Anthony Davis signs five-year contract with Lakers

The Lakers forward has agreed to a five-year maximum contract to remain in Los Angeles.

While there were discussions about Anthony Davis possibly heading elsewhere this offseason that is no longer the case. The Lakers star has agreed to a five-year maximum contract to remain with Los Angeles per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Lakers just won the 2020 NBA Finals and are looking for more. Keeping Anthony Davis in. town certainly increased the chances Los Angeles can win again and as early as next season.

This really seemed to be a formality once the team agreed to a contract extension with LeBron James on Wednesday. With James and Anthony Davis represented by the same agency, these deals appear to be done in tandem and for the benefit of both players. By James signing an extension it gives Davis the sense of commitment to the team that many of his former teammates have not had. James gets a extremely talented teammate that could be one of the best he has had in his career.
