METAIRIE, La. (AP) Anthony Davis swatted away the notion that his decision to hire new representation meant he was setting the stage for a change of scenery.
With three seasons left on his contract and five All-Star nods to his name, Davis' leverage to control where he plays is growing. So when he recently left the Wasserman agency that negotiated his current contract and joined Klutch Sports, which also represents Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, it begged questions about the reasons for the switch.
The move also stoked paranoia in New Orleans, the city Chris Paul left in his prime shortly after he changed agents.
