Pelicans' Davis in limbo until GM hired

Anthony Davis

Davis was at the center of one of this season's most acrimonious National Basketball Association soap operas after submitting a trade request in January with the Lakers believed to be his preferred destination.

Davis also said that he loved his time playing in New Orleans.

Davis added that he's waiting for the team to fill their vacant general manager position.

And as he entered the arena ahead of the game, Davis may or may not have been sending a message to fans with the shirt he made a decision to wear. I know that it's a possibility that next year I could be here as well. New Orleans, however, failed repeatedly to build anything around him and failed to ever make it past the first round of the playoffs since drafting Davis in 2012.

When the Pelicans opted not to ship off Davis at the trade deadline, the superstar desired to return to the court, despite several powerful people inside the organization protesting it.

Initially, it was believed that Davis did not have any interest in a move up the east coast, and would not re-sign in Boston next year - when he is due a new contract. Davis, speaking for himself but also perhaps the entire world, said "I have no idea what's going on over there".

The six-time All-Star said he is eager to see whom the Pelicans hire as GM and to meet with that person. "I just put it on".

Davis, who said he didn't know who hung the shirt for him to wear, said he was a big Looney Tunes fan growing up, with "That's all Folks" being Porky Pig's sign-off for the cartoon. "Well, I heard some stuff actually".

"I'll leave it at that", Gentry said. "It's something I'll go back and look back and reflect on and if it has, I'll say to myself and the people around and if something happens again, see where we can do better and go from there". "I think he's a very good kid".
