Pelicans to rest Davis against Lakers

Wantaway New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis will not play against the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday.

The Pelicans will sit Davis in the matchup to give him rest, New Orleans announced before the game.

Los Angeles attempted to acquire NBA All-Star Davis before this year’s trade deadline after his agent Rich Paul notified the Pelicans he would not sign an extension.

However, New Orleans decided to retain Davis for the rest of the 2018-19 season.
