Report: Celtics and Lakers Engaged in Trade Talks for Anthony Davis

The Celtics and Lakers are engaged in trade talks with the Pelicans for star Anthony Davis, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, Davis' agent Rich Paul made it clear his client does not see a long-term future in Boston and will not sign a contract extension when his deal expires in 2020. That doesn't appear to have scared off the C's, who certainly have the assets to get a deal done.

Wojnarowski also states acquiring Davis could give Boston the best chance at retaining Kyrie Irving, who is set to hit unrestricted free agency on June 30.

More to come. . .
