With the New Orleans Pelicans still winless to start the 2016-2017 NBA season, latest NBA trade rumors have spread that Anthony Davis is getting frustrated and expressed his desire for a trade. The big man wants to be traded to the San Antonio Spurs and with the Tim Duncan era ending, the Spurs could really need a young big man with star potential.
Davis has been breaking records in his career and in this season, he has yet broken another record by scoring the most points in the first two games for a player in NBA history. According to Fox Sports, Davis has scored 95 points in his first two games which surpassed Michael Jordan's record of 91.
But despite Davis' outstanding performances, the Pelicans are having a rough start this season which explains the big man's inclusion in the latest NBA trade rumors. According to ESPN, Davis expressed his frustration after their 117-113 defeat from the Milwaukee Bucks, " Definitely frustrating," he said, "We can't get a win. It's frustrating."
In a report by Sportsrageous, the Spurs are looking to trade LaMarcus Aldrige for Anthony Davis. The Spurs acquired Aldrige in his free agency to kickstart their offense, but with Kawhi Leonard rising as a superstar, Aldrige is now just a second option.
It would be beneficial for both teams as Davis could maximize his potential with coach Gregg Popovich's system and Aldrige would get the superstar treatment that he deserves with the Pelicans. It's a win-win situation for both so everything might play out well for these two teams.
These latest NBA trade rumors are just speculations but if the two teams pushed through, it would be a legal transaction as the ESPN NBA trade machine confirms it. This would definitely be another blockbuster trade as both of these players are the best power forwards in the league as of the moment.
