LA Clippers Rumors: Lakers reportedly "pull out" of Anthony Davis trade talks

NBA Commissioner David Stern left poses with the No. 1 overall draft pick Kyrie Irving

The latest reports of the talks between the Lakers and Pelicans on Tuesday were that Los Angeles was unwilling to continue sending trade offers to New Orleans, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. I guess we'll just have to see what, if anything, Davis, Rich Paul and Klutch Sports have left up their sleeve.

When it comes to the Knicks, Wojnarowski reports that the Pelicans rejected a package centred around Kristaps Porzingis, who the team traded to the Dallas Mavericks last week. They may also be willing to deal a young player, with Jayson Tatum being the name mentioned most.

New Orleans learned Monday of Davis' extended list of teams that he'd be willing to stay with long-term upon a trade. Before getting to that, though, in fairness there is appeal in getting it over with and making the deal before Thursday's trade deadline. Giving in to the Pelicans' demands for between six and eight draft picks would have been lunacy.

Still, nothing has changed for the Celtics, Bulpett reported, despite news that Davis' father has said he doesn't want his son to play there, or that the Celtics supposedly aren't a team with which Davis would sign an extension in July 2020.

What's more, there's a small possibility that the Knicks could win the draft lottery and become viable candidates for a trade.

So far, the Lakers have felt that conversations with New Orleans have been one-sided, and they are growing increasingly pessimistic about the Pelicans' willingness to make a deal with them, sources with knowledge of the discussions told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

As Woj tweeted Monday, the Pelicans want a player with an All-NBA ceiling in return for their own All-NBA mainstay. And until any of the other teams on Davis' list submit a trade offer, that will remain unclear. Because of that, it's hard to predict whether or not the Clippers will submit an offer for Davis. There's a real possibility that the Pelicans and Davis could agree on a limited playing schedule post-trade deadline, but that's undetermined. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2019-20 campaign.

A total of four picks - who can offer that? Davis informed the Pelicans that he wouldn't sign a five-year, $239 million supermax contract this summer or next.
