Anthony Davis is wanted by Golden State Warriors, according to ESPN’s Zach Lowe.

Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics have been long linked with a move for the MVP-calibre power forward.
But sources have apparently told Lowe that the reigning champions Warriors are also mulling over a scoop for the Pelicans star.
However, there is a major problem in that the Warriors can ill-afford to send any of their leading men as part of a trade for Davis.
“The Warriors have been publicly linked to Davis before and would surely be interested, sources say,” Lowe wrote.
“But it’s hard to find a realistic path ahead of next season. They aren’t trading [Steph] Curry or [Kevin] Durant for him; Durant is a free agent anyway.
“Draymond Green probably isn’t enticing enough as a centerpiece considering what little else the Warriors have in draft picks and young players.
“Klay Thompson is a free agent too, and it seems unlikely he would agree to a sign-and-trade sending him to New Orleans.”
LeBron James could take a number of weeks to return to action after picking up a groin injury, according to Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry.
Curry has only recently returned to full fitness after spending almost a month out injured with the same problem and he offered advice to his cross-state rival.
“You got to take those first four or five days, that was what my experience was, to make sure you don’t do any more damage,” Curry told The Undefeated.
“You have to let the healing process start. That is one you can’t really rush. That is how I felt because it was such a delicate area.”
Kevin Durant could be tempted into a move to New York Knicks, according to NBA pundit Shannon Sharpe.
Durant is in the last year of his Golden State Warriors contract and can walk away as a free agent next summer.
“Warriors, I would be a little concerned,” Sharpe told the Undisputed.
“It sounds like to me, and KD knows this, he is never going to get the credit he deserves winning Championships there.
“If he goes to the Knicks and wins one Championship it would be worth more than the three [with the Warriors] if he was to win one this year.”
