Citing league sources, Wojnarowski also reported that Lakers president Magic Johnson made a more robust bid to the Pelicans for Davis on Monday, offering salary-cap relief, multiple young players, including Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma, and draft picks.

"I haven't been through anything like this", Gentry said of Davis' trade demand.

Whether Davis will play another game for the Pelicans is a question that Gentry couldn't answer. Hopefully you can see one of these deals coming to fruition. The Celtics, the team with the best assets to give to a small market team whose best player requested a trade, is not allowed to make a trade.

The Nets' opportunity to put a deal on the table including an All-Star level talent gives them quite the edge over teams like the Lakers, but it doesn't stop there.

Davis has been the hot topic in the National Basketball Association since he requested a trade out of New Orleans last week, and his agent, who also represents LeBron James, is trying his damnedest to team his clients up in Los Angeles.

The trade deadline is 3 p.m. EST on Thursday. They reportedly want six-to-eight draft picks for Davis. Davis's father, Anthony Davis Sr., has also come out and said that he doesn't want his son playing for the Celtics. And until any of the other teams on Davis' list submit a trade offer, that will remain unclear. When the Pelicans were reportedly underwhelmed, the Lakers beefed up the deal Monday.

"According to a source close to the Pelicans, that club has been informed the Celtics still will be willing to make a major offer for Davis in the offseason", Bulpett wrote.

In Morris' case, he would have to agree to sign with the Pelicans, a rebuilding team without Davis. "But the more they wanted, the more it became outrageous and unrealistic". Davis requested a trade last week and is not eligible for free agency until July of 2020.

Yes. So far, the Lakers have felt conversations with New Orleans have been one-sided and they are growing increasingly pessimistic about the Pelicans willingness to do a deal with them. Zion Williamson is the unanimous first pick and has been for months, and he has the makings of a franchise player who would bring tremendous energy wherever he goes. Davis will garner a super-max contract upward of $240 million whenever he lands.
