There have been a lot of rumors about Anthony Davis changing teams the next time he goes into free agency. Davis has a contract with the New Orleans Pelicans that will last until 2020. However, many claim they already know where Davis will end up after his contract with the Pelicans ends.
LeBron James, the biggest NBA superstar, decided to join the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this year. Since then, the team has become a very attractive destination for future free agents. James has openly discussed the possibility of joining forces with the Pelicans star. He seems very excited about the idea of playing alongside Davis.
However, Davis has not been that open when it comes to discussing his professional future. He said that at the moment, he hopes to makes the best out of his time with the Pelicans. Still, when reporters asked him what he wants to see happen in the future, he did share some ideas.
After the Pelicans went up against the Lakers, Davis said that he is more interested in his legacy over the idea of making the most money. With that being said, we know that the Pelicans will do everything in their power to convince Davis to stay with the team. They can offer him as much as $240 million to stay in New Orleans. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Lakers could pay him a maximum of $152 million. Since he is not interested in the money but in his legacy, that means that he won’t have a problem accepting the Lakers’ proposal.
We are really hoping that Davis will take up the offer to play alongside the greatest NBA star of our time. If he and James play together, they will win a championship title in no time. However, we will have to wait a little while longer to find out if this will become reality or if the rumors will turn out to be just rumors.
