What does it all mean???

The Anthony Davis saga took another turn Tuesday when the Los Angeles Times' Brad Turner reported the Lakers have "pulled out" of negotiations with the New Orleans Pelicans ahead of Thursday's NBA trade deadline.

The Pelicans reportedly were demanding a mother lode of players and draft picks, leaving L.A. to essentially bid against itself: The Lakers' last offer to New Orleans included Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, Ivica Zubac, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and two first-round draft picks, according to Turner.

... Which leads us to this development minutes later:

Davis' Instagram account apparently "liked" Bleacher Report's post about the Lakers' mammoth offer.

But what does this "like" mean? Does Davis think the Pelicans should accept L.A.'s proposal? Is he glad the Lakers are no longer making offers for him ahead of the trade deadline? Or is he just selfishly happy he garners so much value on the trade market?

We'll probably never know, as the 25-year-old hasn't exactly been an open book about the whole situation.

But we do know Tuesday's news is a good development for the Boston Celtics, who hope Davis remains in New Orleans past Thursday's trade deadline so they can make a run at him this summer.
