According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the New Orleans Pelicans have been less than impressed with the Los Angeles Lakers’ first offer for Anthony Davis, as they seem reluctant to include some of the prospects they may be interested in.

Apparently, the Lakers have offered Rajon Rondo, Lonzo Ball, Michael Beasley, Kyle Kuzma, and a future 1st round pick, with Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and Ivica Zubac reportedly off the table.

The New York Knicks made quite a bold move when they traded away Kristaps Porzingis in order to clear as much cap space as they could so they’d be on a prime position to land two superstars in the summer.

Kevin Durant has been closely tied with a move to the New York Knicks all year long, and now they finally can offer him a bunch load of money. As per Sam Amick, the Porzingis move was made because they’re ‘very optimistic’ about their chances to land Durant in free agency.

The power plan for the New York Knicks is coming true.

Kyrie Irving Not Committed With Boston

Kyrie Irving is no longer committed to extending his stay with the Boston Celtics, as he’s reportedly going to do “what’s best for him” and wants media to “ask him July 1st” about his impending free agency.

As per Ian Begley, the point guard will explore his options and may even rejoin LeBron James in the Los Angeles Lakers, especially if they wind up moving Lonzo Ball on a potential Anthony Davis trade.
