Many fans from Los Angeles Lakers were very scared of Anthony Davis’s decision. It’s because he had the option of being a free agent for the next season. The power forward of Lakers said to ESPN “I’ve had a great time here this season, everything has been joys, but I’m not 100% sure that I’m going to continue”
These words alarmed a wave of Lakers fans. They were terrified that Davis wouldn’t return for the 2020-2021 season.
Yesterday, sources close to the player confirmed he will be back again for the actual NBA champions. Davis aspires to a very succulent contract. He could aspire to a new contract with which he would earn 32.7 million dollars.
Last season, the Lakers made a big trade to associate Davis with LeBron James: They sent Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart, and the picks, including the No. 4 overall pick in the last NBA draft.
The power forward alongside LeBron James looked excellent during the 2019-2020 season. LeBron’s average was 25.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 10.2 assists, while Anthony Davis numbers were 26.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists. The duo celebrated the past October 11 the championship in were James won his fourth MVP finals in three different teams.
This is his first championship in eight seasons. He finished the series with 25.0 points, 10.7 rebounds 3.2 assists
Surprisingly, Rajon Rondo and Kentavious Caldwell Pope have already turned down the Lakers offer and become free agents. Another we are waiting for a decision is Dwight Howard. It is alleged that if he does not accept the Lakers, the Golden States Warriors are interested in signing him.
Goran Dragic, Brandon Ingram, Fred Vanvleet, and Montrezl Harrell are other NBA players who are free agents and we are intrigued by what team they are going to sign.
For the concern of many fans: Danny Green, Quinn Cook, Alex Caruso, Kyle Kuzma, and Talen Horton-Tucker, stay for the next season according to their contracts.
This year the Lakers won the championship comfortably. The final was 4-2 in favor, but the other series had a wide 4-1 advantage in each of them. It was to be expected since they were in the top spot in the western conference and looked dominant in the regular season.
Will LeBron James and Anthony Davis win more championships? Or the whole trade the Lakers made for Davis was just for a year of glory?
