The New York Knicks made overtures for Anthony Davis to join them as a free agent in 2020, according to a source that spoke with Howard Beck of Bleacher Report.

The Knicks were the other team, along with the Los Angeles Lakers, that Davis reportedly preferred a trade to. The Pelicans weren't particularly interested in the assets the Knicks could make available to Davis.

Davis is widely expected to re-sign with the Lakers in 2020.
