By: coachemup!

Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers are finalizing a five-year maximum contract worth $190 million, agent Rich Paul told The Athletic, confirming an ESPN report. The deal, which includes an early termination option prior to the fifth season, could be signed as soon as today. Davis previously declined his $28.7 million player option in order to work out a new deal. This deal comes the day after the Lakers agreed to a maximum two-year, $85 million contract extension with four-time NBA champion LeBron James. His deal will run through 2023. Davis, 27, averaged 26.1 points and 9.3 rebounds per game in his first season in L.A., helping the Lakers to their first NBA championship in 10 years. The former No. 1 pick has made seven All-Star appearances and made the All-NBA First Team for the fourth time this season.
