The Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks are on the short list of teams New Orleans Pelicans center Anthony Davis wants to play for, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Sharania noted that Davis submitted a list of four teams in February, with the Los Angeles Clippers and Brooklyn Nets also making it onto that one. However, he reports Davis has narrowed his focus even more this week, with the Lakers and Knicks being at the top of the list.

The Lakers, however, would have to overcome quite the obstacle to land Davis. With that in mind, one wonders if the Knicks have the upper hand, barring an intervention from The King.
