Anthony Davis has informed the New Orleans Pelicans that he is not interested in signing an extension with the team next season according to a report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Early favorites to pursue Davis include the Lakers, Celtics, Knicks, 76ers, Raptors, Nuggets and a handful of other playoff teams. While Golden State has been the prohibitive favorite to win the NBA championship this year at -250 according to the Westgate, it will be interesting to see how the odds shake up as this story progresses. If any team in the playoff mix were to acquire Davis, one of the top players in the league, they would become instant contenders and their odds of winning would increase substantially.
