Anthony Davis has a $28.7 million player option for the 20-21 season and almost certainly will become a free agent. Most expect Davis to re-sign with the Los Angeles Lakers next offseason.
“Don’t f--- it up,” one source close to Davis told Sam Amick of The Athletic when asked how people should see the Lakers' odds of re-signing him.
Davis helped orchestrate a move to the Lakers by requesting a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans. The Lakers traded Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and a number of first round picks to the Pelicans for Davis.
"They’re all alone in pole position, but you still have to get it over the finish line without the car going up in flames,' writes Amick in an attempt to translate the message.
