Anthony Davis focused on only Lakers or Knicks long-term

Now comes some more information on this report.

Paul also dispelled the notion that he is trying to get Davis to the Lakers, where the versatile big man would be playing alongside former Kia MVP and Finals MVP victor LeBron James.

The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers are engaged in trade talks with the New Orleans Pelicans on All-NBA star Anthony Davis, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Zach Lowe, Ramona Shelburne and Brian Windhorst on Wednesday.

"They can trade for him, but it'll be for one year", Paul told the publication. The only problem for the Lakers is that the team does not have an established all-star outside of LeBron James, so the team is going to have to include a third team. (Despite repeated attempts, Demps never responded to SI's request for comment.) Instead, Paul says, Demps dialed up Davis himself - and never called Paul back at all. "Some in the organization are wary of giving up too many young assets or picks for Davis, citing the way things played out for NY in the wake of the Carmelo Anthony trade, per sources".

The results of the Lakers first year with LeBron has been disastrous.

However, the Bulls would have to bring a lot to the table to even appeal to Davis and the Pelicans with a potential trade package. What better place to do it than L.A.? "I have no idea", Paul said. Who gives a s- what you're talking about, about me trying to help LeBron out? Now, if helping Anthony Davis helps LeBron in the long run?

Aside from the betting odds being heavily skewed in the Lakers' favor, there have been a number of reports over the past two days involving both Anthony Davis and the Lakers.

Although it would be hard trading the young core, Davis fulfills the team's short- and long-term goals. Although a team like the Toronto Raptors or Milwaukee Bucks could offer intriguing pieces (Toronto has OG Anouby, Pascal Siakam and Norman Powell as intriguing pieces, Milwaukeee has sign-and-trade options with Kyrie Middleton and Malcom Brogdan), no team is going to outbid NY or Los Angeles on a potential rental.

Davis appeared in 56 games last season for the Pelicans, averaging 25.9 points, 12 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game. He's made the All-Star team six straight seasons, and has been named to the All-NBA team three times throughout his career.
