The Lakers aren’t just going after Anthony Davis.
The Lakers have been among the teams that have contacted the Pistons about Reggie Bullock. So far Detroit hasn’t been very interested in moving him for what they’ve been offered.

And Anthony Davis isn’t the only player drawing interest in New Orleans.
Amid the Anthony Davis talks, teams calling on New Orleans' next best player -- guard Jrue Holiday -- tell ESPN that the Pels are indicating no interest in moving him. Beyond this season, Holiday has three years, $77M left on deal through 2022.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 2, 2019
The Houston Rockets are testing the market for interest in Brandon Knight, joining a long list of teams trying to dump salary as the trade deadline continues to creep up. He is owed roughly $15 million next season before becoming a free agent in 2020.
Knight missed all of the 2017-2018 season for the Phoenix Suns with a torn ACL. Before returning from the injury, he was traded to the Houston Rockets in a move designed to dump Ryan Anderson’s hefty contract on the Suns.
According to Kevin O’Connor of the Ringer, the Memphis Grizzlies reportedly have interest in Knight.
