Davis has requested to be traded from the Pelicans and the six-time All-Star had his sights set on Milwaukee, among other teams.
“I saw that report, and I think it’s great,” Lasry told Sporting News. “It’s a little bit of what we want. We want players to come and play in Milwaukee. And part of it is, when you’re winning and you’re setting a standard for excellence, people see that. People want to win. It doesn’t make a difference if you’re in Milwaukee, New York or L.A. The whole goal is winning. So we hope it would be players like Anthony Davis and others who want to come to Milwaukee.”
However, Davis remained in New Orleans through the Feb. 7 trade deadline. Still, Milwaukee will likely shop the 2017 NBA All-Star Game MVP this offseason.
