Report: Davis focused on Lakers, Knicks as preferred destinations

Report: Davis focused on Lakers, Knicks as preferred destinations Anthony Davis has narrowed his list of preferred destinations down from four teams to two. The New Orleans Pelicans superstar is reportedly focused on both the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks as his desired long-term destinations, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania. It was reported in the days leading up to the trade deadline that Davis had informed the Pelicans' front office he'd be willing to sign with the Lakers, Knicks, Milwaukee Bucks, and Los Angeles Clippers. New Orleans has reportedly provided a framework for potential trades, including multi-team deals, to those inquiring about Davis' services.

One player that the Lakers ’ trade discussions with the Pelicans for Anthony Davis could hinge on? While widely assumed the Celtics would dip out on trade talks involving Davis should Kyrie Irving leave town, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Boston is still a full-go in the hunt for Anthony Davis .

Kyrie Irving to the Brooklyn Nets may not be the done deal many have come to believe.

A source close to LeBron James was apparently optimistic just a few days ago - before the reported Anthony Davis trade - that Irving, despite his strong link to the Nets, was still a possible acquisition for the Lakers, according to The Athletic's Sam Amick.

Davis landing in Los Angeles may not deter Irving, either. Sources have said for months that the 27-year-old guard has long wanted to play alongside Davis, The Athletic's David Aldridge reports.

If Irving - or any other superstar free agent - hopes to move to Hollywood, they would have to sign with the Lakers before the trade for Davis is finalized. In that case, the deal would have to wait until July 30 to become official. The New Orleans Pelicans and the Lakers, though, are expected to formalize the swap as early as July 6, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Report: Kyrie remains major target for Lakers.
The Los Angeles Lakers remain interested in Kyrie Irving and will pursue him after opening up enough cap space for a max offer, sources told The New York Times' Marc Stein on Thursday. The Brooklyn Nets have reportedly been the favorites to land Irving as it becomes increasingly clear the perennial All-Star will leave the Boston Celtics after two seasons. L.A. freed up space by reportedly dealing Mo Wagner, Isaac Bonga, and Jemerrio Jones to the Washington Wizards on Thursday as part of the Anthony Davis trade, making it a three-team deal including the New Orleans Pelicans.
