Those wants are on a sliding scale.
For the better part of 2019, Anthony Davis has had a short-list of four teams that he'd prefer to end up with following his trade request out of New Orleans.
According to front offices that have engaged in conversations with Griffin, he hasn't sounded convinced that one team is likely to fulfill his wishes for a Davis deal.
The Pelicans have set their asking price for Anthony Davis.

He is on global duty with Wales and started for Ryan Giggs' side on Saturday away against World Cup finalists Croatia . James spent seven years at Hull's academy before leaving for Swansea as a 16-year-old in the summer of 2014.
The Pelicans are reportedly open to multiteam trades for Davis as Griffin has started to provide potential suitors with the framework of the trade package he'd want for the star big man, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.
The report further notes that the Pelicans acknowledge that a three-team deal might be needed to complete a move for Davis. Rumor has it, Brooklyn wants to go after AD, but with the recent Allen Crabbe trade that shipped away a 2019 first round pick, they might not have the ammo to pull off a deal.
On the other hand, the Lakers have the fourth overall pick.
This trade scenario leans heavily on Griffin's opinion of this year's draft class, but it checks nearly all the boxes; the hope would be that the quality of the picks offsets the lack of a current All-Star. Those comments came during a conference call to introduce newly hired GM Trajan Langdon, at which time Griffin also said he planned to talk with Davis and his agent, Rich Paul, in Los Angeles at some point soon.
For now, Woj's report simply means the Bulls, owners of that No. 7 pick, could be back in play as a potential trade partner for Davis. The six-time All-Star was the No. 1 overall pick out of Kentucky in 2012.
Davis averaged 25.9 points, 12 rebounds and 3.9 assists for the Pelicans past year.
