REPORT: Lakers, Celtics engaged in talks for Anthony Davis trade with Pelicans

LeBron James, Anthony Davis

The Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, and New Orleans Pelicans have begun speaking on a three-team trade involving Anthony Davis, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski is reporting that the Celtics have remained undeterred in their pursuit of Davis despite the claims from his camp that he’ll be a one-year rental. Trading for Davis could also be a key to the Celtics keeping Kyrie Irving in Boston long-term.

In addition to that, Wojnarowski cleared up the report by stating that both the Celtics and Lakers are working on independent deals to acquire Davis. Neither team has the intention of helping the other acquire Davis, so one team is going to come up short here.

The Lakers have the fourth overall pick and young players in Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, and Josh Hart. The Celtics, on the other hand, have three first round picks and a couple of young players that could intrigue New Orleans in Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.
