Pelicans interim GM: NBA rules compel club to play Davis | AP sports


A 128-115 loss to the Anthony Davis-less New Orleans Pelicans left LeBron James questioning whether his Los Angeles Lakers teammates have the experience to grasp the challenge at hand and help the franchise qualify for the playoffs for the first time in six years.

He recorded 15 points, eight rebounds and four assists the Pelicans' 126-111 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Friday.

Anthony Davis will be on the floor as the New Orleans Pelicans return from the All Star break, but team officials wouldn't commit to anything beyond that. The Pelicans, who failed to reach agreement with those teams interested in signing the star forward before the deadline of February 7, plan to reduce his time on the court.

All ABA references aside, Gentry - who first started coaching in the National Basketball Association as an assistant 30 years ago - rejected the premise that Saturday's matchup with the Lakers, whose failed pursuit of Davis played out in the headlines for weeks leading up to the trade deadline, was anything special.

"We had no sense of urgency", Kuzma said. After the change, there were discussions between Davis and the team about altering the plan for him to continue playing every game, sources said.

"We've just got to play better in a next game in Memphis". It's how you play the game, prepare for the game.

"I just think we got to be consistent", he said.

The Pels also made sure to include a photo of Cheick Diallo blocking Lakers forward Brandon Ingram, who was one of several players L.A. reportedly tried to offer them for Davis. So I'm not saying that's what we are as a whole.

'If you're looking along the lines of having any significance because we're playing the Lakers, that had nothing to do with it, ' New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said before the game.

When asked if it was too late for the Lakers to build some consistency, LeBron worriedly said that he didn't quite know. We sit down, talk to him about it.
