As the Los Angeles Lakers begin pursuit of New Orleans All-NBA center Anthony Davis, their initial offers have been underwhelming, including a package of Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma, Rajon Rondo, Michael Beasley and a first-round pick, league sources told ESPN.

The Lakers have included only two of their better young players in a rotating group of offers, none of which included multiple first-round picks or offering salary cap relief for the Pelicans -- typical staples of offers for superstar players, sources said.

The Pelicans haven't considered the offers worthy of a response or countering, league sources said.

Davis requested a trade Monday through his agent, Rich Paul, of Klutch Sports, with the Lakers as his preferred destination. These offers resemble the negotiating style that the Lakers employed in recent years in pursuit of Kawhi Leonard when he was with the Spurs and Paul George with the Pacers, league sources said.

The Spurs and Pacers traded those All-Stars elsewhere.
