This is an excellent conspiracy theory on Anthony Davis and the Lakers

NBA Commissioner David Stern left poses with the No. 1 overall draft pick Kyrie Irving

The Lakers last offer came Monday night and it included Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and Ivica Zubac to the Pelicans, as well as veteran guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, according to LA Times. However, the front office could also choose to shut Davis down for the remainder of this season and avoid risking an injury that could damage his trade value.

Whether Davis will play another game for the Pelicans is a question that Gentry couldn't answer. Gentry was then asked whether he is authorized to make the decision as to when Davis will play. There are 48 hours until the trade deadline for the teams to get the deal done. "They had cap relief with [Solomon Hill] being in the deal, but the more they wanted, the more it became outrageous and unrealistic".

This comes on the heels of Adrian Wojnarowski's earlier report that the club had been made aware of "a handful" of teams that the All-Star centre would be willing to sign for following a trade.

The NBA's trade deadline is at 1 p.m. on Thursday.

Davis, 25, was eligible to sign a five-year, $239 million contract with the Pelicans before deciding he wanted to be traded. In fact, Woj reports that the Pelicans want to be "overcompensated" to even consider making a trade with LA.

After performing the ceremonial face-off, Mourinho turned to exit the ice only to slip over on the carpet on his way back.

The trade as constructed above gives the Pelicans everything thing they said they wanted by providing the organization the opportunity to swing for the fences on the possibility that any of the three Lakers kids will become all-NBA performers.

The Boston Celtics, a team believed to be not only interested in the player, but also capable of presenting the best possible package to the Pelicans, are not among the teams that Davis would consider.

"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. Zion Williamson is the unanimous first pick and has been for months, and he has the makings of a franchise player who would bring tremendous energy wherever he goes.

Davis has two years left on his contract, although he does hold a player option for the 2020-21 season. Because of that, it's hard to predict whether or not the Clippers will submit an offer for Davis.
