RUMOR: Anthony Davis favored to not be with Pelicans when next season starts
The online betting site has Davis at a -200 to be with another team next season.
Reports came out after the draft lottery on Tuesday that Davis still wants to be traded by the Pelicans despite New Orleans securing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. The Pelicans are expected to draft Duke star Zion Williamson.
Davis can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2020. The Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics and New York Knicks are expected to reach out to the Pelicans this summer and see what it will take to acquire Davis, who is one of the best players in the league when healthy.
Davis played in 56 games in 2018-19, and he averaged 25.9 points, 12.0 rebounds and 3.9 assists while shooting 51.7 percent from the field. AD is the Pelicans’ all-time leader in points.
