After being traded to his preferred destination in Los Angeles, the Lakers thought that Anthony Davis was going to be a Laker for life, but that was not the case. On Tuesday, January 7, 2020, the Lakers offered Anthony Davis a four-year contract worth $146 million, WOW! That is a lot of money, but obviously, Davis figures that he is worth a lot more than the 146 million the Lakers offered him. So what does that mean? Will Davis stay with the Lakers and sign a long-term deal or will he test free agency this coming offseason, personally speaking. However, if it was me, and I was offered $146 million for four years to play a game, I love I would sign the contract in a heartbeat on questions asked.
So I guess the question is, what will Anthony Davis do? Will he stay with the Lakers sign a long term deal try to win a championship? Or will Davis decide that going would be better for him? To me, going somewhere else wouldn’t make sense for Davis as he wanted to be in Los Angeles so he could play with Lebron and also have an opportunity to win a championship and opportunity Davis felt he didn’t have in New Orleans. As all this is happening, what must Lebron be thinking? Is there a change Anthony Davis leaves Los Angeles for greener pastures, or does he feel that staying in LA and teaming up with Lebron is his only shot at winning an NBA Championship?
I think it would be in Davis’s best interest to stay in Los Angeles. But at the same time, I feel the decision to stay or go will all depend on how far the Lakers go in the playoffs.
