David Griffin, New Orleans’ executive vice president of basketball operations, has started to provide potential suitors with the framework of the package he is seeking in a trade for All-NBA forward Anthony Davis, including multiteam scenarios that would expand the Pelicans’ pool of assets in a deal, league sources told ESPN.
So far, Los Angeles and New York teams — the Clippers, Lakers, Knicks and Nets — have been among the front offices inquiring with New Orleans, league sources said.
According to front offices that have engaged in conversations with Griffin, he hasn’t sounded convinced that one team is likely to fulfill his wishes for a Davis deal. To that end, Griffin has been working to find multiteam trade scenarios that could redirect assets for players or picks more preferable to the Pelicans, sources said.
