TBH, i thought maybe Durant would want to join him in the N.O. But i believe if another star or superstar were to join him or vice versa, a perfect fit for him to would be Lillard or Portland. Also Phoenix would be a great fit imo with Booker and Warren. I don't get why he has no star with him. I wonder if they even pitched for a star.

He would push TOR, POR, LAC to CLE/SA level. He pushes BOS probably a little below that.

I agree. Def in Toronto, he'd be a monster with Lowry & Defrozen.. Portland with him, McCollum and Lillard, Whoo Wee! That be on a nuke level, highly explosive. lol..

New Orleans is a small market team so the city itself may not be attractive to some players. Personally it's one of my favorite cities in the world but different strokes for different folks. I would imagine that players would want to play with Davis though because he's a great player though.

I'm not sure they've had the flexibility to bring in a star TBH. And even so, they're not one star away. Durant could have signed there and they still arguably wouldn't even be a top 4 team in the West (GS, SA, LAC, POR). They're pretty ****ing bad.

If I were Toronto I'd gut the team for him. Lowry has weight problems. Lowry has injury problems. Lowry will be 31, and in the offseason he'll receive offers of up to 150 million. The only way I don't trade Lowry this year is if I add another piece like Anthony Davis. Otherwise, Toronto with just Derozan and Lowry will never get past LeBron.

Raptors receive:

Anthony Davis
Omer Asik (terrible contract)

Pelicans receive:

Jonas Valanciunas
Terrence Ross
Norman Powell
Jacob Poeltl
Raptors 2017 1st Round top 14 protected pick (from LAC)
Raptors 2018 1st Round pick
Raptors 2017 2nd round pick (from New York)

Toronto:

PG - Lowry/Joseph
SG - Derozan/??
SF - Carroll/Siakam
PF - Sullinger/2Pat
C - Davis/Bebe/Asik

Pelicans:

don't matter

I don't like anything Portland has though for him, outside of Dame or CJ. One of those would have to go, and then everyone else on that squad has a big contract.

Anthony Davis is so versatile, he fits well on about any team or with any star. New Orleans obviously needs some back court players, and unfortunately, Jrue Holiday might be the best free agent point guard available this summer, unless the Pelicans think they can pitch Stephen Curry. Next summer, Russell Westbrook becomes available. He and Davis would be the most epic two-headed demon ever.

Davis/Lillard or a Harden/Davis duo full healthy would put teams on notice quick and would be a tough playoff matchup/team since each duo are capable of going off for 40-50 each on any given night(also with key pieces around them), out East he would be scary on any playoff team on the cusp of doing something big like a Celtics/Pacers/Bucks and he would push the Cavs to the limit if some how Raptors could pull it off while keeping the key core guys

if Lebron gets sick of the Kardashian mess then I am sure he could possibly talk AD to joining him in Cleveland where him and Irving would add another 7yrs to his already tremendous career, I know it probably wont happen but just throwing that out there as usual

if Davis throws it out in the media he wants gone then that clearly gives the other teams leverage as far as what they have to give up since he would be a young un happy superstar rotting on a bottom feeder

AD & Whiteside...

I would love to see the both of these players play together. It would be about defense & attacking the boards.

And if you throw in a slasher that can set them up, then you have the building blocks for a unique team.

While everyone is trying to go small this team would have a big advantage in the paint over most teams.

Right now Davis has too many years left on his deal to make that kind of demands. All teams would offer something better even if he said he only wants to play in Chicago.

That's why i came with this thread, because i have a feeling he's going to want out by deadline or summer 2017, maybe sooner. But like you said, they are a hot mess and the only way o get a good return is to trade him and at least grab picks for 2017. They'd at least still have Buddy Hield to build around with some 2017 picks. They'd at least could get 2 possible stars out of 2017 draft.

In the Pelicans official forum I talked about a trade with Phoenix and Philly.

We'd trade Davis and Holiday to PHX, Suns would trade Bledsoe to Philly, Booker, Tucker, Chris's and a 2017 1st to us, and Philly would trade us Okafor.

I feel like AD gets a lot of unwarranted heat for being oft-injured and not being able to carry his team by himself.

Fact is he's currently the best big in the league (though KAT isn't that far behind)

He's been surrounded by mismatched talent for his entire career and would greatly benefit from an actual NBA team surrounding him.

His ideal fit would be Portland IMO. Lillard, CJ, and AD is a hell of a trio. I think Lillard and AD are legit superstars and together they could contend with GS and Cleveland.

