Davis, 25, informed the New Orleans Pelicans over the weekend that he has no intention of signing a long-term contract extension, and that he’d like to be dealt.
Per Yahoo Sports:
The Lakers’ brass had a meeting Monday morning in large part to coordinate the franchise’s plans, sources said.
Philadelphia, which could put together a fairly competitive offer for Davis, currently has no plans to pursue a deal, sources said. Rich Paul of Klutch Sports represents Davis and Ben Simmons, and a deal centered on swapping his clients is highly unlikely.
Regarding team preferences, Boston is not a top target for Davis, sources said. There’s a growing belief of uncertainty that Kyrie Irving will re-sign with Boston, sources said, even though he vowed to do so at the beginning of the season.
