New Orleans not concerned with Anthony Davis changing agents
The New Orleans Pelicans don’t seem worried about their talisman player, Anthony Davis, has changed agents, according to Scott Kushner of The Journal Times Advocate.
Davis recently fired longtime agent and New Orleans native Thad Fouchon for undisclosed reasons and is still evaluating potential suitors to hire. Among them as the frontrunner, is LeBron-James-led agency Klutch Sports — something that has sparked rumors of a potential link to the Los Angeles Lakers, who has targeted Davis for a while.
“The Pelicans, per a variety of sources, don’t seem particularly concerned about Davis exchanging agents, regardless who he hires. And they shouldn’t be,” wrote Kushner.
The Pelicans have made Anthony Davis their main concern, also a huge reason why general manager Dell Demps didn’t offer the recently-injured DeMarcus Cousins more than the reported two-year, $40 million deal, knowing the franchise would be on the haul for a large max contract once Davis was to become a free agent.
New Orleans is still able to offer Davis more than any other team, and no agent will change that fact. The Brow’s desire to leave will hinge on how close the Pelicans come to contending for the Western Conference title and if they can get past the juggernaut the Golden State Warriors have proved to be.
Davis’ exit would be more of a need than a want in order to wind up with hardware, not something based on his agent’s preference or ability to persuade him in what’s best for his career.
