James' remarks about Davis irk National Basketball Association general managers

"I don't really care", Davis told ESPN on Wednesday after New Orleans lost 123-155 to Milwaukee. If Anthony Davis leaves New Orleans, they'll be irrelevant, and that's unfortunate. Commenting on the rumors swirling around New Orleans Pelicans All-Star Anthony Davis teaming up with LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers, Barkley said that Davis going to L.A. would be bad for the National Basketball Association.

Amid all this escalating noise about Davis and his uncertain future - from the LeBron James flattery in his recent ESPN interview to the Friday report that small-market general managers believe his comments qualified as tampering - there's this revelation that should concern Pelicans ownership and management far more than all the rest.

"But give us a list of the rules that you're enforcing, and give us a list of the rules that you're going to ignore".

"Interference is as bad as tampering - maybe worse in this case", one Eastern Conference GM told ESPN. Davis is too good, and there would be too many bidders to play that game with New Orleans. James made "a comment about his interest in playing with another team's player".

Trump charity shuts over allegations of misuse of funds
It must now dismantle itself under a judge's watchful eye, with review and approval from the New York Attorney General's office. The shuttering of Trump's charity comes after The Washington Post documented a series of apparent lapses at the foundation.

With Davis coming into town tomorrow night, James made comments while the Lakers were in NY that it would be "amazing" to play with Davis.

Davis is under contract with the Pelicans for $27.1 million next season and has a player option for 2020-21 worth $28.8 million, meaning the Lakers would have to trade for the five-time All-Star should they want to acquire him before he becomes a free agent. A partnership between LeBron and Davis has been in the minds of the National Basketball Association ever since Davis chose Rich Paul, James' close friend and agent, as his representation.

"When that time comes, of course we will see", Davis told ESPN. "It's hard enough already to hold onto the kind of players we need to try and win with - but (the league) doesn't do anything to help". He's averaging 28.0 points per game for the Pelicans this season, good for third in the National Basketball Association.
