Los Angeles Lakers Reportedly End Trade Talks For Anthony Davis

After the Lakers historic loss to the Indiana Pacers, Brandon Ingram spoke with reporters about the chant against him that went viral.

The Celtics are unable to make the deal with New Orleans prior to the trade deadline on Thursday due to both Davis and Kyrie Irving playing under "designated player" contracts, as each National Basketball Association team is only allowed one under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement. It's possible that they'd allow Davis to regain his starting role after the deadline passes and held him out last night as a precaution, but this is an interesting development to keep an eye on nonetheless.

James' teams lost by 36 points twice previously.

After trying to low ball the Pelicans with its first offer for Anthony Davis, the Lakers got more serious offering multiple players and first-round picks. The Pelicans are 20-21 when The Brow plays.

They found evidence of toxic enzymes, known as gingipains, that are released by P. gingivalis , as well as DNA from the bacterium. The researchers hope this will provide the basis for developing a new therapy that could one day treat humans in a similar way.

Nevertheless, the Celtics remain determined to acquire Davis after the season, and Celtics GM Danny Ainge has directly urged Demps to wait until the offseason, when the Celtics have promised to be aggressive with their wealth of draft and player assets to try to acquire Davis, league sources said.

The Celtics are reportedly not on the list of teams Davis would be willing to sign a long-term deal with. There will be effects in terms of what Celtics head coach Brad Stevens knows he can get out of the players he receives in return, as - despite being seldom used - Boston's end-of-bench pieces are always ready to make impact plays once they step on the court and trusted to do so.

Despite this, the Pelicans are looking for more as they have allegedly told Magic Johnson they want to be "overwhelmed" in the potential deal. There's a real possibility that the Pelicans and Davis could agree on a limited playing schedule post-trade deadline, but that's undetermined. With not much and/or nothing left in the clip, Los Angeles had to step back from trade talks. He has no plans to sign an extension with any team this summer, expecting to do so when he becomes a free agent.

The Pelicans are being especially careful with Anthony Davis.
