The Celtics are among the teams rumored to have been considering pursuing Pelicans forward Anthony Davis over the past year. But if Boston lands the six-time All-Star, don’t expect him to call TD Garden home for very long.
Rich Paul, Davis’s agent, suggested to Sports Illustrated’s S.L. Price that if the Celtics were to acquire Davis, it would be on a rental basis.
“They can trade for him, but it’ll be for one year,” Paul told SI. “I mean: If the Celtics traded for Anthony Davis, we would go there and we would abide by our contract and we would go into free agency in 2020. I’ve stated that to them. But in the event that he decides to walk away and you (gave) away assets? Don’t blame Rich Paul.”
