The Los Angeles Lakers are trying to get Anthony Davis, and it seems like he is doing his best to leave the New Orleans Pelicans.
If you ask Alvin Gentry, he will say he is not sure if Anthony Davis has played his last ever game wearing the Pelicans jersey. The Pelicans played without Davis since the he handed in the trade request. His agent, Rich Paul, made it public knowledge that Davis wants to leave, and the player had to pay $50,000.

So, this sort of brings hope to every Lakers fan. Is Davis really coming to town or what? That would be more than awesome!
