Pelicans' Griffin says no 'shot clock' on any Davis deal

METAIRIE, La. (AP) Pelicans basketball operations chief David Griffin said Tuesday that the timing of next week's NBA draft won't necessarily raise urgency to deal away disgruntled six-time All-Star Anthony Davis.

"I'm open-minded," Griffin said while introducing new front office hire Swin Cash on a conference call with reporters. "If things devolve in such a way that it's time for us to make a decision relative to Anthony Davis or any other part of the organization, we will. But we're not in a hurry to do anything and we don't feel there is a time sensitivity to anything that we're talking about - and that includes AD's desire to stay or not stay. That's not something there's a shot clock on."

The Pelicans have the first overall pick in the June 20 NBA draft, when they are expected to select consensus top prospect Zion Williamson of Duke. The Pelicans could acquire additional high draft picks by dealing Davis by draft night, but also could choose to wait and trade Davis for established NBA talent.
