David Griffin publicly said he believes Anthony Davis is open to remaining with the New Orleans Pelicans.

"We have a long successful history with Klutch Sports," said Griffin. "Rich Paul and I have spoke about Anthony. We are both excited about what we could potentially build here."

Griffin is taking over the front office of the Pelicans following a trade request from Davis.

Griffin also said he would prefer to establish whether Davis is all-in or all-out on being with the Pelicans.
