There is no urgency for Pelicans to trade Anthony Davis – Amin Elhassan | The Jump

Tracy McGrady explains that even with Anthony Davis requesting a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans, the Boston Celtics are still the front-runners to land Davis with all the assets they have. Amin Elhassan breaks down why the Pelicans do not need to rush into trading Davis away, and he states his case for why the Los Angeles Lakers should offer their young core in a trade for AD’s services. ✔ Subscribe to ESPN on YouTube: ✔ Subscribe to ESPN FC on YouTube: ✔ Subscribe to NBA on ESPN on YouTube: ✔ Watch ESPN on YouTube TV: ESPN on Social Media: ► Follow on Twitter: ► Like on Facebook: ► Follow on Instagram: Visit ESPN on YouTube to get up-to-the-minute sports news coverage, scores, highlights and commentary for NFL, NHL, MLB, NBA, College Football, NCAA Basketball, soccer and more.

Unless I know for sure that I can sign that third star ,
If I’m magic no way In hell am I giving up all three of my young pieces for AD
To team up with an aging lebron
No way
Nobody’s beating G.S this year
There’s no guarantee of a third major star next year
And all youre gonna be left with is an injury prone AD
And older lebron

Magic should honestly wait till AD play out his contract
Then Sign him..
Add him to that young core who would be another 2 years wiser ,sharper , better
Look at Melo going to NY

Celtics won't make a deal until Ad promises to sign with them and not with La in 2020
You have to be mentally impaired to miss that the best strategy for the Pelicans would be to wait until summer and use the competition of the teams in their favor in order to maximise their gains. If they trade him to LA now I will start to believe that it is a rigged move posed by the league in order to make this season more exciting and push Lakers and LBJ
Great Zulu
Great Zulu:
My advice to Davis, you are still young in the NBA to talk about moving. You are playing with your career for asking a trade. Going to Lakers will not guarantee the championship because you feel James in the team is a sure credit. Cavs made that mistake last year and all the players were sold - because they tried to build the team around one man. This championship will still go to the best TEAM - GSW and Celtics. Gone are the days of individuals winning basketball.
So maybe the mistake the Pels made was not resigning Boogie

If the Celtics trade for AD then they can call it an even scrim on the DL. Then Ainge closes the sale and does the pitty pat move. It's a win either way for the scrim.
