The New Orleans Pelicans will reportedly not trade superstar power forward Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers this summer under any circumstance, according to Marc J. Spears of ESPN. The 26-year-old can opt out of his contract following the 2019-20 season and become an unrestricted free agent.

Once the National Basketball Association regular season is over, the Anthony Davis saga in New Orleans will come to an end. "They're just not going to do it", said Spears while filming for ESPN. "I've heard the same thing".

The Pelicans and Lakers each accused the other team of leaking information during their trade negotiations before the deadline, with Magic Johnson adding that the Pelicans of not negotiating in good faith. The news that Davis wanted to leave broke around a week before the trade deadline which led to plenty of teams trying to make trades with the Pelicans. AD, of course, has the same agent as James.

The Los Angeles Lakers have always been believed by many to be the destination for Anthony Davis. Los Angeles could still work a deal out with the Pelicans and might even have more success now that former GM Dell Demps is out of the picture.

Interestingly enough, Spears and Wilbon also mentioned the Clippers could be in play for Davis, with Spears noting a source told him there's "another team in Los Angeles that you've got to worry about".
