Anthony Davis not interested in Pelicans' ability to offer supermax

Anthony Davis not interested in Pelicans' ability to offer supermax

James, a four-time NBA MVP, made the comments in an extended conversation with his business partner Maverick Carter, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley, and the actor/rapper Ice Cube.

"That would be awesome", James told ESPN on Tuesday before the Lakers' 115-110 loss to the Brooklyn Nets, referring to the Lakers landing Davis through a trade.

Davis isn't slated to become a free agent until following the 2019-20 season but he recently switched agents and now retains Rick Paul of Klutch Sports, the same agent who represents James. "If we wouldn't trade him for her, he's probably untouchable". But my job is to turn this team around.

Facing a barrage of criticism from conservatives, including President Donald Trump, the National Football League ruled in May that players had to stand during the anthem on the field, but could remain off field if they wished.

LeBron James is just as much a businessman as he is a basketball player.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry told reporters on Friday morning (local time) that they were "not trading him", referring to Davis. "I mean, do we even have to look any further than that?" New Orleans still sits at 12th in the Western Conference, however, with a record of 15-16. He said that not even Beyonce could tempt him to trade Davis, which is setting the bar nearly unattainably high.


He is eligible for a supermax extension this summer worth $239 million over five years, should he choose to stay with New Orleans.

As the National Basketball Association season progresses further and further, it seems like early free agency & trade rumors for five-time All-Star Anthony Davis continue to surface. I talk their slang. James and Davis teamed up previously at Staples Center in the All-Star Game in February, with James, the captain of the East squad, drafting the big man to his team.

On the other hand, the Pelicans are only going to want to ship off their superstar, who already holds the team's all-time scoring record at 25 years old, if they can receive enough young talent to quickly rebuild.

Adding Davis would obviously be a significant financial commitment, but the idea of a Lakers team featuring arguably the two most versatile players on the planet sure sounds like a true title contender.

At 28 points, 2.8 blocks, 12.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game, it's a lot of work for a job he's apparently not doing.
