Davis powers Pelicans, 'Wolves roll over Portland


Woj also notes New Orleans wants to re-sign DeMarcus Cousins this offseason, and it would take a "radical change in direction" for the Pelicans to consider putting Davis on the trade block.

Redick injured: Philadelphia guard JJ Redick could miss two weeks after injuring his left leg Monday, the team said. Just saying they're in the Hall of Fame is insufficient.

It will be interesting to see which things Davis values the most when the time comes for him to make a decision as things beyond money and market size could ultimately influence him. We had to fight back and do some things.

Like, hey, nice buzzkill, Alvin.

Davis is under contract with the Pelicans through the 2019-20 season, with a player option for 2020-21. Distractions are destruction in his line of work. "And I thought he was tired more than anything", Gentry said. "It's white noise. You just block it out and you move on". The only problem with the depth is that much of it is undersized, and if the Celtics' bench is really limited because of size problems the Celtics could be in some trouble. He's one of the few GMs in the National Basketball Association that could put together a package that would get New Orleans to even think about parting ways with the face of their franchise. "So when it in I just kind of felt like tonight was definitely my night". "I don't want to put words in his mouth, but he's never said anything to me but, 'I want to win and I want to do it here.' So it's up to us to just continue to try to put the necessary players around him to get that done".

"No, no, no, no, no", he said.

It seemed every minute or so, another player had a personal foul called on them. Before, during and after that game, all anyone could talk about was the possibility of Davis one day playing for the C's. "You don't trade him".

Discussions are expected to start next Wednesday, 24 January. "The gaps are narrow, but there are still significant differences to overcome".

Holiday wound up with 23 points, while DeMarcus Cousins had scored 19 points and pulled down 15 rebounds.

But Gentry isn't buying that either.

"We threw the kitchen sink at him", Budenholtzer said. "Our owner (Tom Benson) is going to do what's necessary". The Raptors and Cavaliers have left the door open for them to establish a great lead in the East, but that lead could disappear quickly if they are not able to win these kinds of games. "Whatever it takes to win, our owner's willing to do that".

Davis scored a season-high 48 points and grabbed 17 rebounds, leading New Orleans back from 19 points down late in the third quarter to a 123-118 overtime victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday.

At some point, they will need to show progress to keep their top people happy.

"I didn't think we had the energy to start the third quarter that we had played with in the first half. And then, you know, we had a drought there late where we had some good looks that didn't go and we had some possessions that weren't as good".

The Athletic's Tim Kawakami recently mentioned in an article that Davis was "the next great long-term Warriors acquisition target", and if the 24-year-old forward/center is interested in joining a superteam made up of players in their prime, there is a chance this could happen.
