Can Boston Land Anthony Davis ?

By A.J.  “Real F.N..Sports Talk”

With popular opinion siding with Anthony Davis going to the L.A. Lakers I propose a different scenario.  Believe it or not there is a avenue leading the Boston Celtics to the prize and it goes like this:

The Four Team Trade:

The Boston Celtics send forward Gordon Hayward and two 1st round picks to the New Orleans Pelicans .

The L.A. Lakers send guard Lonzo Ball to the Chicago Bulls and guard Rajon Rondo to the Boston Celtics.

The Chicago Bulls send forward Jabari Parker to the Boston Celtics.

The New Orleans Pelicans send forward/center Anthony Davis to the Boston Celtics.

When The Smoke Clears:

The Celtics get Anthony Davis,  Jabari Parker and Rajon Rondo.

The Lakers get guard Kyrie Irving

The Pelicans get Gordon Hayward and two number one picks

The Chicago Bulls get guard Lonzo Ball.

In this scenario the Celtics get to audition with Anthony Davis for a year and a half.  The Lakers reunite LaBron and Kyrie with the chance that A.D. joins them down the line.  The Pelicans get a former All Star two number ones plus their own pick, more than likely a lottery pick which could net Duke freshman Zion Williamson.

The Chicago Bulls get a chemistry and tempo changing point guard in Lonzo Ball.  The Lakers and Celtics get a title shot and the Pelicans and Bulls get a shot at Zion Williamson.
