  • ESPN.com: Sources: Pelicans open to multiteam Davis deal

    David Griffin, New Orleans' executive vice president of basketball operations, has started to provide potential suitors with the framework of the package he is seeking in a trade for All-NBA forward Anthony Davis, including multiteam scenarios that would expand the Pelicans' pool of assets in a deal, league sources told ESPN.

    So far, Los Angeles and New York teams --- the Clippers, Lakers, Knicks and Nets -- have been among the front offices inquiring with New Orleans, league sources said.

    The Boston Celtics have long considered a run at Davis, but they must take into consideration the future of free agent Kyrie Irving before committing to a significant offer.
