That offer reportedly included Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and Ivica Zubac, as well as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
According to Shams Charania, the National Basketball Association sensation is willing to sign longterm deals with the Lakers, Bucks, Clippers and Knicks. On the list of four teams, that's probably the best deal that anyone is going to offer. You give a list of four teams, each of them plausible as a possible destination that Davis might consider, but none (other than the Lakers) having the assets needed to make a deal happen. The Celtics also believe that a deal for Davis will help solidify his confidence in re-signing with the organization, sources said. The Pelicans could wait until the draft lottery in May, when they'll have a better idea of when and how Boston's protected picks in deals with Philadelphia, Memphis and the Clippers could be conveyed in a deal.
This gives another big market team like the Lakers a chance of strong-arming the Pelicans into a bad trade that only benefits one team.
"They wanted more and more and more", a source told the LA Times.
According to Brad Turner, the Lakers pulled out of trade negotiations amid the outrageous asking price that the Pelicans had for Davis.

Super Bowl overnight TV ratings fall to 10-year low
The Rams earned the dubious distinction of being tied with the '72 Miami Dolphins for scoring the fewest points in a Super Bowl. Brady, of course, has been the quarterback for all six of those championships and has been to an incredible nine Super Bowls.
Hubble fortuitously discovers a new galaxy in the cosmic neighborhood
Not only is it one of just a few dwarf spheroidals that have a well established distance but it is also extremely isolated. Astronomers have discovered a galaxy thought to be around 13 billion years old - almost as old as the universe itself.
The Lakers were also willing to also send two first-round draft picks, they said.
There was speculation that the Pelicans' shifting demands were part of their hope that Davis wouldn't be traded by the deadline and might change his mind and decide to stay in New Orleans.
"I don't make those decisions", Gentry said.
The Davis camp spewing how much they don't want to play in Boston isn't ideal, but it won't deter Ainge from making a "Godfather" offer of his own this summer. There's a real possibility that the Pelicans and Davis could agree on a limited playing schedule post-trade deadline, but that's undetermined. New Orleans must really like Jayson Tatum.
Davis has two years left on his contract, although he does hold a player option for the 2020-21 season. Zion Williamson is the unanimous first pick and has been for months, and he has the makings of a franchise player who would bring tremendous energy wherever he goes. I doubt he would want to sign a large extension with a team bound for the lottery in the not-so-distant future.
