Davis, will he stay with the Lakers?
There is no doubt that The Brow will finally continue in the gold and purple franchise for a long time, being the perfect partner for LeBron James; However, there is a great doubt in the environment, and it is how long your bond will last.
The journalistic versions suggest that the Lakers will offer him five years of contract with a lucrative salary of $ 189.9 million; However, the intention of Davis and his agent Rich Paul, the same Rey, would be to have a 1 + 1 contract (second year of player option) in order to match his contract with the NBA Finals MVP.
Although the possibility of signing a 2 + 1 bond would not be ruled out either, so that in 2022, when he has been in the league for 10 years, can be selected to receive 35 percent of the salary cap versus 30% you can receive today.
