ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers are in trade talks with the New Orleans Pelicans on power forward Anthony Davis.

According to Wojnarowski, the “Lakers No. 4 pick has been discussed as trade chip to help Pels acquire high-level player in multi-team deals.”

However, both the Celtics and Lakers are looking to negotiate independently.

Woj went on to tweet that the Celtics remain “undeterred” in their pursuit of the New Orleans star, and that it could be the team’s best shot at keeping Kyrie Irving on the roster.

The Celtics currently hold picks #14, #20, and #22 to the Lakers #4.
