Laker Fans have been clamoring for the chance to get Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers. But that doesn’t seem to be even on the mind of New Orleans Pelicans owner Gayle Benson. According to Sports Illustrated:
(SI) – New Orleans Pelicans owner Gayle Benson is extremely opposed to trading Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers, ESPN’s Jackie MacMullan reported on Friday.
According to MacMullan, the Pelicans’ new lead executive would report directly to Benson, who fired general manager Dell Demps in February over his handling of Davis. Benson appears unwilling to send Davis to his preferred destination.
“We have been told, I think, through channels – most of us have heard this same scuttlebutt – that Gayle Benson has basically told him, ‘To the Lakers, over my dead body,’” MacMullan said.
Well I guess that might mean she doesn’t want to trade him to the Lakers. Here’s Gayle Benson for reference:
Does she seem reasonable? Who knows. But if Lakers fan want to see this…
They first must find a way to get rid of this..
