David Griffin Reveals Assets Pelicans Will Seek In Anthony Davis Trade

Pelicans Anthony Davis

Los Angeles Lakers: Power ranking the team’s assets

Will the Pelicans be able to convince Anthony Davis to stay put?

The New Orleans Pelicans are seeking a current All-Star, a future one and two first-round picks in exchange for Anthony Davis, and they would prefer the framework of a trade to be in place before the draft, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. According to Wojnarowski, the Pelicans and Griffin are "pursuing a combination of assets that include an All-Star player, a young player with All-Star potential and two first-round picks". Those wants are on a sliding scale. The Knicks have the extremely valuable #3 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft to dangle in front of the Pelicans, but their best asset after that is rookie wing Kevin Knox, a player New Orleans isn't necessarily impressed by.

The Pelicans tried to change Anthony Davis' mind, but that failed.

We've seen situations similar to this, with superstars desiring to be traded to particular destinations, and not play out in the player's favor. A multiteam trade might be the most likely scenario.

Denver seemed like they were only interested in adding Davis during the season to try to make a deeper playoff run this year, but that's no longer a scenario that's on the table for them with the trade deadline long passed and the post-season winding down. The Suns, meanwhile, will use their pick to grease the wheels of the transaction, and grab a point guard, a position of need and what they're reportedly trying to do with the pick.

Why: Apparently the Celtics are committed to pursuing Davis whether they get Kyrie Irving back or not. But if they make the call, this is what the trade would look like. Williams, meanwhile, is an athletic freak of a project who fits into the Pelicans' time frame. Duke's Zion Williamson is locked in as the No. 1 pick for the New Orleans Pelicans, but what comes after that? The Celtics fulfill their dream of a superteam at a high cost, but if it creates a championship contender, it's hard to imagine Danny Ainge, of all people, saying no.

The Denver Nuggets could be a sleeper team in the Anthony Davis trade sweepstakes.
