Lakers drop out of Anthony Davis sweepstakes after 'outrageous' request

Moore’s NBA Trade Deadline Primer: What I’m Hearing on Anthony Davis, Grizzlies, More

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said Monday that All-Star center Anthony Davis has been cleared to return to practice.

However, it has now been reported that Lakers have pulled out of a deal in a stunning turnaround. Giving the Boston Celtics a chance to make an offer is nice, but with Davis' camp and father apparently so against the Celtics New Orleans probably won't see Boston's best stuff.

The Lakers had extended the Pelicans multiple massive offers.

Davis prefers a move to the Lakers, league sources told Wojnarowski. When the Pelicans were reportedly underwhelmed, the Lakers beefed up the deal Monday.

The Lakers' most recent deal reportedly included all five of their young core: Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and Iviva Zubac, as well as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and two first round draft picks.

I offered up some thoughts yesterday on why Davis gave the list that he did.

Before you go and say, "Hey!" Although the Celtics can't be sure about Irving's forthcoming decision in July, they remain confident that he'll choose to stay in Boston, sources said.

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.

"If something were to occur with our team whether it's him or it's somebody else throughout the trade deadline we'll approach it then".

The Celtics could have as many as four first-round draft picks in June, and are guaranteed to have two - their own, and the one belonging to the Sacramento Kings.

The Pelicans' demands have reportedly gotten way too high for the Lakers. There's a real possibility that the Pelicans and Davis could agree on a limited playing schedule post-trade deadline, but that's undetermined.

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. It's possible the Lakers and Pelicans could resume talks. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2019-20 campaign. I doubt he would want to sign a large extension with a team bound for the lottery in the not-so-distant future.
