Tania Ganguli: For those asking about @Adrian Wojnarowski and @Bobby Marks’s report, I did hear yesterday that the trade was expected to be completed as soon as the moratorium ends, but there was some uncertainty about whether that would ultimately change. Seems there still is.
Albert Nahmad: Timing of Anthony Davis trade doesn’t need to be decided now… Lakers could enter Moratorium on 7/1, negotiate with free agents, determine how much cap room they need, then sweeten trade to push it back from 7/6 (tho everyday after 7/1 would delay the wait-version of the trade).
The Boston Celtics were serious about trading for Davis, as well. They were willing to discuss young, talented players such as Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart, according to sources close to the negotiations. But the Celtics were never going to give up as much as the Lakers.
Calling those discussions in February “negotiations” is a bit of a stretch. The Pelicans were never serious about dealing with the Lakers then. They didn’t like being forced into this position by Davis and his representative, Rich Paul. And they probably weren’t going to let former general manager Dell Demps make this big of a decision anyway. So the Lakers — really just Johnson, because Demps wouldn’t talk to Pelinka — would call and Demps would write names on the board without giving them any feedback. Those names would leak publicly and do damage to the Lakers’ team chemistry.
When everyone came up for air and surveyed the damage, both sides realized there was still a hell of a deal to make if they could get over themselves. Said one source close to the negotiations, “The biggest difference this time was David Griffin [the new Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations]. He wasn’t involved before. He could negotiate frankly and fairly.”
NBA star Caron Butler was honored in his hometown of Racine on Saturday, June 15. The Racine City Council named a road after the former Milwaukee Bucks player: Caron Butler Drive. The road is the home of Dr. John Bryant Community Center, where Butler first picked up a basketball.
