NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The New Orleans Pelicans’ Anthony Davis, by most accounts, is a once-in-a-generation talent that the Pels weren’t supposed to let walk for anything less than their asking price. And they didn’t,

Pels General Manager Dell Demps released the following statement Thursday (Feb. 7) on Davis’ future with the team:

“Anthony Davis will play the remainder of the 2018-19 season for the New Orleans Pelicans. A number of factors contributed to this decision. Ultimately, Anthony made it clear to us that he wants to play and he gives our team the best opportunity to win games. Moreover, the Pelicans want to preserve the integrity of the game and align our organization with NBA policies. We believe Anthony playing upholds the values that are in the best interest of the NBA and its fans. We look forward to seeing Anthony in a Pelicans uniform again soon.”
