Earlier reporting indicated that Davis intended to decline his player option and then sign a long-term deal with the Lakers. It is not clear if that is still his intention, or if he will test the free agent market.
The 27-year-old thrived in his first season alongside LeBron James in Los Angeles, averaging 26.1 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks over 62 regular-season games. Davis improved his production during the playoffs, averaging 27.7 points throughout the Lakers’ title run.
One of the game’s marquee two-way talents, Davis has already made seven all-star teams over his eight-year career and has been named to four All-NBA first teams.
Davis spent his first seven seasons with the New Orleans Pelicans.
