New Orleans Pelicans president of basketball operations David Griffin says there is no urgency to trade superstar Anthony Davis before the June 20 NBA draft.

"I never anticipate that," Griffin said, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune's Andrew Lopez. "I'm open-minded. I think we all are. There's a point at which we act. If things evolve in such a way that it's time for us to make a decision relative to Anthony Davis or any other part of the organization, we will.

"But we're not in a hurry to do anything. We don't feel there is a time sensitivity to anything we're talking about. That includes AD's desire to stay or not stay. It's not something there's a shot clock on."

Griffin confirmed an earlier report that he will meet with projected No. 1 pick Zion Williamson and his family. The Pelicans have the top pick and are expected to select the Duke superstar.

A Davis trade before the draft could potentially net the Pelicans more draft picks in addition to player assets. Teams like the Boston Celtics have multiple first-round selections.
