Could Anthony Davis Sign with the Raptors in 2020?

Could Anthony Davis Sign with the Raptors in 2020? In 2012, the New Orleans Pelicans chose to draft a potential star in Anthony Davis. While playing for Kentucky, Davis played 32 minutes a game, and averaged 14.2 PPG, 10.4 RPG, and 1.3 APG while shooting over 62% from the field. As a big man in his freshman year, he showed some flashes of greatness; although his modest numbers during his one and only season in college might not have shown all the potential that he had. That’s why it was such a risk for the New Orleans Pelicans to select Anthony Davis with the first pick in the 2012 NBA draft. It was also quite risky at the time, as Anthony Davis’s teammate, Michael Kidd Gilchrist was also putting up great numbers and showing a great deal of potential. Kidd Gilchrist was picked second. Some other players that were drafted after Davis in 2012 included Andre Drummond and Damian Lillard, respectively. These players did, in fact, emerge as NBA stars, and showed a smaller risk than Davis at the time. But as we now know, it was a risk worth taking. Anthony Davis emerged out of the gates as a decent NBA player, but he didn’t put up any absurd numbers: He averaged 13.5 PPG, 8.2 RPG and 1.0 APG. However, the next season, he would average 20.8 PPG and 10 RPG, a pretty good improvement. Every subsequent season, he would continue to show his skills enhancing by the year. Anthony Davis has been in the NBA MVP conversations recently, but it’s been tough for him to get recognition based on his team’s overall success.

There have been multiple trade rumours surrounding Anthony Davis early this season. After DeMarcus Cousins left the Pelicans and Davis became, once again, the only all-star on the team, NBA fans were wondering if the big-man wanted to leave. After hearing report after report as to the latest news on where Davis could be heading to next, there was one key thing to consider: Anthony himself didn’t say a word.

A very recent Davis rumour suggested that he wanted to head to the Los Angeles Lakers. This was one of the most accurate whisperings because the general manager of both the Pelicans and the Lakers have reportedly been discussing this deal for years. Of course, this matter is out of the hands of Davis, as he is not a free agent, and can be traded to any team because he doesn’t have a no-trade clause on his contract.

New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis has reportedly changed agents, according to an ESPN report . The five-time All-Star is separating from longtime During last season, Davis was subject to rumors circulating that the Boston Celtics were interested in trading for the three-time All-NBA player .

Anthony Davis (strained right hip) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Celtics after going through a pregame workout with team trainers. After the game , the Pels classified him as day-to-day. New Orleans won't have a shootaround today as they are traveling and on the second leg of a

Anyways, it’s been quite a hectic month and a half in the NBA, and almost everyone seemed to think that Davis was one step away from leaving New Orleans. This is why the revelation that Davis is in fact content in Louisiana is so astonishing. According to Basketball Insiders, Davis is not only is happy playing for the Pelicans, but he’s also never expressed any interest in heading to another team. Like any other NBA player, Davis is determined to win a championship, however he wants to earn it through hard work on the New Orleans Pelicans.

The MVP candidate is averaging 28 PPG, 13 RPG, 4.8 APG, 1.6 SPG, and 2.7 BPG (leads the NBA) through 21 games. Davis’s assists, steals, and blocks numbers are all career highs. It would be hard for a team to find a deal to even offer for such a valuable asset on the Pelicans; the Lakers don’t really have any eye-popping players that could potentially be part of the Davis deal (that they would be willing to trade).

If the Los Angeles Lakers try to make a trade for Davis, or a different big-name player, the Lakers need to be careful not to throw of their nice young core. Finally, the Lakers don’t seem like a team that even needs too much change. They have lots of youth, they have LeBron James, who is arguably the best basketball player on the planet. The future seems bright for the Lakers, and it doesn’t seem like they need any more change. It’s just about the youth evolving together, and the Lakers slowly developing into a contending team.

Anthony Davis flattered by LeBron James remarks but focused on Pelicans.
The inability of New Orleans to get over the hump despite Davis’ efforts have most believing he’ll sign elsewhere when he hits free agency.
