Pelicans adviser Ferry playing featured role in Davis trade talks

Anthony Davis

The Suns have reached out to the Lakers and Pelicans and made clear their interest in joining the trade as a third team, according to a person familiar with their conversations who was not authorized to speak publicly.

New Orleans' front office declined to play the six-time All-Star on Monday even though he was healthy, according to a report from Yahoo Sports, which cites unidentified league sources.

That was followed by Davis' father openly commenting that his son would not want to play there after Celtics GM Danny Ainge traded Isaiah Thomas following an injury three months after the death of Thomas' sister, and subsequent indications that while Davis had not specifically demanded a trade to any destination, that list was "expected soon".

The Pelicans are 23-31 and 2-8 in their last 10 games.

Recovering the body without raising the wreckage is complex, according to Ross Taylor of A-to-Sea Solutions, whose survey ship was used in the search.

Trade talk is all the rage in the National Basketball Association these days, given that the trade deadline is Thursday, so teams are doing all they can to try to make a move before the final buzzer (for this season) sounds.

Most reports say Davis is tired of Boston because he isn't convinced that Irving will re-sign with the Celtics this summer.

"They wanted more and more and more", the Times quoted one source familiar with the negotiations as saying. The Pelicans could wait until the draft lottery in May, when they'll have a better idea of when and how Boston's protected picks in deals with Philadelphia, Memphis and the Clippers could be conveyed in a deal. They also appear hopeful that the Celtics would include Tatum in a deal for Davis, which could be true, but may not result. Davis' camp is obviously trying to push him to the Lakers, but there will be plenty of teams interested in acquiring him, the list be damned. Or is he just selfishly happy he garners so much value on the trade market?

However the Pelicans had requested between 6 and 8 draft picks. Several rival GMs believe that New Orleans could use the Lakers' final offer at the deadline as the baseline for offers in the offseason. He has no plans to sign an extension with any team this summer, expecting to do so when he becomes a free agent.
