It appears that the New Orleans Pelicans have accepted that they need to let go of Anthony Davis. Now, it’s just about getting the best possible deal for the franchise.
For executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin, that means getting involved in some serious wheeling and dealing.
Anthony Davis (26), controversially requested a trade away from New Orleans in January. The Los Angeles Lakers were in for him, but a deal never materialized. The two men who held the talks, former Lakers president Magic Johnson and Pelicans GM Dell Demps, have new jobs.
As a result, there is now uncertainty over where a star player like Anthony Davis could end up next season.
