Ainge is eager to trade for Davis and pair him with [Kyrie] Irving, sources said. New Orleans has listed Davis as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls.

Had the Lakers agreed to increase their offer, they would have essentially been trading two rosters for Davis; the one they have now and a future roster, given all of the draft picks that were asked for.

Julius Randle #30 of the New Orleans Pelicans, Jrue Holiday #11, and Elfrid Payton #4 talk during the game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on January 9, 2019 at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. There is a theory bouncing around now that this list actually isn't Davis' real list, but is instead a way for Davis and his agent, Rich Paul of Klutch Sports Group, to force a way to join LeBron James and the Lakers.
