Anthony Davis’ dad not on board with son joining Celtics

Davis Sr. seemed to indicate the treatment of Thomas was not an isolated incident, telling ESPN he's "just seen things over the years with Boston".

The past 24 hours have seen quite the acceleration in the talks surrounding New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis. Because teams are prohibited from having more than one player signed to a "Rose Rule" extension, the Celtics can not acquire Davis without also trading away Irving. Due to the "Rose rule," Boston is restricted from trading for Davis until Kyrie Irving signs a new deal or is moved, but Irving is expected to opt out of his contract - and in a new twist, just walked back his pledge to re-sign with the Celtics.

We had LeBron James openly hoping for a trade during the Super Bowl, we had Anthony Davis provide the Pelicans with a "list" of teams he would in theory sign a long-term extension with and the Lakers got more serious with their offers.

There's also the question of whether Davis wants to spend a significant chunk of his career in Boston.

Where will Super Bowl 54 be played in 2020?
The video captures the many characteristics that make Miami - and the greater South Florida area - what it is. Super Bowl LIV will be played on February 2, 2020, in Miami Gardens, Florida at Hard Rock Stadium .

"I would never want my son to play for Boston after what they done to Isaiah Thomas", Anthony Davis Sr.

"This is just my opinion, not Anthony's", he said. "They don't like the Lakers' offer".

The Los Angeles franchise is said to have presented five different offers to the Pelicans - that's how desperate they are to beat off the competition.

And one of the offers from the Lakers is said to include a whopping four players and one future No.1 draft pick, Turner wrote: "Lakers let Demps know one of trade scenarios would include Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Ivica Zubac, No. 1 pick, per source". As the Lakers elevate their offer, including more top young players and even more draft picks into the offer, they'll keep closing the gap. They are not interested in battling the Celtics for Davis in the summer as they reportedly want to concentrate on landing other free agents.
