"I saw that report, and I think it's great", Lasry said in a recent interview, according to Mitch Lawrence of Sporting News.

Davis wasn't moved by February 7 trade deadline and will have to wait until this summer to find his new home.

Lasry's comments violated league tampering rules that prohibit team representatives from commenting on other team's players, especially in an effort to openly and publicly recruit. "It's a little bit of what we want".

"It doesn't make a difference if you're in Milwaukee, New York or LA".

Davis, whose agent, Rich Paul, informed the Pelicans that Davis would not sign an extension with the team and wants to be traded, had listed Milwaukee as one of his preferred landing spots on his revised listed of teams for which he would like to play. The whole goal is winning.

OR defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt leaving program
Leavitt spent two seasons with the Ducks after coming over from Colorado, but he was not hired by OR head coach Mario Cristobal. When Willie Taggart abruptly left OR for Florida State in December 2017, that opportunity seemed closer than ever for Leavitt.

Milwaukee Bucks owner Marc Lasry is the latest National Basketball Association owner to run afoul of the league for violating tampering rules.

Lasry was probably okay before he mentioned Davis by name.

Ever since reports came out that Anthony Davis wanted out of New Orleans, the National Basketball Association has been on high alert for teams that might be talking to the star or are trying to actively recruit Davis which would be a violation of league rules.

That was enough to breach league tampering rules, as Lasry was hit with a $25,000 fine.

Right now, the expectation is that Davis will be traded sometime this summer.
