As the sports world continues to talk about New Orleans Pelicans’ superstar Anthony Davis’ likely departure from the team in free agency, and a potential trade to teams such as the Boston Celtics or the Los Angeles Lakers, to name a few, head coach Alvin Gentry is doing his part to squash the scuttlebutt.
