David Griffin Believes Anthony Davis Can Stay With Pelicans
Off season couldn’t come any sooner.
Rumors swirled all over the NBA as soon as Anthony Davis asked the New Orleans Pelicans’ front office to be traded. Was it the Lakers? Celtics? No one really knows what happened there.
Newly hired executive David Griffin believes that AD and the Pelicans can still stay together next season.
“We have a long successful history with Klutch Sports,” Griffin told reporters. “Rich Paul and I have spoke about Anthony. We are both excited about what we could potentially build here. Rich Paul and I were part of succeeding. They will understand when I say this, ‘You are either all the way or all the way out.'”
Mind you, LeBron James is also a Klutch Sports member and Griffin was once an executive with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Davis and the Pelicans have only won one playoff series and making it to the playoffs twice in Davis’ seven seasons with the organization.
