That offer now is believed to include Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson, Michael Beasley and two first-round picks.

The Los Angeles Lakers are said to be pessimistic about New Orleans' willingness to deal AD. He already got hit with a big fine for his public trade demands, and now his people are making clear what teams he'll sign with.

The New Orleans Pelicans can not allow themselves to get bullied into taking a deal early that doesn't net them the proper return.

Pat Bowlen and Champ Bailey named to Hall of Fame
Reed, a nine-time Pro Bowl selection, teamed with Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis on some of Baltimore's stout defenses. Bailey played ten seasons in Denver and five with the Washington Redskins eventually retiring as a Bronco in 2015.

Davis reportedly wanted to suit up after missing seven games with a finger sprain before team executives denied his efforts. If Los Angeles doesn't get him before Thursday's trade deadline, it will be a lot tougher to strike a deal in late June or early July when the Celtics will be likely involved. They reportedly want six-to-eight draft picks for Davis. This news comes after a text sent to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne on Friday from Anthony Davis Sr., Davis's father, who indicated that he didn't hold a favourable opinion of the organization and hoped his son wouldn't want to play for the Celtics.

Lakers pull out of Anthony Davis trade talks amid "outrageous" requests by Pelicans.

Portland is expected to make Harkless available, according to sources, as well as the team's first-round pick. However, the Lakers would not send the "six to eight" draft picks that the Pelicans wanted, which is why they have chose to pull out of discussions.

The biggest surprise among the rumours, is that apparently the game will be unveiled and released this week. Supposedly, Apex Legends will actually be running on a heavily modified version of Valve's Source Engine.

The Boston Celtics are not on Davis' list.

What's more, there's a small possibility that the Knicks could win the draft lottery and become viable candidates for a trade.

The February 7th deadline is fast approaching and the window for the Pelicans to move Davis this season is closing. There are also always three- and four-team trade scenarios that could open up new player and draft-pick possibilities to the Pelicans in the offseason.

Trump to Call on Democrats to ‘Heal,’ and Bashes Pelosi Over Wall
Hammill said Trump had mischaracterized Pelosi's position, since she has proposed ways to secure the border without a wall. Pelosi has, after all, offered the president more than $1bn for border security: just not for building a wall.

Deveney writes that the Blazers have shown interest in New Orleans Pelicans forward Nikola Mirotic, Orlando Magic guard Evan Fournier, Atlanta Hawks guard Jeremy Lin, and Memphis Grizzlies forward JaMychal Green. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2019-20 campaign. Davis informed the Pelicans that he wouldn't sign a five-year, $239 million supermax contract this summer or next.
