New York – Anthony Davis' father doesn't like the idea of his son playing for the Celtics. 

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne broke the story via a text message sent by Anthony Davis Sr., who didn't agree with Boston trading Isaiah Thomas back in 2017 and wouldn't want to see his son donning green-and-white anytime soon. 

"I would never want my son to play for Boston after what they done to Isaiah Thomas, Davis Sr. said. "No loyalty. Guy gives his heart and soul and they traded him. 

"This is just my opinion, not Anthony's. I've just seen things over the years with Boston and there's no loyalty." (ESPN)

The story broke on the same day that Kyrie Irving chose not to double down on the commitment he made to Boston prior to the start of the season, stating he would re-sign to stay with the Celtics this summer, followed by a report by The Athletic's Shams Charania on Daivs. According to Charania, the Celtics aren't considered a long-term destination for Davis, who still has one year left on his current deal before he will become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2020.
