Klay Thompson interested in joining Lakers if LA snags Anthony Davis

Pelicans reporter Andrew Lopez noticed the change before the Pelicans' home game on Wednesday against the Denver Nuggets.

Anthony Davis' agent let everyone know he wants out of New Orleans, and now it will cost his client $50,000.

Davis is under contract with New Orleans through the end of the 2019-20 season. The Celtics can not trade for Davis before the February 7 trade deadline due to a league limitation known as the "Rose Rule," so their roster will presumably stay intact for the rest of the season.

It's a legitimate issue, as Ball is arguably the best young player that New Orleans could get back for Davis in the event he's flipped to the Lakers.

A permanent move away would make sense for the Belgian, however, we have failed with some transfers going on to become big names. But Spurs have made a decision to not pursue a deal despite the injury to Harry Kane keeping the England captain out until March.


However, it has been reported that Ball is not interested in playing for the Pelicans and would prefer to be moved to a third team that doesn't have an established point guard.

Prior to Thursday, New Orleans general manager Dell Demps had been returning calls to other teams, just not Lakers GM Rob Pelinka, according to the report.

The biggest reason for this preference is because Ball's camp is unsure where he would fit in the Pelicans' current backcourt situation.

It didn't take long for the Pelicans' new intro video to hit the internet. Are they willing to risk waiting for the offseason and allowing the Boston Celtics to get into the mix? Stars continue to express their interest in playing exclusively for big-market teams alongside other stars, while smaller markets such as Cleveland face the challenge of building a contender through drafts.

Maduro appeared on a television broadcast from a military base on Tuesday, praising the soldiers' loyalty. Until now, President Donald Trump had held off on targeting Venezuela's vital oil sector.


However, if the Lakers want to execute a deal for Davis without giving up draft picks, there may be a way they can pull it off.

Dunn, who has been streaky this season, is averaging 12.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game. "It's just reality. It's more interesting to talk about all these Kardashian-like episodes that are going on".

But their hands are tied until the trade deadline as they can not have two players on designated contracts and at the moment Kyrie Irving is on one.

The league office said in a written statement released Tuesday evening that Davis violated a collectively-bargained rule prohibiting players or their representatives from making public trade demands.
