The Boston Celtics are always present in Trade talks because of the valuable assets they have. When it comes to a potential deal for Boston, the name frequently mentioned is Anthony Davis. Many see the New Orleans Pelicans forward as the missing piece the Celtics need for them to return to title contention.

Unfortunately for Boston, at the moment, it seems like New Orleans has no intention of accomplishing a trade that would see the team part ways with its franchise star. A recent statement by head coach Alvin Gentry suggested this. But it could also mean that the Celtics must go the extra mile if they are serious about acquiring the 24-year-old.

Crazy demand

In an interview with Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald, New Orleans Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry commented on the trade talks surrounding Anthony Davis. According to Gentry, he is aware of all the rumors linking his star player to the Boston Celtics and also said that yes, they would trade him. Though he followed, "But they’re going to have to give us the New England Patriots and the two planes that they just bought. ... And I don’t think they’re going to do that."

Again, Gentry's statement likely has two meanings. Either they are disinterested in an Anthony Davis trade, or Boston must exert terrific effort if they want to bring the four-time All-Star to Beantown.

Laser focus

New Orleans Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry added in his conversation with Steve Bulpett that all the trade discussions involving Anthony Davis are only white noise.

The veteran coach's focus is on helping New Orleans become a legitimate contender in the Western Conference. The squad is on the right track as it is currently sixth in the West with its 23-21 record. The Pelicans have missed the playoffs in the past two seasons. The last time they made it to the postseason (2015), the Golden State Warriors swept them in the first round.

Super team

Alvin Gentry's remark made it seem impossible to trade for Anthony Davis. But, in the NBA, nothing is impossible. And if the Boston Celtics pull it off, another super team will be on the rise.

Right now, Boston already has a complete unit. The Celtics have proven stars in Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, and Gordon Hayward (out due to injury).

Budding talents in Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are also present. They have seasoned role players as well like Marcus Morris and Aron Baynes. Add Anthony Davis, and the Celtics could be the ones to end the reign of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference and give the Golden State Warriors a real challenge.
