Anthony Davis explained why he wants to be traded from the New Orleans Pelicans.
Earlier this week there was a report that said if Davis wasn't traded by the league's February 7th deadline, he wouldn't play for the Pelicans at all this season.
There's also been chatter that Davis could wind up on the Los Angeles Lakers or the Boston Celtics. In fact, the whole reason Davis wants to leave New Orleans is to win a championship.
"It’s my time," he told reporters. "I feel like I gave this city, the organization, fans everything I felt like I could. Don't know how long I'm gonna play this game. People's careers are short. I feel like it's my time to move on."
Davis also shot down the rumor that he wouldn't play for New Orleans if he wasn't traded by next week.
"I'm going to remain professional," he said. "I'm under contract until my time ends here. That's what I'll do."
As for where he's going to land ... if it was up to his dad, it won't be Boston.
“I would never want my son to play for Boston after what they done to Isaiah Thomas,” Anthony Davis Sr. told ESPN on Friday, referencing the former Celtics star point guard who was traded for Kyrie Irving amid his recovery from a hip injury. “No loyalty. Guy gives his heart and soul and they traded him. This is just my opinion, not Anthony’s,” he continued. “I’ve just seen things over the years with Boston, and there’s no loyalty.”
