Anthony Davis flattered by LeBron James remarks but focused on Pelicans

LeBron James

Little did Rousseau know at the time that he'd be the one telling the New Orleans Pelicans they're in serious danger of losing Anthony Davis.

"Why is it not tampering if players are saying it?"

But general managers told the network that the National Basketball Association looks at comments differently when they come from players. "If you want to push Anthony Davis in LA, if you allow LeBron to interfere with teams, then just do it. Change the rules, and say "It's the wild, wild west and anything goes".

Barkley's concern with Davis joining the Lakers is that it would create another super team, resulting in more of an imbalance in talent distribution across the National Basketball Association.

"But give us a list of the rules that you're enforcing, and give us a list of the rules that you're going to ignore".

An NBA spokesperson told ESPN on Friday: "Each case is assessed on its own facts".

"I don't really care", Davis told ESPN's Zach Lowe of James' remarks following his team's 123-115 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday. James made "a comment about his interest in playing with another team's player".

The Pelicans center said he appreciated the kind words of James, who admitted Tuesday it would be "amazing" to play with Davis, but he couldn't quite reciprocate the longing publicly.

In September, Davis signed with agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, the agency that represents James and other star talent around the league.

"Boston has been hawking Anthony Davis for years", Wojnarowski said.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that several small-market general managers have been privately expressing their anger with the NBA's seeming unwillingness to enforce tampering rules. "It's open season on small markets and our players".

Davis has 18 months remaining on his Pelicans contract but is growing frustrated by his team's inability to challenge for the NBA Championship. He's averaging 28.0 points, 12.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.7 blocks per game for a Pelicans team that's 13th in the Western Conference.
