The Lakers tried to acquire Davis before this season's February 7 trade deadline, but the Pelicans declined to move him, opting instead to wait until the offseason, when more will be known about draft slots and more teams can make concrete offers. Among the Pelicans' remaining 23 games, there are 18 matchups vs. opponents now in playoff contention, including three contests against the West's current 10th-place team, the Los Angeles Lakers (28-29). It was Paul who announced Davis' trade request on January 28 through ESPN. The veteran guard entered the All-Star break playing 36.3 minutes per game, which ranked No. 3 in the entire league, trailing only James Harden and Bradley Beal. According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, there's a belief that acting general manager Danny Ferry could approach the league this week about rethinking their stance of forcing Davis to suit up on a nightly basis.
New Orleans' ability to play spoiler begins immediately this weekend, with a back-to-back at IN (38-20, third IN East) and vs. the Lakers.
Davis is now averaging 36 minutes per game on the season.
