Months after leading the Los Angeles Lakers to their first NBA Finals victory in a decade, Anthony Davis is in no rush to re-sign with the team.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports Davis will not immediately commit to the Lakers once NBA free agency begins Friday at 6 pm. While the former Wildcat will ultimately end up remaining in L.A., he’s expected to wait until at least through Thanksgiving to weigh various contracts.
Woj says, “[Davis] has several possible scenarios on a new deal with the Lakers, including a three-year, $106 million deal that would include a player option on the 2022-23 season — a structure that would align Davis with the end of LeBron James’ deal.”
The Unibrow will agree to hang around as long as LeBron is in town. Then after winning a couple more titles, he can renegotiate an even bigger deal. Not a bad idea, Mr. Davis.
