The Boston Celtics are, and have been, targeting New Orleans Pelicans’ superstar forward Anthony Davis, and if the Pelicans do indeed shop him we can expect the Celtics to be major players.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Celtics have had an interest in Davis for a long time:

“But now you have L.A., and if they get shut out in free agency, they’re going to have to take all their young players to try to use them to get Anthony Davis.”

Davis is averaging 28 points, 12.4 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 2.8 blocks per game for the Pelicans this season.

It’s a choice.”
