Anthony Davis’ future has been heavily discussed throughout the last couple of months. With multiple rumors that the New Orleans Pelicans’ superstar could end up with either the Lakers or Knicks, it’s the LA team that‘s emerged as heavy favorites to land AD.
According to Bleacher Report, the Lakers are currently -500 favorites to pull of a trade. On the other hand, the Knicks are listed at +375 favorites to trade for AD. With the Pelicans once again set to listen to offers for Davis, there’s a chance the deal could reached ahead of the June 20 NBA Draft.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations, David Griffin, has reached out to teams and provided them with a framework on who they hope to get in return. New Orleans’ desired package for Davis reportedly consists of an All-Star player, a young player with All-Star potential and two first round draft picks.
With reports that the Lakers were looking to trade Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, as well as several draft picks for Davis last season, it comes as no surprise for them to try again. The Lakers also hold the fourth overall pick of this year’s NBA draft, which could end up being included in the Anthony Davis trade package.
