The Los Angeles Lakers acquiring Anthony Davis in a trade -- before he becomes a free agent -- is something that would require a seriously substantial offer. That goes for any team that is looking to pry the big man away from the New Orleans Pelicans before his current deal is up. Still, there are always ideas and rumors floating around -- and the latest trade speculation surrounding Davis has three teams involved, and a lot of players moving around the NBA.
Over the course of the last year, the L.A. Lakers and Boston Celtics have emerged as the favorites to land Anthony Davis. The only problem is that he's still under contract to the Pelicans for a couple more seasons -- but that still leaves the door open for a trade.
Again, the Pelicans have said that they would never trade away Anthony Davis, and, as reported by Inquisitr, that's even if Beyonce was part of a potential deal.
If the Pelicans aren't in the playoff run by the trade deadline in February -- and aren't competitive in the Western Conference at all -- Davis may play his trade card. He is not against staying in New Orleans, but Davis does want to win, and the Pelicans need to surround him with a roster that can help him to do that.
According to Brandon Robinson of Heavy, the possible new deal in the works could land Davis in L.A. if the Orlando Magic get involved and help out.
