Anthony Davis trade rumors: Knicks ‘weren’t close’ to having assets needed to acquire star

The Knicks were hoping to acquire Anthony Davis from the Pelicans. But, they weren’t able to put together a competitive package, according to a report from the New York Post.

The report adds:

“The Post reported last week the Pelicans didn’t view the Knicks’ young assets as especially attractive in comparison to other Davis suitors, feeling they needed a third team more than any other squad involved.

“According to an NBA source, the Knicks ‘weren’t close’ to having a major package to entice New Orleans on a deal.”

The Knicks’ offer for Davis would have included the No. 3 pick in the 2019 draft and another future selection. New York also was willing to give New Orleans a “choice” of young players from a group that featured Kevin Knox, Mitchell Robinson, Dennis Smith Jr. and Frank Ntilikina, according to the report.

New Orleans, meanwhile, reportedly sent Davis to the Lakers this weekend in exchange for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks.
