Fine as­sessed by the NBA on Pel­i­cans su­per­star An­thony Davis “for vi­o­lat­ing a col­lec­tively-bar­gained rule pro­hibit­ing play­ers or their rep­re­sen­ta­tives from mak­ing pub­lic trade de­mands.” Davis’ agent, Rich Paul, told ESPN this week that his client has no plans to sign an ex­ten­sion with New Or­leans and he wants to be traded. The NBA said the state­ments made by Paul were “an in­ten­tional ef­fort to un­der­mine the con­trac­tual re­la­tion­ship be­tween Davis and the Pel­i­cans.” The 25-year-old can be­come a free agent in the sum­mer of 2020.
