The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly Anthony Davis' preferred trade destination and, of course, L.A. is highly interested in making a trade for the All-NBA forward.

New Orleans reportedly is not reciprocating that interest - at least right now.

The Pelicans reportedly have "no interest" in facilitating a Davis trade to the Lakers right now, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

"New Orleans has no interest in acquiescing Anthony Davis to the Lakers right now," Woj said on NBA Countdown.

The Pelicans are better off waiting until the summer to make a trade, with Boston being unable to make a move for Davis until after July 1 due to an NBA rule that prevents two players on rookie exception deals being on the same roster (Davis and Irving are both on those deals currently, but won't be after July 1).

So, unless Los Angeles is going to offer New Orleans all of their young players and a ton of picks, an Anthony Davis-Lakers trade isn't happening right now.

Other teams have been mentioned as possible suitors, with the Raptors and Bucks reportedly having interest, though it's unclear if New Orleans is interested in any of their offers.

Stay tuned.
