Anthony Davis renews with the Lakers for 5 years and 190 million

Domino effect on the Los Angeles Lakers. Hours after we learned of LeBron James’ contract extension, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has announced that Anthony Davis has renewed his relationship with the Los Angeles franchise for five years and 190 million dollars. Yes, La Ceja will wear gold and purple until 2025.

The logic has prevailed. We all knew it was a matter of days before Davis certified his continuity with the gold and purple, but it remained to be known on what terms – number of seasons. Finally, it will be for five seasons and signing for the maximum, an agreement that is fully related to LeBron’s. Much was said about the possibility that the star power forward signed a short contract to adapt it to that of El Rey. Once it made its extension to 2023 official, there was no reason for Davis not to commit to long-term.

According to sources from the aforementioned journalist, Davis would have discussed various scenarios with the Californian organization and, as we said, signing for fewer years was on the table. Now, unless a transfer prevents it previously (it sounds impossible), La Ceja will be in the Lakers at least until 2024, since for the 2024-25 course the option to terminate the contract early is saved.

At 27, Davis has become a fundamental piece of the champion Lakers. In some games he was the owner of the game over LeBron James, and there was even a moment in which it was debated whether it was he who should be named MVP of the Finals. We are talking about an enormous player who has fitted in perfectly with El Rey and last season he averaged 26.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.3 blocks and 1.5 steals per game, while signing a 50 percent from the field, 33 percent from 3-pointers and 84.6 percent from the free throw line.

Pelinka complies with the plan

Rob Pelinka continues to do a phenomenal job. When he arrived, while still with Magic Johnson, his decisions were questioned. Once you have flown alone, the result cannot be described as less than unbeatable. A few days ago he made it clear that his idea was to prolong this winning project for many years. “We don’t see this simply as a one or two year window. We want to remain competitive in the long term and make decisions that allow us to do just that. ” Said and done. The Lakers have opened a door that makes them a contender for the ring for at least three more seasons. (GG) (NBA Maniacs)
