Gentry was then asked whether he is authorized to make the decision as to when Davis will play.
As Woj tweeted Monday, the Pelicans want a player with an All-NBA ceiling in return for their own All-NBA mainstay.
The Lakers are now offering the Pelicans a package that includes forwards Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma, guard Lonzo Ball and two first-round picks, as well as a willingness to absorb the remaining $12.7 million on Solomon Hill's contract in the 2019-20 season, league sources told ESPN. That would be Danny Ainge and the Celtics, who continue to tell the Pelicans to wait for the summer when they can enter the mix and give them anything and everything they want for Davis. I'm going to lay out a few trade scenarios for you, while also highlighting the difficulties of making each move.
The perception could make other teams - say, the Knicks - step up their efforts to acquire the All-NBA star. Irving, 26, previously said he planned to re-sign with the Celtics in the summer but has recently wavered in public on that promise.

However, there are more than 3,000 counties nationally and none of the others can claim this distinction. Last week, we shared that Disney would have several TV spots for the 2019 Super Bowl .
Sports Illustrated's Rohan Nadkarni made a compelling case for why the Nets should offer a deal for Davis, and why the Pelicans would be wise to listen.
"I've had teammates every year be a part of trade deadline discussions and things of that nature and we've always figured out to just shield that away and play the game". The league's landscape is certainly feeling the tremors of the campaign by Paul and Davis. Does Davis think the Pelicans should accept L.A.'s proposal? Zion Williamson is the unanimous first pick and has been for months, and he has the makings of a franchise player who would bring tremendous energy wherever he goes.
The New Orleans Pelicans can not allow themselves to get bullied into taking a deal early that doesn't net them the proper return. That means they are not allowed to acquire more salary than they send out. The Pelicans believe that the Lakers' bid at the trade deadline will still be available to them in the offseason, sources said.
Davis informed the Pelicans that he wouldn't sign a five-year, $239 million supermax contract this summer.
