According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski Davis’s agent, Rich Paul has notified the New Orleans Pelicans that Davis will not sign a long term contract extension and wants to be traded. While this comes as no shock to anyone the timing definitely does.
Now we have to sit back and see what teams are willing to part with some of their assets. The Celtics have the best package to offer by far. With their combination of young talent in Jayson Tatum, Jalen Brown, Terry Rozier, and their draft pick they can make the Pelicans a great offer. The question for the Celtics is they willing to part with Tatum?
Since this past summer, the Davis has been linked to the Lakers since he fired his agent and signed with Rich Paul LeBron's agent. According to multiple reports, the Lakers would be willing to part ways with all their young talent to acquire Davis. Now let us sit back and see what happens. In the age of the never-ending news cycle, the NBA is no exception.
