Pelicans need to be overwhelmed to deal Anthony Davis before deadline – Woj | Get Up!

Adrian Wojnarowski says the New Orleans Pelicans have to get the deal of a lifetime if they are going to trade Anthony Davis before the trade deadline.

Straight up, this is what is going to happen. If AD doesn't feel like he's going to get traded to the Lakers before the deadline, he'll have Rich Paul tell the Pels organization that he's going to release a statement saying he will not resign with anyone but the Lakers, giving them a clearer picture of what they can get for him if they decide to let the deadline pass. If this comes to pass, Boston as well as other teams will not be willing to deal for a rental and they will have lost their chance to get Kuzma because they will no longer have any leverage. One way or another, AD will go to the Lakers and Kyrie, who is his best friend will follow the next year to join him and Bron to take down the warriors.

If a team wants AD, they're gonna have to give up at least 3 of their starters plus picks, Dubs are the only exception. Smarten up Pelicans, you better ask for the world. Another team may get AD but will certainly give up their depth.

Topsy Kretts
Topsy Kretts:
There’s no tampering here. Player to player conversations don’t count. Players have always talked to each other about playing with one another. Giannis even told AD to join the bucks but yet small market teams like the pelicans are upset at Bron. It’s your fault for being such a shitty organization that your star players want to leave. L.

I think the rockets lowkey are tryna find a way to get AD... especially if they were willing to give up 4 1st Round picks for Butler 😂😂
Tim Honks
Tim Honks:
If they won’t trade ‘em soon and get greedy they’ll wind up like the Thunder. They have no leverage whatsoever. If I were Boston I wouldn’t pursue him he won’t re-sign there and so will Kyrie. Tatum is something special Boston would be stupid to let him go. I’m a Lakers fan. If we trade for him our roster will be gutted like hell. So this is a legit complicated thing.
Joseph Garcia
Joseph Garcia:
I hope the pelicans keep him till the off-season. Boston will overwhelm them. Davis is the reason the Celts have been stocking all that talent/picks.

Tanner Adams
Tanner Adams:
Rockets can trade capella and Tucker plus four 1sts. How is the collection of low Potential talents lakers want to give worth more? Ingram hasn't grown at all in a long time, lonzo only was playing well for a few games before he's injury, kuzma is just another hot shooter that is easier to replace than most other types of tangible s. Capella is a decent replacement o
For ad and Tucker is a great 3 and d hardnose vet.
Indigenous TV

this just shows further proof that certain cities shouldn't have professional sports teams. New Orleans was thrown a bone because of Hurricane Katrina back in 2004 and quite frankly they've been treading water as an NBA city ever since. They haven't been able to hold onto franchise players and they've only had two: Anthony Davis and Chris Paul whom they drafted and groomed as their premier stars. Chris Paul eventually left for greener pastures and the same fate lay with AD. The league needs to look into where they allow teams to move and or expand and really try to utilize better judgment in that regard. There is no reason why New Orleans should be able to maintain a struggling franchise yet Seattle, Kansas City, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Saint Louis, and San Diego are cities bigger than New Orleans yet don't have NBA franchises. This isn't like Cleveland or Milwaukee because those are small markets with a long tenured history in the league, the Pelicans weren't very relevant with Anthony Davis they'll be NBA Siberia without him to be honest. Those cities I named, Saint Louis, San Diego, Seattle, Cincinnati, Kansas City, and Baltimore all have better infrastructures in place to house an NBA team. There's a reason why New Orleans lost the last two teams they had before the Pelicans. Of course I speak of the Jazz and the Hornets

😂😂NO can't catch a break, first the Saints now AD leaving.

Lakers are going to have to trade Kuzma, Lonzo, Ingram, Hart, Zubac, and multiple picks for AD and filler. Lakers have to do whatever it takes to get AD, Lebron isn’t getting any younger.

Lakers should trade LeBron for AD.
Joel Karr
Joel Karr:
The pelicans are stupid not to trade for him now. That’s why Rich Paul decided it was time for him to tell everyone because it lets other teams know he wants to be a Laker. That means other teams won’t offer the Pelicans much in return knowing that they won’t be able to keep him. The pelicans need to trade and they need to do it now

Ingram, KCP, Wagner, Zubac, Mykhailuk and like 4 first round picks. Lakers can entice the Pelicans by taking on a bad contract and trading it in the offseason.
