Pelicans Anthony Davis fined $50K for public trade demand by agent

New Orleans Pelicans star, Anthony Davis has been fined $50,000 by the NBA after his agent, Rich Paul, on Monday that his client "wants to be traded to a team that allows him a chance to win consistently and competes for a championship." 

Davis won't sign an extension this summer and wants a trade. Multiple league sources expect the agent and star to soon deliver word throughout the league that Davis' preferred destination is the Los Angeles Lakers, and he'll become a rental player until 2020 with a trade anywhere else. 

The $50,000 represents the most Davis can be fined without the player filing a grievance. He is making $25,434,263 this season. The Pelicans plan to listen to offers on Davis but won't make a deal before next Thursday's NBA trade deadline unless they're offered an overwhelming package for the franchise's star, league sources told Wojnarowski.

Without Anthony Davis, Okafor helps Pelicans beat Rockets

Jahlil Okafor scored 27 points and the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans overcame a big early deficit to beat the Houston Rockets 121-116 on Tuesday night in their first game since Anthony Davis‘ agent said the five-time All-Star wanted to be traded. New Orleans led by six before using an 8-2 run to make it 114-102 with 3 1/2 minutes left. Holiday had six points for the Pelicans in that span, and Houston missed seven straight shots. Davis’ agent also said the star big man won’t sign an extension with the team, a move that earned Davis a $50,000 fine because the league office said he violated a collectively bargained rule prohibiting players or their representatives from making public trade demands. Davis chatted with teammates while watching the game from the end of the bench.
