When the NBA trade deadline had passed, All Star F Anthony Davis was still a Pelican despite his public want to be traded. The Lakers made multiple offers to the Pelicans, all of which were declined. Now, Davis will have to wait until the Summer of 2020 when he becomes a free agent to sign elsewhere.
