Having previously resisted breaking up their young core for Paul George and Kawhi Leonard in recent years, the Los Angeles Lakers face the possibility yet again as Anthony Davis requested a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans.

With the trade deadline fast approaching, what remains to be seen now is if the Pelicans look to trade Anthony Davis by the cut off date of next Thursday, or go into the summer where they could have more time to figure out the best package they can get in return for him. The timing of the announcement suggests he'd that to happen by the NBA's February 7 trade deadline.

Convincing Davis to re-sign with the Heat - instead of joining LeBron James with the Lakers - would be an uphill battle.

Davis' agent, Rich Paul, dropped a bombshell early Monday morning by handing in a trade request in behalf of his client. As Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports, the Knicks are expected to make a push for Davis, partially because they feel his presence will help lure players like Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and/or Kemba Walker as free agents.

Davis is averaging 29.3 points, 13.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.6 blocks per game this season.

"Even the Pelicans at the beginning of the season, well now they're not doing so great, but I think we just need to give them a little bit more time", Benson told me last month at her horse farm in Paris, Ky. There will undoubtedly be a mad dash to snag Davis as soon as possible, especially given that the Boston Celtics - longtime pursuers of Davis - are now prohibited by National Basketball Association rules from trading for the big man as long as Kyrie Irving is on the roster. If he wants Davis by his side, or if Davis wants to end up in Los Angeles, the Lakers will do whatever it takes to get him. They entered Monday 13th in the Western Conference standings, six games out of the final playoff spot with 32 games remaining. The Celtics could sign Irving in July and then trade for Davis. Telling the Pelicans that he won't re-sign with them provides a blunt message: Move me, or lose me for nothing. We're not going to trade him, no matter what.
