The 3 Most Exciting Anthony Davis Trade Destinations

anthony davis trade

Although Anthony Davis trade rumors are full of Lakers and Celtics news, there are more destinations that are far more interesting. It may be inevitable that AD ends up with LeBron James in LA or Kyrie Irving in Boston, but Kawhi Leonard and Paul George were also once destined to be Lakers. Each dark horse team on my list has enough pieces that there's a slight chance they could trade for Davis. It may be unlikely, but not impossible. 1. Milwaukee Bucks In theory, the Bucks could send a package of Khris Middleton, Malcolm Brogdon, Thon Maker, and draft picks to the Pelicans. This isn't the best package possible, but NBA GMs can be unpredictable in their decisions sometimes. Anyways, let's focus

All-Star Predictions: West Starters

After predicting the Eastern All-Star Starters, it's time to look at the West All-Star Starters. For me, there were many more possible candidates in the West than the East, and some choices were very difficult. The Western Conference is just ridiculously talented and, unfortunately, there is not enough room for everybody. Anyways, here are my starters: G- Stephen Curry - Golden State Warriors Season Averages: 28.9 PPG (48/44/91), 5.5 APG, 1.3 APG Although he's no longer playing at a unanimous MVP level, Curry has been incredible this season. Harden's insane scoring bursts may have overshadowed what Curry has been doing, but Curry is still tied for 2nd in the NBA in PPG. He's been insanely efficient as well. He currently leads the NBA in

Trade Finder: New Orleans Pelicans

The Pelicans currently find themselves in a strange situation, they aren’t bad enough to get a high draft pick, but aren’t good enough to make the playoffs in the loaded West. Obviously, they could trade Anthony Davis and blow it all up, but they’re also moves that allow them to become more competitive right now. If they want to keep Davis around they need to start winning. Half of their losses have been by 7 points or less, meaning they only need a small adjustment to improve. If the New Orleans Pelicans make one really good trade they should compete for home court in the West. The problem is the Pelicans have almost no assets making any trade extremely difficult. *I

Way-Too-Early 2018-2019 MVP Candidates

In just the first few weeks of the season, some players have already looked like MVP candidates. Their insane statistical outputs combined with their ability to be leaders on winning teams qualifies them for my way-too-early MVP candidates. Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors Season Stats: 33.9 PPG (53/52/90), 5.0 RPG, 5.6 APG, 1 SPG Early this season Curry has already proven he deserves to be reentered into the MVP discussion. After he dropped 51 points on the Wizards it's been obvious he had returned to MVP form. So far this season, Curry's scoring has been out of this world. He leads the NBA in points per game, total points, and total 3 pointers made while shooting 52% from three. The complete ease Curry has

Are the Pelicans Contenders in the West?

Just 3 games into the NBA season the Pelicans have shown flashes of how good they can be. After the loss of DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo this offseason, many people doubted if the Pelicans would even make the playoffs in the loaded west. Now, they have a 3-0 record including a blowout against the Rockets. Throughout this stretch, Anthony Davis has looked like an MVP candidate and Nikola Mirotic has been on fire. But, the real question remains: Can they compete in the West? Pelicans: Contenders or Pretenders? While it's unlikely they can topple the Warriors' super team, New Orleans has played as well as anybody else in the NBA. This season the Pelicans are playing at an extremely fast pace,

Preseason Preview #15: New Orleans Pelicans

Season Goal: Make the Playoffs With tons of trade rumors surrounding Anthony Davis, the Pelicans need to prove they can remain competitive. They experienced one of their best seasons in a while last year but lost Rondo and Cousins in the offseason. Losing two important starters in a loaded Western Conference is a major blow. But, on the bright side, they added Elfrid Payton and Julius Randle, allowing them to improve their depth. Also being able to play Davis at center should increase his impact and the team’s pace. So there’s no way to know how much their offseasons losses will affect them until the season starts. But, if the Pelicans want to resign AD when his contract expires they need
