Anthony Davis Makes Bombshell Statement About His Future Plans

The New Orleans Pelicans are on the verge of losing Anthony Davis, but it seems like they have one major advantage when it comes to keeping him. The team can offer Davis enough money and a five-year contract with a brilliant eight-percent annual raise. Other teams can offer Davis a four-year contract and five percent annual raise.

Davis has qualified for the Designated Veteran Exception. His current team can offer him a deal with 35 percent of the salary cap. Other teams can give Davis 30 percent. So, he can get a five-year contract worth $239.5 million. Other teams can give him $152.2 million.

But, Sam Amick believes that Davis is not interested about money. He is more interested in joining the greatest basketball situation, regardless of whether it is a player or organizations.

“I’d take legacy over money. I want to have a legacy. All my people that look up to me, the younger kids, I want them to know about AD’s legacy. Championships, the things I do in the community, being a good teammate, playing hard. All that stuff matters the most to me. Don’t get me wrong, money is amazing. But I think in that sense, money or legacy, I think my legacy will win that battle every time,” Davis said.

Things got really heated up after LeBron James was having late night meal with Davis. Many say that he is trying to recruit the player. This got general managers confused, and now they are trying to force the league to warn LeBron. Let’s see if the Lakers are strong enough to land Anthony. He is not interested in money, and the Lakers have the fire he needs. So, there’s almost no reason for Davis to say ‘no’ to Magic Johnson and the front office. The next few months will be super interesting.
