Watch: Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry addresses Anthony Davis situation

Watch: Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry addresses Anthony Davis situation The New Orleans Pelicans are in the midst of a drama-filled week that started with star big man Anthony Davis publicly requesting a trade from the team. Since then, the Pelicans have suggested that tampering could’ve played a role in Davis’ request. For his part, the All-Star center was fined $50,000 by the NBA for requesting a trade — by the way of agent Rich Paul. Currently sidelined to injury, it remains highly unlikely that Davis will be dealt before next week’s trade deadline. In no way does this mean he will ever play for the Pelicans again. Just ask NOLA head coach Alvin Gentry, who had this to say prior to Wednesday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets.

None of them, however, are likely to be traded during the season. In today’s salary-cap world, it’s rare for a noteworthy NHL star to be moved before the trade Here’s a look at the biggest names currently floating in the NHL rumor mill and why none of them will be traded before the deadline .

The NHL's 2019 trade deadline is fast approaching, and rumors are swirling over which players could be on the move and where they could end up.

As per usual at this time of year, most of the speculated trade candidates are slated to become unrestricted free agents in July. Among them are several noteworthy players likely to be highly prized by postseason contenders, including Senators forward Matt Duchene and the pair of Blue Jackets teammates Artemi Panarin and Sergei Bobrovsky.

Here's our list of the 10 players most likely switching jerseys by the NHL trade deadline at 3 p.m. ET on Feb. 25.

LeBron James thinks trade rumors have been ‘tough’ on young Lakers

LeBron James thinks trade rumors have been ‘tough’ on young Lakers LeBron James has never personally dealt with trade rumors, but he imagines they’re not easy for any player to handle. James’ Los Angeles Lakers got hammered by the Indiana Pacers 136-94 on Tuesday night. The lopsided loss seems to show that the players are not giving max effort because they’re bothered by trade rumors. More than half the team’s players — Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac, Kyle Kuzma, Lance Stephenson, Rajon Rondo and Michael Beasley — have all been mentioned in trade talks for Anthony Davis. James was asked whether he thought the players were bothered by the rumors and gave a mixed response. "You can't really ask me.

For contenders looking to load up for a Stanley Cup run, this year's trade deadline includes a healthy mix of rental options as well as players with term. Here are our top 10 available.

10. Sergei Bobrovsky, G, Columbus Blue Jackets

The two-time Vezina Trophy winner is struggling through his contract year, likely due to his ongoing unhappiness in Columbus. Nevertheless, he could attract interest from clubs looking to upgrade in goal. While most teams can wait to pursue Bobrovsky in this summer's free agent market, there's talk the Panthers could try to acquire him before the trade deadline.

9. Cody Ceci, D, Ottawa Senators

Most of the focus is on the status of teammates Matt Duchene and Mark Stone, but Ceci has surfaced of late as a possible trade candidate. A mobile blueliner with a right-handed shot, the 25-year-old is a restricted free agent with arbitration rights this summer. The Oilers, Lightning and Canucks could be among his suitors.

ROUNDUP: Panthers could target Artemi Panarin, Sergei Bobrovsky

8. Artemi Panarin, Columbus Blue Jackets

Panarin recently informed the Blue Jackets of his unwillingness to discuss a contract extension during the season.

As leading scorer, he's vital to Columbus' playoff hopes but the team risks losing him to free agency in July for nothing. It could take at least a promising young scorer, a first-round pick and a top prospect to pry Panarin away from the Jackets. The Avalanche, Islanders, Panthers, Predators and Sharks could attempt to land him before Feb. 25.

7. Micheal Ferland, LW, Carolina Hurricanes

Trade speculation surrounding the 26-year-old Ferland has cooled off. While Carolina is jockeying for a wild-card spot, it's believed it doesn't want to lose the winger for nothing via free agency July 1. There's talk the Flames, who shipped Ferland to Carolina last summer, might try to reacquire him. Also rumored to be in the mix are the Canucks, Bruins and Maple Leafs.

6. Gustav Nyquist, RW, Detroit Red Wings

As the Wings continue to rebuild, it's anticipated they'll peddle several veterans for draft picks and prospects by the deadline. Having reached the 40-point plateau this season for the sixth time in his career, the 29-year-old Nyquist should prove tempting for teams in need of a scoring winger.

If he's willing to waive his no-trade clause, the Avalanche, Hurricanes, Stars, Sharks and Jets might show some interest.

5. Kevin Hayes, C, New York Rangers

A big forward who can play all three offensive positions, the 6-5, 216-pound Hayes is on pace for a career-best 60 points this season.

While the Rangers would prefer re-signing the 26-year-old, the cost could exceed $6 million annually, turning him into potential trade bait before the deadline. The Avalanche, Jets and Stars could take an interest in Hayes.

4. Dougie Hamilton, D, Carolina Hurricanes

Carolina is deep on the blueline but needs scoring punch at forward. Hamilton, 25, could be their best trade chip to address that need. He's also the only player on this list signed beyond this season. Teams seeking blueline depth, such as the Canucks, Oilers, Maple Leafs or Islanders might find Hamilton appealing.

Mike Conley says he was unable to sleep while in trade rumors

Mike Conley says he was unable to sleep while in trade rumors In case the results of the Los Angeles Lakers’ 42-point loss to the Pacers didn’t already tell you, being the subject of trade rumors is not easy for players to handle. Mike Conley is proof of that. Conley was placed on the trade block by the Memphis Grizzlies, but he made it through the deadline without being dealt after teams did not meet the Grizzlies’ asking price for him. This was the first time in his career that he’s dealt with these kinds of rumors, and he said on Thursday that he was unable to sleep while part of the rumors. Conley said he hadn’t slept in “two or three days” as the deadline neared: “I don’t even know how I played [tonight] to be honest with you.” pic.

3. Mats Zuccarello, RW, New York Rangers

Still in the midst of a rebuild, the Rangers are expected to dangle several pending UFA veterans like Zuccarello. A four-time 50-plus point producer, the 32-year-old winger stumbled through the first half of this season but his production has recently improved. Trade conjecture has tied him to the Flames, Stars, Penguins and Golden Knights.

TWO DOWN, ONE TO GO

Maple Leafs' attention turns to re-signing Mitch Marner

2. Wayne Simmonds, RW, Philadelphia Flyers

Despite the Flyers' recent surge into playoff contention in the Eastern Conference, the team is still expected to trade Simmonds before the deadline. The 30-year-old power forward hasn't been the same since undergoing pelvic surgery last year. Still, his physical two-way style could prove enticing to clubs like the Avalanche, Bruins, Flames, Golden Knights, Lightning and Maple Leafs.

1. Matt Duchene, C, Ottawa Senators

The Senators are attempting to re-sign Duchene and Mark Stone with the latter sounding the keenest to staying in Ottawa. If the 27-year-old Duchene isn't re-signed by mid-February, the Senators are expected to shop him for the best return. Teams seeking a skilled offensive center, such as the Bruins, Hurricanes and Jets could come calling.
