With the New Orleans Pelicans poised to blow this whole thing up and push ahead with Zion Williamson, Anthony Davis has only reinforced his desire to leave The Big Easy for a team more ready to win now.

While the Boston Celtics have the most assets to give up for The Brow, Davis hasn't listed Boston as a place he would sign a long-term contract with. However, it's always seemed as if he could he shipping up to Boston if Jayson Tatum is included in a potential trade, and one NBA source reiterated as such on Friday.

This would certainly be a seismic development, as the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets, and Los Angeles Lakers were considered the three big players in the Davis sweepstakes, and teams he'd willing to lock into long term. Boston would have to be very confident in their future outlook if they ever sacrificed Tatum in a deal like this.

While Kyrie Irving might be on his way out, a team with Brad Stevens as a head coach and Davis as their star would make some noise in the east with or without Tatum.

While this trade certainly makes logical sense, the Celtics parting with a player they treasure to the degree they do with Tatum, even for a player like Anthony Davis, seems unlikely. Than again, Kawhi Leonard in Toronto and DeMar DeRozan in San Antonio seemed unlikely a year ago, and here we are.
