Four teams have already inquired about New Orleans Pelicans talisman Anthony Davis, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. However, it was considered "highly unlikely" that Davis would change his mind about wanting to be traded.

In addition to looking for an All-Star caliber player, Griffin also wants players and picks that would become assets for the Pelicans as they look to move forward with the no. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.

"So far, Los Angeles and NY teams -- the Clippers and Lakers, Knicks and Nets - have been among front offices inquiring with New Orleans", Wojnarowski said.

Griffin hasn't sounded convinced that a single team will be able to fulfill what he is seeking for Davis and is working to find multi-team scenarios.

The NBA Offseason is just days away and the NBA trade rumors are heating up when it comes to New Orleans Pelicans' superstar Anthony Davis. Will Danny Ainge pull the trigger on a trade for Anthony Davis?

Griffin is pursuing a combination of assets that include an All-Star player, a young player with All-Star potential and two first-round picks, league sources said. The Lakers own the fourth overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. This report nearly certainly means potential suitors will have to include other teams in order to meet these considerable and appropriate demands in a Davis deal. It's tough to peg who the Bulls could get back in a three-team deal with those involved, but players like Brooklyn's Spencer Dinwiddie or New York's Kevin Knox could be on the table for the No. 7 pick.

Before that, Griffin reiterated his belief that he can convince Davis to stay put. Like the possible Lakers offer, this is another very, very nice deal for the New Orleans Pelicans. He holds a player option that will allow him to reach unrestricted free agency in the summer of 2020.

This trade scenario leans heavily on Griffin's opinion of this year's draft class, but it checks nearly all the boxes; the hope would be that the quality of the picks offsets the lack of a current All-Star. Here are the Lakers' current assets ranked five through one. The Suns, meanwhile, will use their pick to grease the wheels of the transaction, and grab a point guard, a position of need and what they're reportedly trying to do with the pick.
