Anthony Davis confirmed that he wants to remain in New Orleans and believes the Pelicans can make a playoff run in 2017-18.
Davis acknowledged that he had heard trade rumors about potentially getting shipped to Boston, but has ignored them since getting confirmation that the rumors were unfounded. "I understand it's a business, but if I don't hear anything from [GM Dell Demps] or my agent, I don't pay attention to it," said Davis. He also added that he thinks the Pels have enough talent to make some noise this season. "We definitely believe we have enough pieces on paper to make the playoffs. Not just make it, but actually make a run in the playoffs."
