Report: AD rejects Lakers' 4-year, $146M max extension offer
Anthony Davis rejected a four-year, $146-million max contract extension from the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday, reports Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. The six-time All-Star wants to focus on the current season and is expected to decline his $28.7-million player option for the 2020-21 campaign, sources told Haynes, who adds Davis isn't expected to bolt from the Lakers in free agency. Davis can receive a five-year, $202-million max contract this summer. The 26-year-old was acquired in a blockbuster deal with the New Orleans Pelicans this past offseason after waiving his no-trade clause. Davis was thus unable to sign an extension until Tuesday.
