Anthony Davis can become a free agent in 2020 and his future with the New Orleans Pelicans remains in doubt. Davis, however, could be eligible to sign a designated veteran player extension before he's eligible for free agency.
Davis and the Pelicans were on track to easily be a playoff team before DeMarcus Cousins was lost for the season with a torn Achilles.
Davis was asked how he feels when he hears about players like Kevin Garnett who regretted not seeking a trade to improve his title chances earlier in his career.
“It makes you think," said Davis. "I’m not going to lie, it makes you think because you wonder if you’re following on that same path. But then again, you be like, this year could be the year. You don’t know. So you just gotta take it year-by-year and just see. See where the team is going, what direction they want to go to, and just see where their head is.”
Davis also said it's not good enough for the Pelicans to simply reach the playoffs.
