The New Orleans Pelicans are at a crossroads after losing DeMarcus Cousins for the year. The team reportedly is trying to acquire Nikola Mirotic from the Chicago Bulls, but that deal has apparently fallen apart once although talks continue in hopes of reaching a resolution soon.
With a playoff spot far from guaranteed for sixth-place New Orleans, there’s renewed interest in the services of Anthony Davis around the NBA. That’s if, of course, the franchise centerpiece becomes available on the trade market. Sporting News reported on Tuesday that should the Pelicans find themselves not taking a step forward by the end of this season and make some changes in the front office, they’ll at least have to listen to calls about their superstar.
According to Sporting News‘ Sean Deveney, teams like the Boston Celtics and, yes, even the Golden State Warriors are already making it known they’d be interested in Davis if he were to become available this summer.
