The Los Angeles Lakers had a tentative deal in place with the Chicago Bulls on the weekend of January 25th for Jabari Parker.
The Lakers were set to trade Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Michael Beasley in the deal for Parker.
But Caldwell-Pope had to approve any trade and had not yet signed off on the deal. The deal remained in limbo until January 28th when Davis requested a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Bulls realized the Lakers would not move forward with any trades until the Davis situation played itself and moved on. Chicago eventually traded Parker and Bobby Portis to the Washington Wizards for Otto Porter Jr.
