Anthony Davis is in a waiting pattern on his contract terms with the Los Angeles Lakers, which could be connected to the supermax decision Giannis Antetokounmpo is weighing with the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Bucks have been "operating under the belief" that Antetokounmpo will sign a supermax extension, but nothing has been agreed upon.
"I think there are two star players waiting to sign to see what Giannis does," said Brian Windhorst on ESPN Radio. "That's Anthony Davis. He's coming back to the Lakers, but he may change the alteration of his contract, the way it's structured, to give the Lakers a window, if not for Giannis but for somebody in a one-plus-one. Because that's what LeBron is now on.
"And Bam Adebayo. If Bam Adebayo signs a max contract, the Heat will not have the room. But if he waits a year, than they will."
Adebayo shares an agent with Antetokounmpo in Alex Saratsis.
Windhorst also described Antetokounmpo's decision as the most impactful in the NBA since Kevin Durant signed with the Golden State Warriors in 2016.
During an additional Windhorst appearance on Sports Center, he reiterated the possibility of Davis signing a one-plus-one if Antetokounmpo decides against the supermax at this time.
