Report: Anthony Davis Requests Trade from Pelicans

Updated

on

All-NBA forward Anthony Davis has told the New Orleans Pelicans that he won’t sign a contract extension and wants a trade.

Davis is eligible to sign a five-year, $240 million supermax extension this summer. He can become a free agent in the summer of 2020. Davis’ agent, Rich Paul, did not place pressure on the Pelicans to move Davis prior to next week’s trade deadline, sources said.

“Anthony wants to be traded to a team that allows him a chance to win consistently and compete for a championship,” Paul told ESPN. “Anthony wanted to be honest and clear with his intentions and that’s the reason for informing them of this decision now. That’s in the best interests of both Anthony’s and the organization’s future.”
