The Knicks are expected to be "aggressive" in pursuing Pelicans' Anthony Davis in a trade, but could they really pull off landing the 25-year-old All-Star.
According to odds from BetOnline, the Knicks actually have a decent shot at landing the Pelicans center in 2019.
The Knicks are slated at 11/2 odds to acquire Davis while the Lakers are the favorites at 5/4. The Celtics, which cannot trade for Davis until July 1 due to the "Rose Rule," are 3/1 odds that he will be playing for them next season.

If the Knicks were to package a deal for Davis it would likely need to include their unprotected first round draft, per Brian Windhorst of ESPN.
Kristaps Porzingis has also been floated around as a piece in a potential deal, but that would need to be contingent on the restricted free agent re-signing with the Pelicans this summer, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
