Celtics Refusing to Dangle Jayson Tatum in Anthony Davis Trade Talks

NBA       Celtics rumors Kyrie Irving isn’t reuniting with Le Bron James
       
       	        By Vincent Frank

Last week, Davis' agent, Rich Paul, informed the Pelicans that his client would not be signing a long-term deal with the team and that he would like to be traded, preferably by the February 7 deadline.

As the Celtics try to get the Pelicans to wait until the offseason to trade All-Star Anthony Davis, Boston has "refused to directly dangle Jayson Tatum" in discussions of a potential trade, sources told Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix. Although the Celtics can't be positive on Irving's forthcoming decision in July, they do remain confident he'll choose to stay in Boston, sources said.

The Celtics are unable to trade for Davis this season because Kyrie Irving and Davis are both under rookie contract extensions, and you can not have two players like that on your roster. Davis is as well and National Basketball Association rules only allow one player with that type of contract on a team at a time.

Rumor has it that Davis does not want to sign a long-term deal with the Celtics, but that will not stop Boston from pursuing a trade for him this summer, and the Pelicans seem to prefer the Celtics' assets to anyone else's. Teams positioned themselves with flexibility for this summer's stacked free-agent class. As reported here again last Friday, the club took a similar stance in its pursuit of Paul George from in during the 2016-17 season.

Emery urges Arsenal to improve away form amid criticism
Arsenal are now in sixth position on the Premier League table following their 3-1 defeat against Manchester City over the weekend.

This would be an interesting move because Kanter is a quality player.

Davis, 25, is averaging 29.3 points, 13.3 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game.

The NBA trade deadline for this season is February 7 at 3 p.m. ET.

Whatever the case, it doesn't seem like Davis is willing to sign any extensions.
