Interesting topic that is building momentum. And who knows what is going on in Dannys head as well

The end question is....can a lineup of Davis, Horford, Hayward, Irving  (well no Hayward this season) ultimately win you championships?  beat Cavs and GSW right now?

Would you rather try to "go for it now"  or believe that this lineup still may fall short of the GSW and bet on the future instead?  (only 2-3 season away)

Consider also....  how Danny views Smart development/contract demands

And that he doesn't want him to walk away for free by the end of this season.   

To trade him including Brown and future pick (example) for someone of Davis calibre (or at least All star player on a good long term contract)

After what happened this off season,  I will never trust Danny again  ;D

same here. Maybe Danny can leverage the 2018 Lakers pick instead

but you know that if the Pelicans are willing to make this trade , they will want a ton back. 

More Tatum + Brown and Smart as the third piece. Ultimately satisfied with Brown and Tatum

If three months ago, you asked me if Brown and Tatum could bring you back Davis. You make the trade in a heartbeat

Brown and Tatum , bring you back Leonard ...  in a heartbeat

Brown and Tatum (plus Smart) imo could bring you back someone special.... like anybody (if they were available)

What a tremendously difficult decision it would be still

I love me some Jayson Tatum, but let's be serious.  You wouldn't trade him for Anthony Davis?  Come on.

the way Tatum outplays his contract has value itself. And Davis injury history has to be a consideration

Straight up it'd be impossible to say no to.

But it wouldn't be straight up, which is why I'd be hesitant

Tatum is a great player and certainly has the potential to be top 20 kind of player, but AD is a top 15 player so there's that..

First off, lets take a moment to marvel at the fact that Gary Tanguay of all people just said he wouldn't trade someone on this current team for Anthony Davis (someone he ALWAYS loved)  :o

This is coming from a guy who thinks the Greek Freak could be available via trade (lol) and thought the C's should have given up LAL Pick in addition to everything else in the Kyrie trade (when CLE asked for "extra compensation").

I'll admit, I wouldn't trade Tatum for AD, but if it took something along the lines of Smart, Brown, LAL/SAC Pick + filler to acquire Davis, then count me in!

Thing is, I think Smart may end up getting paid a ton elsewhere (4/80M+), and between Brown and Tatum, I'd prefer Tatum to be honest.

But Pelicans are off to a good start and now have Rondo back, so I doubt Davis (or even rental Cousins) is getting dealt at the deadline, or next summer (if Pels have a good season overall)
2018 Mock Trade Deadline (New York Knicks)

Roster: Porzingis, Kanter, Hardaway Jr, Julius Randle, Schroder, Beasley, Alex Abrines, Jarrett Jack, Frank Ntilikina, Lance Thomas, Kyle Singler, Josh Huestis, Ron Baker, Trey Burke, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks

Maybe in one for one type thing I guess and picks .......But no way Smart and Brown are thrown in ....absolutely NOT ......

I d be like Brown and Smart and picks     ......or Tatum and picks ...is the best I do.

Tatum needs to retire a Celtic.

I would trade Tatum for Davis straight up, of course. But I wouldn't trade our potentially good picks and Brown + Tatum for Davis. You trade all that you're giving away your potential for real improvement. So if Davis/Kyrie/Hayward isn't good enough to win a title, we're stuck.

Personally, I'm in favor of keeping Tatum and Brown, barring something extraordinary. There is nothing like the sweet taste of victory with guys raised up on your team vs. a roster full of rent-a-players.

Tanguay will never ever be a GM or a person that GMs listen too.

I'd think if you kept Tatum or Brown then you deal. Giving up both is rough
