Sad day for New Orleans fans! Anthony Davis is not signing on for an extension with the Pelicans.
Anthony Davis’ agent, Rich Paul, told the Associated Press Monday he wants to be traded to a championship-contending team and refuses to sign an extension with New Orleans.
“Anthony wants to be traded to a team that allows him the chance to win consistently and compete for a championship,” Paul said.
The five-time All-Star has been averaging well this season with 29.3 points and 13.3 rebounds per game. These are top-five marks in the league and may also be the reason Lebron James, who is also represented by Paul, attempted to recruit Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers. James’ comments caused criticism from some parts of the NBA and got him a tampering warning from the League office. James didn’t think anything of his comments suggesting it makes sense for him to want to play with elite players.
As always, Twitter dropped off a bomb of memes about the situation. Click the arrow above and check out some of the funniest tweets:
