Anthony Davis focused on Lakers, Knicks as preferred destination

At this point, it seems clear that between their young players and various first-round picks, the Celtics can offer the Pelicans the best package for Davis.

For example, those sorts of scenarios could include the Lakers helping to find a team that hypothetically values Los Angeles' young players more than New Orleans does, or NY could flip its two first future first-round picks via the Dallas Mavericks into players the Pelicans prefer.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police revealed in 2014 that 1,017 aboriginal women had been murdered between 1980 and 2012. The impact on these families is indescribable, he said.

"According to front offices who've engaged in conversations with (general manager David) Griffin, he hasn't sounded convinced that a singular team is likely to fulfill his wishes for a Davis deal". It is also possible that the Pelicans could consider a multi-team trade, Wojarnowski said. But recent news indicates that a team like the Bulls could be a factor in a potential deal involving the New Orleans Pelicans and Davis' eventual destination.

While Griffin has offered no firm timetable on a trade taking place, he has indicated he prefers the acquisition of 2019 draft picks to take place before the June 20 event in Brooklyn, Wojnarowski reports.

Davis, a free agent at the end of the 2020 season, was not traded by the Pelicans prior to the NBA's trade deadline in February. It's tough to peg who the Bulls could get back in a three-team deal with those involved, but players like Brooklyn's Spencer Dinwiddie or New York's Kevin Knox could be on the table for the No. 7 pick. He's a restricted free agent, so the Pelicans would likely have to be willing to pay him a max contract. While there was some thought the Pelicans securing the No. 1 pick in the National Basketball Association draft would change Davis' mind, that's not the case.

Warriors down 3-1 in NBA Finals
The Raptors' speed and length are what should propel them to a title unless the Warriors have a historic comeback left. And then it's possible that Durant, a free-agent-in-waiting, has played for the Warriors for the last time.

The Boston Celtics offseason now is in full swing, and that means the rumor mill is packed with speculation regarding Kyrie Irving's impending decision. He wants to be in Los Angeles long-term.

The Pelicans hired Griffin in April, and he immediately embarked on a campaign to convince Davis to reconsider his desire to leave the franchise.

If Durant can somehow play through the injury and even be a shell of his healthy self, this series is far from over. Despite the Warriors having a wealth of players who have playoff experience, some of their younger core do not.
