The big story around the league today is of course Anthony Davis’ trade request and announcement that he will not re-sign with the Pelicans. Davis can reach free agency in the summer of 2020, so the Pels don’t have to trade him right now, but probably need to do so by the summer. It’s a huge disappointment for the Pels, of course, who failed to successfully build around Davis and are now facing starting over.
While the Wolves obviously will not be in the mix for Davis, a couple of Wolves related thoughts occur to me:
- It might be in the Pels best interest to start trading everyone they can in an attempt to a) lose as much as possible this year and b) get back whatever they can for future iterations.
