Pelicans Not Talking About Moving Anthony Davis

The New Orleans Pelicans have no plans to move superstar Anthony Davis, and are taking a patient approach to see how happy Davis remains with the franchise.

During an appearance on Jeff Goodman’s ‘The Good N’ Plenty Podcast‘, Yahoo Sports’ Chris Mannix spoke, at length, about Davis’ situation with the Pelicans.

“What everyone around the league is zeroing in on [is to see what Anthony Davis does]. They are waiting for the first time that Anthony Davis grumbles a little bit. They’re waiting to see either private or public consternation from Anthony Davis,”

“That’s the first domino to fall: once he starts griping a little bit about what’s going on there, and why they can’t put their type of team around him, that’s when you start to panic in New Orleans.”

“When I talk to people down in New Orleans – and look, they’re now fully entrenched there, I believe both the coaches and GM got extensions somewhat recently – they’re not talking about moving Anthony Davis, they’re not entertaining anything seriously about moving Anthony Davis. That could change, and probably will change once, and if, Davis starts grumbling publicly or privately about where they’re at.”
