Anthony Davis unlikely to back off trade request

Anthony Davis unlikely to back off trade request While new Pelicans head of basketball operations David Griffin has talked about wanting to try to convince Anthony Davis to remain in New Orleans, that looks unlikely to happen. An NBA source tells Fletcher Mackel of WDSU in New Orleans that the arrival of Griffin hasn’t impacted Davis’ stance — he still wants to be traded (Twitter link). Asked by Mackel if things could change in the coming weeks, the source advised not to expect to a change of heart from AD, despite the fact that Griffin and agent Rich Paul have a strong relationship.

Mac Engel: Feel free to hate Briles and Baylor, but make sure to do your homework on the subject.
There are too many sad elements in this tale to count, but the media has failed in the Art Briles/Baylor saga from the start. From our inability to see some of these sexual assault allegations when they were occurring in real time at Baylor, to labeling Briles as a man who endorsed and fostered a culture of rape.
