If that wasn't already enough, Davis was then asked about that shirt the following day and he gave the dumbest excuse ever as he explained why he has no control over what he wears. "One lost his job and the other one resigned from his job", Gentry said Tuesday, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell, referring to ex-Pelicans general manager Dell Demps and now-former Los Angeles Lakers president Magic Johnson.
Backlash was, of course, swift, as folks online bemoaned Davis' pettiness. "You know me to just tell the truth". T-shirt that seemed to wrap things up for him in New Orleans. Additionally, Davis talked about how it was challenging to see his minutes reduced following the trade request and called it the "toughest part" of the final months of the season.
"Seeing what happens", Davis said.
Michael Avenatti Indicted For Allegedly Stealing Paraplegic Client's Settlement Money
According to the indictment, Avenatti embezzled money from five of his clients and shuffled the money to cover up the theft. Two years after the settlement was reached, Avenatti allegedly helped Johnson find a real estate agent to buy a house.
Gentry said the fallout from the Davis trade discussions for the both the Lakers and the Pelicans was the most "toxic" situation he's seen in 31 years in the league. "Seeing who the Pelicans make their GM and having a conversation with that person about the future".
Considered by many to be one of the NBA's top talents, Davis is keen to ensure that he is able to secure a move in the summer, but admitted that he could end up being forced to wait another year until he is a free agent. "But it's something that I'll go back and look at and reflect on". "Heard some stuff about Space Jam, I heard some stuff about [how] this is a shot at the Pelicans, 'Oh, this is his last game.' I heard it all, but it doesn't matter to me".
As he said earlier this season, Davis reiterated that he doesn't have any regrets about how everything played out with his request.
