Anthony Davis was a critical piece for the LA Lakers on their run to the 2020 NBA title. His prolific scoring and exceptional defence led the way for LeBron James and company to beat every Western Conference rival in the playoffs and eventually defeat the Miami Heat in 6 games in the 2020 NBA Finals.

Anthony Davis finished the regular season with second place in the 'Defensive Player of the Year' voting and averaged MVP-caliber numbers.

LeBron James and Anthony Davis' selfless sharing of the ball and chemistry leading the fast-break offense in Los Angeles has led many to compare them with some of the iconic Lakers duos such as Kobe Bryant - Shaquille O'Neal and Magic Johnson - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

However, Anthony Davis' career with the LA Lakers might have been short-lived, as reports suggest that he is still considering resigning with the team.

The 27-year-old has several contract options ahead of him, including a 3-year $106 million deal that would align him with the end of LeBron James' deal.

Davis could also do a 2-year $68 million deal with an option after next year, or longer deals for four years at $146.7 million or five years at $189 million.

The NBA Free Agency is set to begin today, and Davis' agent Rich Paul will be in contact with LA Lakers GM Rob Pelinka to further discuss the forward's options.
