Celtics Including Jayson Tatum in Trade Talks for Anthony Davis

Davis has 32 double-doubles on the season and is second in the National Basketball Association in player efficiency rating and points per game.

Everyone else is talking about Anthony Davis potentially being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, so LeBron James might as well get in on the action. "If you let that bother you, you're in the wrong sport".

"I've had teammates every year be a part of trade deadline discussions and things of that nature and we've always figured out to just shield that away and play the game".

Nevertheless, the Celtics remain determined to acquire Davis after the season, and Celtics GM Danny Ainge has directly urged Demps to wait until the offseason, when the Celtics have promised to be aggressive with their wealth of draft and player assets to try to acquire Davis, league sources said.

James, still working his way back after a 17-game absence, said he felt "alright" if not 100 percent.

Despite the lopsided result, James did make some history in the loss.

Davis' agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, seems to have made some inroads into tightening the trade market on the Pelicans, limiting what some rivals might be willing to offer based on the fear of losing Davis as a rental in 2020 free agency.

Blake Griffin's 29 points and eight assists led the Detroit Pistons to a 105-92 win over the New York Knicks.
