The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers are engaged in trade talks with the New Orleans Pelicans regarding Anthony Davis, according to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski, Zach Lowe, Ramona Shelburne and Brian Windhorst of ESPN.
The report indicates that the Lakers have discussed including their No. 4 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft to help the Pelicans acquire a high-level player in a possible multi-team deal.
Davis has one year, plus a player option, remaining on his current contract with the Pelicans. The 26-year-old requested a trade from the team in January.
The Chicago native is a seven-year NBA veteran and six-time all-star. He was the first overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft.
