Anthony Davis Opens Up NBA Trade List: Boston Celtics & "All 29 Other Teams" Can Get It
Anthony Davis spent a good amount of his mandatory All-Star Game press conference talking about the trade requested he posted through his agent Rich Paul at the end of January. From what we know of Anthony Davis' character, nothing about his actions to date gives off the illusion that he's about ready to flip the table.

In fact, AD is known to be a fairly balanced character, allowing him to leverage his competitive nature into something of a positive. Much of the speculation concerning Anthony Davis's future is based around an assumption that his trade list only contains a maximum of three acceptable NBA destinations. Well as it turns out, Anthony Davis reported to Charlotte, North Carolina ready to set the record straight. When asked if the Boston Celtics figured among the teams on his NBA short-list, Davis answered, "They are on my list," without a single moment's hesitation.
"I'm just keeping it real, to be honest," Davis continued with a big grin on his face when a member of the press asked him about his willingness to comment any further (on future provisions). "I knew that's all you guys wanted to talk about. I just stated how I feel, stated my intentions, and we'll go on from there."
With Anthony Davis declaring open season on his services, ahead of the 2019 All-Star Game, the onus will be on him to stay limber and avoid injury, long enough for the Pelicans to find a trade partner to their liking. "All 29 other teams are on my list," Davis stated with a furrowed brow to match his feigned annoyance over the Free-Agent gossip. "I don’t have a preferred destination. Like I said, I just want to win. It could be a big market, small market. I don’t care. I want to win." AD plans to suit up for Team LeBron in spite of the fact he injured his shoulder during the Pelicans win over OKC Thursday night.
