Lakers boost Anthony Davis offer as Pelicans get wish list

The Pelicans have lost seven of their past 10 games and slid to 13th in the west at 23-30, 5.5 games behind the Clippers. The Lakers have been engaged in serious trade talks with the Pelicans about him.

One member of the Lakers may have gotten it even worse than Ingram.

Davis hasn't played since January 19 due to a hand injury, but was cleared for practice Monday.

ESPN.com this week published a piece highlighting eight Davis trades "we'd like to see", with several writers suggesting scenarios that could play out either before Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline or after this season.

When he spoke to reporters last week for the first time since his trade request, Davis said he planned on playing for the Pelicans again this season if he was still on the team past the trade deadline.


While Paul is providing the Pelicans with clear options beyond the Lakers, questions still remain about those teams' ability to make compelling offers to the Pelicans.The New York Knicks were also on that extended list, but they were rejected in their offer of a package centered on Kristaps Porzingis prior to his trade to Dallas, league sources said.

Myles Turner hit a pair of 3-pointers, while Bogdanovic, Aaron Holiday and Cory Joseph added one apiece in the second period, during which the Pacers outscored the Lakers 36-20 to build a 69-46 halftime lead. "I still made the free throws". More than half the team's players - Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac, Kyle Kuzma, Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo and Michael Beasley - have all been mentioned in trade talks for Anthony Davis. Tatum and Brown would replenish the Pelicans' thin wing rotation and give them a chance to compete now with more upside ahead as they develop. "But the more they wanted, the more it became outrageous and unrealistic".

The five-time All-Star hasn't been in the Pelicans' lineup since January 18 due to a finger injury.

This is what makes trade talks so hard.

If the Pelicans do decide to hang onto Anthony Davis for the rest of the season, they'll have to figure out what to do with him.
