Celtics back in the mix? AD says so

Before the recent trade deadline, Anthony Davis’ father said he didn’t want his son to play for the Boston Celtics. He alleged that the team was no loyal after trading Isaiah Thomas to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Celtics used Thomas as a chip to acquire Kyrie Irving.

“Boston … I would never want my son to play for Boston after what they done to Isaiah Thomas … No LOYALTY … guy gives his heart and soul and they traded him … anyone can print that,” Anthony Davis Sr. said in an alleged text message to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

Now, just days later after the trade deadline has passed with no trade, Anthony Davis now says the Celtics are on his list of teams he would play for.

“They are on my list,” Davis said. 

Apparently, now, every team in the Association is on Davis’ list. However, the only team not on his list of re-signing with is the Pelicans. 

“I’m just keeping it real, to be honest,” Davis said with a smile, when asked why he was being so forthright about his future, according to ESPN. “I knew that’s all you guys wanted to talk about. I just stated how I feel, stated my intentions, and we’ll go on from there.”

The 25-year-old Chicago, Illinois native — who was the No. 1 overall pick by the New Orleans Hornets in the 2012 NBA Draft — has made 45 starts for the team this season. He is averaging 28.1 points, 12.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.6 steals, and 2.5 blocks per game in 36 minutes per game.
