What the Boston Celtics could offer for Anthony Davis

NBA rumors Anthony Davis willing to sign long-term with four teams We can practically hear millions of Warriors fans wondering the same thing right now...More

The Pelicans and Lakers have engaged in trade talks for Davis, and Los Angeles made a harder push on Monday by offering six players and two first-round picks, according to the Los Angeles Times. I guess we'll just have to see what, if anything, Davis, Rich Paul and Klutch Sports have left up their sleeve.

Magic Johnson must overcome a significant desire within the Pelicans organization to let Thursday's deadline expire with Davis remaining on the roster, league sources told ESPN.

Although Davis would have been exactly the type of player the Heat have been looking for, one who could bring them back to contention, it looks as if they won't be able to acquire him anytime soon. Is he glad the Lakers are no longer making offers for him ahead of the trade deadline? They may also be willing to deal a young player, with Jayson Tatum being the name mentioned most.

After the trade demand from Davis went public, reports surfaced that Boston "was not a preferred destination" - not once, but twice in a span of four days.

Trade talk is all the rage in the National Basketball Association these days, given that the trade deadline is Thursday, so teams are doing all they can to try to make a move before the final buzzer (for this season) sounds.

The replies section was quickly flooded by fans calling it one of the worst half-time performances in Super Bowl history. Outkast: One of the former Outkast members, Big Boi , arrived in a Cadillac while someone was driving it on the turf.

Too bad. Unlike ripping off a band-aid, this decision will shape the future of the New Orleans Pelicans franchise for the next decade.

Lakers pull out of Anthony Davis trade talks amid "outrageous" requests by Pelicans. The Suns have reached out to the Lakers and Pelicans and made clear their interest in joining the trade as a third team, according to a person familiar with their conversations who was not authorized to speak publicly. With an impressive arsenal of assets, there is reason to believe that Brooklyn could make the New Orleans Pelicans the best offer, or at least an offer they can't say no to.

"According to a source close to the Pelicans, that club has been informed the Celtics still will be willing to make a major offer for Davis in the offseason", Bulpett wrote. And even if they did want to make a move, what is their best offer?

The importance of Davis, and moving him, is why New Orleans needs to wait. The Davis camp has constantly leaked out that he has no desire to sign long-term with the Celtics, and has gone as far to use Kyrie Irving's impending free agency to their advantage.
