Anthony Davis admission
New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis has revealed he does not know where he will be playing next season.
“It is tough because you just don’t know. I don’t know,” Davis, who was expected to join the Los Angeles Lakers before the trade deadline, told HBO’s The Shop.
“I have one year left on contract, so I’m not sure what they’re gonna do.
“Obviously, I stated my intentions. But I did that this year and they [essentially said], ‘No, we’re going to keep you here.’
“So for me, it’s just not knowing what’s going to happen.”

Kevin Durant offer
The Atlanta Hawks are preparing a mammoth offer to sign Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant this summer, Sam Amick of The Athletic claims.
“Yet for Atlanta’s purposes, [Trae] Young’s progression has been positive enough to inspire a rethinking about this coming summer in which they’ll have approximately $41million in salary cap space,” Amick wrote.
“According to a source with knowledge of their thinking, the Hawks are so bullish on the development of Young, fellow rookie Kevin Huerter and second-year big man John Collins that they want to explore even the biggest and boldest of offseason plans.
“Translation: They’re planning to pursue meetings with the best-of-the-best in free agency when July 1 rolls around.
“It’s a half-court shot of sorts, to be sure, but they’d love nothing more than to fire that pitch to everyone from Kevin Durant on down.”
