The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers are engaged in separate trade talks with the New Orleans Pelicans in pursuit of star forward Anthony Davis, league sources told ESPN on Wednesday.

The Lakers and Celtics are negotiating competing trade packages to acquire Davis, whom David Griffin, New Orleans’ executive vice president of basketball operations, seems intent on trading prior to the NBA draft on June 20, league sources said.

New Orleans and Los Angeles have canvassed the league to find a third team that would use the Lakers’ No. 4 overall pick in exchange for sending a high-level player to the Pelicans as part of a deal, league sources said.

Nevertheless, Boston is still determined to trade for Davis, a six-time All-Star and three-time All-NBA selection, and hope that he can be a lure to keep All-Star guard Kyrie Irving from leaving in free agency.
