NBA Rumors: Celtics Still Plan To Pair Anthony Davis, Kyrie Irving

Anthony Davis and Kyrie Irving, possible future teammates

The Boston Celtics, per Frank Isola of The Athletic, are still hoping to swing a trade for Anthony Davis, and subsequently re-signing Kyrie Irving.

This is despite Davis’ reported unwillingness to sign long-term in Boston, as well as Irving’s terrible performance in the the team’s second-round playoff series loss to Milwaukee.

No matter, Isola quoted sources as saying that Celtics general manager Danny Ainge “wants to re-sign Irving and believes he will do just that if the Celtics acquire Davis.”

Davis declared prior to this past season’s trade deadline that he would not be re-signing with his current team, the New Orleans Pelicans, and was requesting a trade. Several teams, most notably the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics, were reportedly in talks with the Pelicans about a Davis deal, but multiple reports at the time stated that Davis did not want to go to Boston and was not interested in re-signing there.
