The regular season finale for the New Orleans Pelicans is tonight against the Golden State Warriors. It will likely be the last game for Anthony Davis in a Pelicans uniform.
Davis has one year remaining on his contract, but already tried to force a trade before the deadline in February. He is expected to be dealt at some point this summer as New Orleans looks to rebuild.
If there was any doubt that Davis is leaving town, he seemed to erase it with his t-shirt choice heading to the arena tonight. The message it sends appears to need no translation.
“That’s all folks!” the shirt reads in the classic font from “Looney Tunes.”

Davis has developed into a bonafide star in his seven seasons with the Pelicans. He’s made six All-Star game appearances and been an All-NBA performer three times.
However, the Pels have made the playoffs only twice, so wherever Davis heads next, you can bet he wants to go to a contender.
The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics are the likely favorites to land him this summer, with the New York Knicks also a potential fit if the team lands the No. 1 pick in the draft and signs a marquee free agent or too.
