The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers are engaged in independent trade talks with the New Orleans Pelicans for Anthony Davis, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Lakers have made Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, and their No. 4 pick in the upcoming draft available in a potential deal with the Pelicans, league sources told The New York Times' Marc Stein.
News of the Celtics' pursuit of Davis comes shortly after his agent, Rich Paul, said that the All-Star should be viewed as a rental option for Boston and not a long-term solution.
"They can trade for him, but it'll be for one year," Rich Paul told Sports Illustrated's S.L. Price. "I mean if the Celtics traded for Anthony Davis, we would go there and we would abide by our contractual (obligations) and we would go into free agency in 2020."
