The NBA trade deadline is a little more than one week away. For now, Anthony Davis is still a member of the New Orleans Pelicans.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news early Monday that Davis has asked the Pelicans for a trade. He informed the team he won't be signing an extension with them this summer, and prefers to play somewhere he can contend for championships.

A bona fide superstar who is only 25 years old, Davis is a hot commodity on the trade market. The Lakers and Knicks were reportedly already considering offers for the versatile big man as of yesterday, and others seem to be on the way.

Per Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors are also planning on getting involved in the Davis sweepstakes.

New Orleans has options right now. The Lakers, Knicks, Bucks, and Raptors are expected to make trade offers for Davis ahead of the deadline, according to multiple front-office sources. To some degree, every team will at least consider making an offer.

A trade package from Milwaukee would presumably start with Khris Middleton and Thon Maker, and perhaps Malcolm Brogdon as well. As for Toronto, Pascal Siakam and O.G. Anunoby are their most attractive trade chips.

If those two teams are serious about acquiring Davis, it is likely because they think this is the year to strike while the iron is hot in the Eastern Conference.

Stay tuned.
