One of the biggest stories heading into the offseason continues to be the saga involving New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis.

The Los Angeles Lakers have been heavily tied to Anthony Davis this entire season; even more so when Davis' agent and friend of LeBron James, Rich Paul, publically made a trade demand to try and force the superstar to LA with LeBron.

Co-host Michael Wilbon then chimed in with his confirmation: "They're just not going to do it".

The Pelicans and Lakers seemingly left trade deadline talks on acrimonious terms, with New Orleans reportedly upset L.A.'s multiple trade offers for Davis became so public and the Lakers skeptical the Pelicans gave them a fair shake in negotiations.

It is widely assumed the Pelicans want Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and all of the Celtics' draft picks in exchange for Davis. Regardless, if this truly is the case, the Lakers may be forced to wait until Davis hits free agency in 2020 for any chance at landing him.

The Los Angeles Lakers might have to be patient if they want Anthony Davis to rock Purple and Gold.

At All-Star media day, Davis said there isn't a list of teams he wants to play for. The whole mess even led New Orleans to fire general manager Dell Demps and its head coach, Alvin Gentry, to publicly call the situation a "dumpster fire."
