The Boston Celtics desperately want in on the bidding, but are unable to engage before the summer because Kyrie Irving and Davis each have designated player rookie extensions (the CBA forbids teams from having two players with the specific extension).
The Boston Celtics can't trade for Anthony Davis until the offseason thanks to the NBA's "Rose Rule", but they'll most certainly be linked to the six-time All-Star for as long as he remains with the New Orleans Pelicans.
James became just the fifth player in National Basketball Association history to eclipse 32,000 points during the contest.
LBJ's recent groin injury caused him to miss 11 games and the Lakers fell from third to 10th. However, valuable pieces to Boston's rotation and potential dynasty, like point guard Kyrie Irving, forwards Jayson Tatum and Marcus Morris and big man Al Horford could all be playing for other teams in just a few months all because Ainge is suffering from "FOMO" (fear of missing out). "If something were to occur with our team, whether it's him or it's somebody else throughout the trade deadline, we'll approach it then". New Orleans has listed Davis as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls.
The Lakers made its first move before the deadline trading young wing Svi Mykhailiuk and a second round pick for Detroit Pistons wing Reggie Bullock. "That's one of the things that makes it tough to play in this league".
Indiana Pacers fans cheerfully serenaded Los Angeles Lakers players with "LeBron's gonna trade you" chants during a 42-point win in Indianapolis. With not much and/or nothing left in the clip, Los Angeles had to step back from trade talks. Davis informed the Pelicans that he wouldn't sign a five-year, $239 million supermax contract this summer or next.
The five-time All-Star hasn't been in the Pelicans' lineup since January 18 due to a finger injury.
In Oklahoma City, Paul George scored a game-high 39 points and Russell Westbrook notched his seventh straight triple-double - his 20th of the season - with 16 points, 15 rebounds and 16 assists as the Thunder downed the Orlando Magic 132-122.
