Tick tock, tick tock. The Pelicans know time is running out for teams to acquire All-Star Anthony Davis as the NBA trade deadline is at 2pm CT. 

The LA Lakers have shown interest in acquiring the 25 year-old, but disengaged in trade talks with New Orleans since they were reportedly frustrated with the Pels outrageous demands. ESPN senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted earlier today that there has been nothing new going on between the 2 sides.

If Davis remains with the Pelicans, the next big question is will he play again for New Orleans this year?  AD has recovered from a finger injury, but has been held out of the last 2 games. The Pels may opt to sit him for the reminder of this season to not risk their asset from sustaining an injury before he can be dealt in the summer.