Players have the power to request/demand something if they are not happy regardless of the years left especially how ****** the team is and also how young he is he holds a lot of juice right now but if the team/owner wants to keep them that's another story, but I was only responding to the guy who made the Chicago trade offer because I know teams would have a better package unless he states publicly he wants to pull a DWade and go home, which I think Chicago is his home

if he said he only wants Chicago publicly then teams would low ball them or back out seeing that he wants to go home only, if that was the case

This makes no sense. If we put Davis on the market every team would inquire regardless if he said he wants to play in Chicago. Every team would have 3+ years to try and convince him to stay before having to trade him away. With all teams competing there's no way we get low balled.

Oh they wouldn't do most deals for sure.

But that gives them a core player to work around (Oka), cheap contracts to clear cap, a young 4, and tons of picks.

For the Sixers we kept 2 of our young stars. Cap flexibility, and some picks to add. Simmons-Davis-Embiid front line would end up destroying the NBA.

too bad the Bucks took back MCW instead of the 2017 Laker 1st rounder in the Knight/MCW deal. Jabari/Monroe/Lakers 1st could have been an interesting offer for Davis. they dont have the pieces, only a few teams do.

Makes plenty of sense if he said he only wanted to play for Chicago, I didn't say put him on the open market, I was responding to a guy who put out a Chicago trade proposal and I clearly stated it wouldn't happen because teams could put forth better packages for him

are you not able to make sense out of who I was actually responding to? if not then of course it makes no sense but if Davis went out to every media outlet and proclaimed himself wanting to go only to Chicago Bulls and told the owner to make it happen then why would teams get heavily involved if the owner agrees to make his public demand come true?

nothing would ever make sense if you just take one line from what I said and try to twist it, read my reply in full so it wont go over your head and maybe it might make sense and dollars

Oh they wouldn't do most deals for sure.

But that gives them a core player to work around (Oka), cheap contracts to clear cap, a young 4, and tons of picks.

For the Sixers we kept 2 of our young stars. Cap flexibility, and some picks to add. Simmons-Davis-Embiid front line would end up destroying the NBA.

that would be a poor mans frontline of Lebron/Dream/KG, only if they could turn back the clock and have The Answer in that backcourt with those athletic bigs/wingman to work with

only in my dreams (and on my dynasty team).

too bad the Bucks took back MCW instead of the 2017 Laker 1st rounder in the Knight/MCW deal. Jabari/Monroe/Lakers 1st could have been an interesting offer for Davis. they dont have the pieces, only a few teams do.

I think Davis is a Celtic. Ainge needs to throw those assets to NOH and complete the flip.

Celtics don't have the assets to pull it off. No cornerstone piece. That's what's important in a deal. I think only PHI (Embiid/Simmons) and the Lakers (Ingram) have the necessary cornerstones if NO decided to move him now. It would take one of those players plus a ton more obviously but if they did make a deal they'd need that type of cornerstone piece.

I hear ya, but I dont know man Bostons collection of assets is so diverse, there's a lot to offer.

I really think Amir Johnson (match salary), Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier, Jaylen Brown, Brooklyn 2017, Brooklyn 2018 and one of LAC or Mem 2019 1st gets it done.

with the pelicans being 0-7, they could trade him off for a package like this. they'd secure two top five picks next year, the natural and Brooklyns. they'd do that for two years. Smart, Rozier, Brown, Hield, Diallo, 2017top5, 2017top4, 2018top5, 2018 top5, 2019 1st. thats a hell of a rebuild. celtics turn KG and Pierce into a newly inked 23 year old Anthony Davis and they challenge for the finals with a Thomas-Bradley-Crowder-Horford-Davis starting 5.

How about a Randle/D-Lo package for him?

works for me but Randle and Jabari play the same position, if I'm the Bucks Giannis is off the block. not sure if there's a single player other than maybe Leonard and Towns with a better combination of youth, talent, upside, coachability, durability and contract size.

You replied to me saying that how many years Davis has doesn't matter in term of who would be willing to trade for Davis. Every team would call about Davis if we put him on the block because they would have him under contract for another 4 years. They wouldn't care if he didn't want to be there until they were convinced they couldn't change his mind.

They need to trade him, and I think it will happen this season, likely at the deadline. The dude is having a great season so far, dropping Aldridge-like numbers, but it's folly because his team just isn't equipped. Their other two primary scorers bolted first chance they got. Davis' contract is attractive given the new salary cap, and he would get the Pelicans a good package in return. Dude deserves better.

