'Significant' support within Pelicans to resist Lakers, hope for Jayson Tatum

But a deal sending Davis to the Laker remains far from imminent.

The Lakers are now offering the Pelicans a package that includes forwards Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma, guard Lonzo Ball and two first-round picks, as well as a willingness to absorb the remaining $12.7 million on Solomon Hill's contract in the 2019-20 season, league sources told ESPN. L.A. also is Davis' preferred long-term destination once his contract expires in 2020, a fact his agent, Rich Paul, has made very public.

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, the Lakers have withdrawn their offer for Davis after growing frustrated with the Pelicans' demands. On Monday, per multiple reports, an extended list of teams Davis would be willing to re-sign with emerged. It is unclear how close the two sides are to a deal, but the Lakers definitely appear more serious.

You have to work on the situation and, of course, we know in football you always have to improve, even when you win games". He said, " Jorginho needs movement without the ball from other players because he's used to playing at one touch ".

The NBA's trade deadline is Thursday.

The Lakers were willing to give the Pelicans salary-cap relief by taking back Solomon Hill (who has a year left on his deal after this season at $12.7 million).

Still, this latest wrinkle is good news for the Boston Celtics, who reportedly remain undeterred in their pursuit of Davis, despite the 25-year-old and his father being down on Boston. New Orleans must really like Jayson Tatum.

Davis has been heavily linked with a move to the Lakers for a number of months now, and the talks have stepped up in the past week since the star handed in a trade request.

"To Nola, that means Lakers offering 4 first-round and second-round picks as part of Davis package".

However the Pelicans had requested between 6 and 8 draft picks. Per the report, Lakers president of basketball operations Magic Johnson felt the team had made the "best offer that the Pelicans wanted" and did not want to add anything else. The Pelicans need to wait until they can get a player with that clear All-NBA ceiling before pulling the trigger. The Pelicans believe that the Lakers' bid at the trade deadline will still be available to them in the offseason, sources said. While acquiring Davis becomes a tougher task this summer, when the Boston Celtics can get involved, trading away that many assets for a single player is a poor way to build the roster.
