Anthony Davis wants out of New Orleans and the Pelicans obliged his request on one front Tuesday.
The Pelicans removed Davis from the team intro video shown before home games. Davis was nowhere to be found on the video before New Orleans’ matchup with the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Davis will not sign an extension with New Orleans and wants to be traded, agent Rich Paul told ESPN on Monday.
The 25-year-old is currently out with an injury and has not played in a game since Jan. 18. When asked if Davis will play again with the Pelicans, head coach Alvin Gentry was noncommittal.
“That’s a hard thing to answer,” he said, via ESPN. “I don’t really know how to answer that. I assume that he will.”

The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 7.
