Lakers have made it publicly known that they want to trade for Anthony Davis. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, this also includes multi-team trade scenarios. Anthony Davis wants to be traded, and David Griffin being the intelligent general manager that he's proven to be in the past, will try to secure a nice package for the superstar sooner rather than later.

United Technologies and Raytheon are merging in an aerospace mega
The companies have a combined market value of almost $166,000,000,000 with United Technologies being twice the size of Raytheon. It could also push other defense contractors, such as Lockheed Martin Corp, to explore expanding their commercial businesses.

ESPN reports: "For example, those sorts of scenarios could include the Lakers helping find a team that hypothetically values its young players more than New Orleans, or NY could flip its two first future first round picks via Dallas into players that New Orleans prefers". He wants to be in Los Angeles long-term.

None of the three perennial All-Stars ended up on any of the aforementioned teams they wished to be traded to, however. A multiteam trade might be the most likely scenario. In addition to the draft pick, L.A. can put a package together that includes a combination of Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma.

They reportedly were among the players the Lakers were willing to part with as they are believed to have essentially pushed all their chips into the center of the table at the trade deadline. Here are the Lakers' current assets ranked five through one.
