New Orleans Pelicans superstar Anthony Davis appeared on ESPN’s The Jump on Thursday, and Rachel Nichols asked him about the rumors that he could one day join the Lakers or demand a trade to the team.

Davis expressed his focus on the present with the Pelicans, however:

“You hear it everywhere. And it’s funny. How did that even happen? … But in my head, I don’t pay attention to it. I look at what I have now, and what I can do now, and it’s helping my team win. You can’t look into what someone else is saying or listen to all the white noise. ‘AD’s going here, AD’s going here, AD’s going here.’ AD’s playing for the Pelicans this year. So my job is to focus on winning and helping these guys as much as possible, on and off the floor, and the rest will take care of itself.”
