Celtics Refusing to Dangle Jayson Tatum in Anthony Davis Trade Talks

The Celtics may have to part ways with 20-year-old small forward Jayson Tatum if they want to acquire Pelicans All-Star big man Anthony Davis.

Anthony Davis wants the Lakers, but the trade offers have been underwhelming.

The Celtics are unable to trade for Davis this season because Kyrie Irving and Davis are both under rookie contract extensions, and you can not have two players like that on your roster. The uncertainty surrounding Irving could be a significant issue for the Celtics, though.

The Pelicans haven't considered the offers worthy of a response or countering, league sources said. "Danny Ainge has, in other words, let it be known the Celts are ready to take their chances with keeping Davis beyond the summer of 2020 when he can become a free agent".

Anthony Davis to the Celtics? As reported here again last Friday, the club took a similar stance in its pursuit of Paul George from in during the 2016-17 season. As the Lakers elevate their offer, including more top young players and even more draft picks into the offer, they'll keep closing the gap. The point guard will also most likely enter free agency in the summer and despite verbally committing to the Celtics many are unsure if he will re-sign after an inconsistent season with the team, who were the pre-season favorites to emerge from the East. He has been medically cleared to return from a broken finger.

ESPN.com reported on the latest drama in the high-stakes situation with Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline hanging over it all.

Davis requested a trade more than a week ago, informing the Pelicans he would not sign a supermax contract extension.
