Anthony Davis likes Lakers' final trade offer for him (on Instagram, anyway)

According to Shams Charania, the National Basketball Association sensation is willing to sign longterm deals with the Lakers, Bucks, Clippers and Knicks.

Still, this latest wrinkle is good news for the Boston Celtics, who reportedly remain undeterred in their pursuit of Davis, despite the 25-year-old and his father being down on Boston.

ESPN journalist Adrian Wojnarowski has reported that while Lakers will no longer bid "against themselves", there are willing to wait for Pelicans' next move over their offer.

According to Brad Turner, the Lakers pulled out of trade negotiations amid the outrageous asking price that the Pelicans had for Davis. It's believed Magic Johnson and the Lakers offered a laughably bad package of Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Rajon Rondo, Michael Beasley and a first-round pick in their first trade conversation with the Pelicans.

"They wanted more and more and more", one source said. However, the front office could also choose to shut Davis down for the remainder of this season and avoid risking an injury that could damage his trade value.

"I don't make those decisions", Gentry said. Irving, 26, previously said he planned to re-sign with the Celtics in the summer but has recently wavered in public on that promise.




New Orleans learned Monday of Davis' extended list of teams that he'd be willing to stay with long-term upon a trade. The league's landscape is certainly feeling the tremors of the campaign by Paul and Davis. They also appear hopeful that the Celtics would include Tatum in a deal for Davis, which could be true, but may not result.

The Pelicans' demands have reportedly gotten way too high for the Lakers. They reportedly want six-to-eight draft picks for Davis.

In Morris' case, he would have to agree to sign with the Pelicans, a rebuilding team without Davis. That means they are not allowed to acquire more salary than they send out.

A total of four picks - who can offer that? Because of that, it's hard to predict whether or not the Clippers will submit an offer for Davis. The Lakers actually putting that offer on the table, or the Pelicans rejecting it? He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2019-20 campaign.

Davis informed the Pelicans that he wouldn't sign a five-year, $239 million supermax contract this summer.
