Rumor is going around in the NBA that the Lakers, Bulls, and Knicks are willing to trade their players for Anthony Davis. Anthony Davis, a power forward and center (the big man of the team), refuses to sign with the Pelicans for next season. Where could this All-Star possibly land?

The Lakers have been eyeing Davis for such a long time ever since LeBron joined the team. LeBron always wanted to play with another All-Star when he signed with them, but the Lakers had no chance of finding one. Now, ever since the Davis crisis escalated, they are discussing a trade for Davis giving up Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Ivica Zubac. Although it is not confirmed, the Lakers really want LeBron to be paired up with an All-Star and possibly win more games with him on the roster.

Even though the league is roaring with possible trades, there could possibly be a three-way trade between the Knicks, Pelicans, and the Lakers. if such thing happened, the Lakers would acquire Anthony Davis while the Pelicans receive a lot: Michael Beasley, Tim Hardaway Jr., Brandon Ingram, Frank Ntilikina, Knicks’ 2020 first-round pick, Lakers’ 2019 first-round pick, Lakers’ 2021 first-round pick. The Knicks however, receive Lance Stephenson, Lonzo Ball, and Kenrich Williams.

The Pelicans struggle to keep Davis under their contracts as one NBA owner said, “She’s still learning. I would guess it’s going to be a challenge for her.”

They continued on saying that Adam Silver would offer help if they need it. “I would think Adam [Silver] would offer guidance if she wanted it.”

Before the outcome, Alvin Gentry, the Pelicans head coach believed that they will not trade Davis as he says, “We’re not trading him. I can say that to the world. We’re not gonna trade him, no matter what. That’s not an option. It doesn’t matter what anybody says or does. We’re not trading Anthony Davis.”

Everything changed and now the entire league is now seeking an opportunity for Davis.

“Oh my God, any team that Davis goes to, he’ll win it all. Give him to the Lakers and see what happens,” Junior Billy Busacca says,

The Davis trade rumors are sparking up and every single team wants in for Davis. But where could he possibly land? No one knows, but let’s see next season.
