The Toronto Raptors are already one of the teams waiting to make a commercial offer for the New Orleans Pelicans superstar, Anthony Davis.
Now they are counted among betting favorites to acquire the five star stars all at the beginning of the next season, according to the latest OddsShark update. Toronto and the Los Angeles Lakers feel tied per second on the +300, finishing only with the Boston Celtics at +150.
If the Pelícanos move Davis for the next term on February 7, the Celtics would not be players in the draw unless Kyrie Irving moves too. Davis and Irving signed their contract extensions under the "Rose Rule", and a team can not trade with two players.
New Orleans has indicated that it is not in a hurry to trade with Davis, so a summer overproduction is a very real possibility.
The Raptors could gather a strong package for 25-year-olds, probably led by the candidate of the best improved player Pascal Siakam. OG Anunoby and Delon Wright are two other young pieces that could be of interest to pelicans, as well as a subsequent selection of two or two. It should also include a veteran in a considerable contract like Jonas Valanciunas or Serge Ibaka to face wages.
Toronto made it clear that everything was going on in a championship with the acquisition of Kawhi Leonard last season. Now it's an opportunity for the Raptors to fold the mindset and try to make a move that would turn them into a real gamer.
The Lakers have been linked to Davis apparently forever, and it is believed that the Kentucky University product prefers Los Angeles as a definite destination, now or when it reaches a free agency in 2020. Davis and LeBron James are represented by The same agent, and the Lakers have enough young talent to attract hypotheses in New Orleans in an agreement.
When the trade limit date is closer, the hot stove will only be collected from here. Stay alert
