The Los Angeles Lakers may need to delay the execution of the Anthony Davis trade with the New Orleans Pelicans in order to continue their wait for Kawhi Leonard's decision.

The Pelicans, Atlanta Hawks and Washington Wizards will need to cooperate with the Lakers, which league sources tell Bobby Marks they're prepared to do.

The deal was based on the Lakers using the $32 million in cap space created on a max free agent, such as Leonard or on other players available.

The Lakers can currently offer Leonard a four-year, $138 million deal, whereas they would only be able to offer a four-year, $127 million deal once the Davis trade is executed.
