New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis wants out.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Davis has informed the team that he has no intention of signing a contract extension with the team and would like to be traded, according to his agent Rich Paul.

“Anthony wants to be traded to a team that allows him the chance to win consistently and compete for a championship” Paul stated.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Davis has already told teammates of his decision.

Davis would be forfeiting his opportunity for a supermax extenstion, one that could pay him around $240 million over 5 seasons, if he leaves New Orleans.

Davis is currently slated to reach free agency in 2020, and will be linked to the Los Angeles Lakers, which he has been for a while.
