Kyrie Irving said he’d re-sign with the Celtics next summer.

So, attention immediately shifts to Boston’s next star pursuit – longtime Celtics target Anthony Davis, whose future with the Pelicans is uncertain. And maybe Irving will help lure Davis.

Jay King of The Athletic:

The two have already spoken about what it would be like to play together in Boston, according to a league source.
Here’s the big question: Did Davis or Irving initiate the conversation? Davis doing so would be much more meaningful. Irving recruiting would be interesting but not terribly significant. Davis inquiring about options outside New Orleans would be a huge revelation.

Either way, this is limited. Stars talking about teaming up far more often than they actually do.

It’s hard to see the Celtics ever creating enough cap room to sign Davis outright. So, acquiring him would likely require a trade, which means the Pelicans being involved and Davis’ wishes mattering only so much.

If he wants to go to Boston and stay long-term there, the Celtics would be incentivized to offer more than other suitors and make it worth New Orleans’ while. Boston has the assets to do that. But it still wouldn’t be completely up to Davis.

For now, Davis is locked up for two more seasons, and the Pelicans have no intention of trading him. He’ll be eligible to sign a super-max extension next offseason.

But if Davis eventually wants out – whether it be a trade while still under his current contract or a sign-and-trade in 2020 – Boston remains the team to watch.

Logical guy to move is Al or Hayward plus picks.

AD is the next logical target for Ainge to pursue. But until Davis requests a trade everything is just rumors.

And Kyrie was going to hook up with Jimmy Butler in NY.
