Klutch Sports and Anthony Davis envision the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks as the only fitting destinations for the All-Star power forward.
According to The Athletic, Davis narrowed his official preferred list of four teams submitted to the Pelicans at the 2019 All-Star break to only two. Still, Davis has no say in the matter based on his existing contract. He could choose to instruct Rich Paul and Klutch Sports to inform suitors he will not sign beyond next season, but the same message of uncertainty didn’t halt the Toronto Raptors’ 2018 pursuit of Kawhi Leonard.
In the meantime, the Pelicans are trying to get a grip on Davis’ market. Davis said during the 2019 All-Star break that he wouldn’t turn down a trade “anywhere” in the NBA but described his motive as “just wanting to win.”
