James’ team, the Los Angeles Lakers, attempted to acquire Davis before the NBA trade deadline without success.
In December, James said he would like to have Davis as a teammate.
Davis will be eligible for a five-year, $240 million supermax extension on July 1. Only the Pelicans can offer that. The supermax gives New Orleans a one-year exclusive negotiating window and a beefed-up dollars advantage.
Davis can become a free agent in 2020.
The Shop is a collaboration between HBO, James and his business associate Maverick Carter’s company Uninterrupted.
