There was no sign of Davis, who is sidelined with a injured left index finger, on the big screen in a video before a 105-99 home loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.
Davis has missed the Pelicans' last five games with a finger injury. Irving is a factor because of what's known as the Rose Rule, which says National Basketball Association teams can not trade for more than one player who has signed an extension.
The sources said the Pelicans would play Ball 35 minutes a night and make sure he "would fit" in with New Orleans so he could become a star.
Los Angeles Lakers rumors have really taken off in recent days.
The NBA fined Davis $50,000 on Tuesday for violating a rule prohibiting players or their representatives from making public trade demands.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com, Golden State All-Star Klay Thompson's "attention will be on the Lakers" in the offseason if Davis is there and if the Warriors don't offer him a max contract this summer.
Gentry said he wasn't aware of the situation relating to the video, or the fact Davis - linked with the Lakers - was not on the bench in the final quarter.
China and United States schedule more trade talks before March deadline
But compelling China to reform its trade policies and treatment of foreign companies will be hard . Chinese officials deny that their policies coerce technology transfers.
Below, we break down what three logical packages for Davis could look like if a deal does end up going down between the Lakers and Pelicans.
If Davis does want to end up a Laker playing alongside LeBron James, odds are, New Orleans is going to covet nearly the entirety of Los Angeles' young core in exchange for its MVP-caliber center.
The NBA trade deadline comes on February 7, and with it comes chaos. "If Boston feels it is necessary to hold off any Lakers coup, they can tell the Pelicans they will likely include Tatum in Davis trade talks in July".
But their hands are tied until the trade deadline as they can not have two players on designated contracts and at the moment Kyrie Irving is on one.
Lakers want to get deal done and have no plans on trying to outbid Celtics during the summer because Lakers will then pursue other free agents besides AD.
