Anthony Davis is paying for his agent making public comments about the New Orleans Pelicans star wanting a trade.
Davis sent the basketball world into a frenzy Monday after reports surfaced the superstar center asked New Orleans for a trade. His agent, Rich Paul, noted the 25-year-old had no interest in signing an extension with his current team. After Davis’ agent went public with the request, many teams began to surface as contenders to land the center, including the Los Angeles Lakers, New York Knicks and Boston Celtics.
But it now appears the comments will cost Davis a little bit of cash.
There’s no telling what uniform Davis will be wearing between once the Feb. 7 trade deadline hits. And even though the superstar likely will have plenty of suitors, it may be best to wait until July so New Orleans can get what likely would be the best offer from the asset-rich Celtics.