You said he has too many years left on his current deal to make that demand and I disagree because he holds all the power if he actually wanted out of N.O. and wanted to only go play for the Bulls as I was replying to someone who made the Chicago proposal, you just came in and tried to make something else out of it like a media worker does

This makes no sense. If we put Davis on the market every team would inquire regardless if he said he wants to play in Chicago. Every team would have 3+ years to try and convince him to stay before having to trade him away. With all teams competing there's no way we get low balled.

True...

Teams would still line up to make a trade. N.O want trade him until 2yrs left on that contract; but like i said before, we don't no the position of the leauge behide close doors.

They might want AD out East to create another super team.

You are the one getting caught up into something not even an issue. Whether it be Chicago or 29 other teams Davis is under contract too long at the moment to deter other teams from making a deal with the Pelicans. Therefore his demands would be meaningless which was my point everything else you are talking about had nothing to do with my point and you're being all defensive for no reason.

The best place for Anthony Davis, is the best place for every player in the NBA...under Lebron's wing and on your way to a guaranteed championship series. AD would love to play with Lebron, that would be an unfair matchup. lebrun would make the game so easy for AD.

He'd have an easier time playing with Durant and the Splash Bros.

No he wouldn't. We're seeing LeBron transition into a Magic Johnson type role now that he finally has the offensive help from his teammates. Maybe that changes if Kyrie+Love slow down but for now, I think his role is to get others more involved than ever. Warriors are filled with volume scorers (Steph, Klay, KD). Adding AD to that team would make them better defensively and that's it.

Btw, do you have Kov or Ward? I'm thinking Kov tbh.

I'm not expecting a knockout even though Kov can literally knock anyone out. I'm wondering if Kov and GGG could meet at a catchweight.. That would be amazing.

Yea I'm a big Kovalev fan. Ward is local but that's not really a factor for me, doesn't play a part in if I like a fighter or not. I think it will be a great fight, Kovalev is going to try and take his head off and both are facing the best opponent of their careers.

Also a huge GGG fan :)

you the one getting caught up in your Pelican emotions because I was never replying to you to begin with, so you are getting caught up in my response/opinion which shouldn't be an issue unless it rubbed you the wrong way, which it obviously has

his demands would mean a lot being he is a max-allnba-superstar with youth on his side, if Davis wanted out and said I only want to play with Lebron/Cavs only then why would any team try to figure out a way to gut the team to acquire a player who states publicly/demandingly he only wants to play for one team and then the Cavs start to engage talks with the Pelicans about making that happen

I don't get being defensive when I was stating who I was replying to, it had nothing to do with your issues about what I said because I felt like that Bulls deal wasn't nowhere near enough and said it would only happen if Davis came out and said my hometown Bulls or nothing, you had no point off top you just twisted up what I said and starting getting defensive because of your Pelicans, which I am sure you own no stock in that franchise

now you know damn well that isn't enough to get Davis when teams could make better offers, but if he said Chicago only and no other team he will play for publicly then teams will back off majorly as far as what they would have initially offered which would basically take them out the running

I never said teams wouldn't line up for Davis if he was avail on the open market so I don't know why you keep trying to make that a big deal

If Washington is in such supposed turmoil, I can see a deal involving Wall and Davis... Washington has no real draft assets besides their own and it shouldn't be worse than the Pelicans...

Wall, Oubre and Washington's 17' 1st for Davis and Pelicans 17' 2nd from Philly...

I'm hoping and praying it's the C's...

Both BK's 1st's in 17' and 18' (which aren't looking so gold anymore), Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and a whole lot of fillers... Also, Boston can take on some bad contracts if needed...

But, the Pelicans should have the #1 pick this year which in of itself is very good to have... (They can easily package that draft day for something else, or someone else)... I do agree that a cornerstone piece of a player is needed, but not many teams can offer both a player and picks...

Forever35
11-14-2016, 11:05 AM
I saw Chicago in some posts, but I would think Butler would have to go, but that's all they really have besides their own 1st which won't be great especially if Davis is on Chicago...

I also think the Pelicans need a player with a decent sized contract so they know they have someone for the long term...

Indy can move Turner along with filler pieces like Jefferson... (but they have no draft assets)...

The Bucks can move Parker and Monroe, but they also don't have any nice draft picks...

I can definitely see Jackson moving KP for AD...

The Pelicans having a top 3 pick this year is huge IMO...

I Also agree that the league would like Davis in the East...

Even if Davis forced a trade to Cavs. Pelicans probably say cough up Irving and Love for Davis and dead weight of Asik then it's a deal. Besides maybe a couple Cavs picks as well even though they'll be late picks.

Pelicans say no but that's a decent offer if they had to part ways with Davis. If its a no then we throw in local New Orleans Moose for Asik. That should get them to say yes.
