The Whiteboard: The New Orleans Pelicans should wait to trade Anthony Davis

Davis' list includes the following teams: the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks, Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers.

That offer is reported to have included Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, Ivica Zubac and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope as well as two first round draft picks.

The Pelicans - whose requests evolved over recent days - were seeking six to eight draft picks in the Davis deal knowing that that many first- and second-round picks were more than the Lakers would offer, the Times source said.

Davis prefers a move to the Lakers, league sources told Wojnarowski.

Still, this latest wrinkle is good news for the Boston Celtics, who reportedly remain undeterred in their pursuit of Davis, despite the 25-year-old and his father being down on Boston.

The question I'd like to pose for Pelicans fans is: would you want to enter a contract year for a budding player so soon after finally putting the Anthony Davis saga behind you? On the list of four teams, that's probably the best deal that anyone is going to offer. In fact, Woj reports that the Pelicans want to be "overcompensated" to even consider making a trade with LA.

This comes on the heels of Adrian Wojnarowski's earlier report that the club had been made aware of "a handful" of teams that the All-Star centre would be willing to sign for following a trade.

According to Shams Charania, the National Basketball Association sensation is willing to sign longterm deals with the Lakers, Bucks, Clippers and Knicks.

Too bad. Unlike ripping off a band-aid, this decision will shape the future of the New Orleans Pelicans franchise for the next decade.

In Morris' case, he would have to agree to sign with the Pelicans, a rebuilding team without Davis. They may also be willing to deal a young player, with Jayson Tatum being the name mentioned most. "But the more they wanted the more it because outrageous and unrealistic". The Lakers actually putting that offer on the table, or the Pelicans rejecting it? Davis requested a trade last week and is not eligible for free agency until July of 2020.

Deveney writes that the Blazers have shown interest in New Orleans Pelicans forward Nikola Mirotic, Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier, Atlanta Hawks guard Jeremy Lin, and Memphis Grizzlies forward JaMychal Green.
