What Is Likely To Happen?
The 23 year old Davis is reportedly frustrated at losing to the Milwaukee Bucks despite scoring 35 points personally. Experts have earlier hinted at possibilities of the Spurs trading LaMarcus Aldridge for Davis. Rumors state that Aldridge might attain superstar status with the Pelicans. On the other hand, Davis will also enjoy his potential maximization with the Spurs.

NBA Trade Rumors have still hinted that Davis wants to leave the Pelicans. A move to the Indiana Pacers is hinted in exchange for Thaddeus Young and first 2019 first round picks.
CBS Sports has also reported that the Spurs are exploring a possible trade for LaMarcus Aldridge. The Spurs are well aware that the 31 year old Aldridge will give them good value now. If the deal is delayed, they might not get as good a valuation as the present. This may drive them to exchange him for the younger and fitter Anthony Davis.
