Lakers is considered the best suitor of superstar big Davis, but the Pelicans take time for any deal – especially one that could involve the Lakers.

L.A. has a star on the list at LeBron James, which is also represented by the same agent as Davis – Rich Paul. Wojnarowski and Lowe announce that the Pelicans are seemingly pleased with the fact that they are waiting for the next step with Davis – even at the time of the trading time. Even more of the ESPN story:

The Pelicans will not see any reason why Davis will get the Lakers into a deal with the whole season that remains on his contract – it does not mean you're doing it on a timeline that mostly benefits the Los Angeles and Davis goals.

Officials from New Orleans are ready to play a long game on Davis's future position and start an inconvenient, if not a combat process that could extend months to the next business term.

If Davis wants to be a Laker, it's just the mantra of the Pelicans: Feel free to join LA as a free agent in 2020 and potentially put it in the 2019-20 season – when James stands 35 – keep the needed open cap.

For now, Demps is guided by San Antonio Spurs's first playbook with Kawhi Leonard a year ago: Accept calls and listen to concepts and bids.

Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times says the Lakers president, Magic Johnson and Demps, spoke on Tuesday about how to deal with Davis's business talks. Johnson introduced Demps with five different business scenarios for Davis on Wednesday, reports Turner, and is waiting to hear from Demps who is most interested in it.

One of these scenarios would include Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac and number 1.

The Lakers want to make a deal and have no plans to try to overcome the Boston Celtics this summer. The Lakers are going to watch other free agents in addition to Davis, Turner reports.

About any other team that is not in the Lakers is expected (or already asked) to land Davis. Celtic thinks many NBA insiders as a team that could fight with the Lakers in trading for Davis. Wojnarowski and Lowe, however, announced that Paul and Davis' camp warned other teams that Davis trading could only be a short-term lease.

Davis may become a free agent in the summer of 2020, and according to ESPN, teams teach that his plan is to consider any business destination as a one-year stop – if that team is not a Lakers.
