"A source with intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the National Basketball Association told Get More Sports that Davis is considering five teams in the near and distant future: The Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, New Orleans Pelicans, New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers", Sheridan wrote.

There should be more on this front as the season rolls along that may pick up at some point over next offseason as he will be heading into the fourth year of his contract that should certainly bring up questions concerning his long-term future in New Orleans.

The Celtics head back to Boston for a Friday night showdown with the Cleveland Cavaliers. There was a sense of urgency right from tip-off and Boston jumped out to a 15-point lead in the opening frame. "And when he's playing with me, we play pretty well together". If he is still with the Pelicans and they haven't made major moves to contend for a championship, he may decide to take his talents to a bigger market and a better team.

The Celtics as a whole played pretty well on Monday night.

"At winning time like that, I have the confidence in my teammates and confidence in my coaching staff to make the right plays and seek out the mismatches that we want", Irving added. Brown's decline is the most noticeable, going from a slightly positive offensive player to one of the worst in the league by RPM's estimation. "We had different guys diving on the floor and doing multiple things on the defensive end".

"I feel like the season is kind of like a rollercoaster", guard Jrue Holiday said. 'The Celtics, at some point, if you want to get a Kawhi Leonard or in this vehicle Anthony Davis you can't just protect your five-man core.

"I give Markieff a lot of credit", Brooks told the Wizards team website. It is far from where Boston imagined where they would be prior to the campaign with them being favourites for the Eastern Conference. "Last year, when they came in, when they played the Celtics, they knew they were in for a fight".

"We don't impose our fear and will on other teams", [Marcus] Smart said. I don't even know what to say at this point.

In an interview with Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, Stevens spoke on how there is no individual player holding the team back, but it is that the entire team is no clicking.
