Pelicans’ Anthony Davis listed as questionable to play vs. Bulls

NBA rumors Anthony Davis willing to sign long-term with four teams

NBA rumors Anthony Davis willing to sign long-term with four teams

The most recent reported trade proposal from the Lakers to the Pelicans included giving up Lonzo Ball, Kuzma, Ingram, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Josh Hart, Ivica Zubac and two first round picks, while taking Solomon Hill for cap relief.

With the trade deadline approaching, almost every member of the team has been mentioned as part of trade rumors for New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis.

But the Bucks and Clippers haven't made an offer for Davis, according to both reports, and the Knicks and Clippers are expected to save salary cap room for July free agency while the Bucks, with the NBA's best record at 38-13, would need major roster juggling to make an offer. Those two teams have yet to make offers for Davis and likely don't have the assets to make a deal happen, league sources said.

Davis, 25, is under contract through the 2019 season and has a player option in 2020. New Orleans has listed Davis as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls. However, the Celtics can (and quite possibly will) make a deal this summer once Irving either re-signs on a new deal or departs for a new start elsewhere. The trade deadline will pass Thursday, so those "LeBron's going to trade you" chants should die down after that. But, they are still "anxious to trade" for him and pair him with Irving, ESPN's report says.

The Lakers shouldn't count on this however, as the Pelicans still potentially have more to gain in a trade by waiting until the summer anyway when Boston and NY are able to offer their stockpiles of valuable assets.

The Lakers take on the Boston Celtics on Friday at 1am GMT as they look to return to form. There are also always three- and four-team trade scenarios that could open up new player and draft-pick possibilities to the Pelicans in the offseason.

Lance Stephenson, Michael Beasley and Rajon Rondo have also been linked to the trade talks from the Lakers.

If the Pelicans do decide to hang onto Anthony Davis for the rest of the season, they'll have to figure out what to do with him.
