That would be the worst decision he can make. He would be a FA with 9 years service which would gain him nothing. A 2+1 would put him at 10 years and 35% of the cap.


Plus it would run the duration of Bron’s contract should Lebron pick up his option.

I did the math previously and I think that the magic cap number for AD would be $90 mil. Below that cap number he would be better off extending and above that he would be better off opting out.

Yeah - selling the house was kinda a surprise when I saw it, but maybe he's just trying to pile up cash / reduce expenses, not knowing when the NBA will be back.


I wouldn't read too much into it.
PG listed his house today, and we know the season will resume at some point.

Man, what a bummer this whole corona stuff was to the Lakers.
The team was getting to its peak

Biggest lesson they were learning?

Play through AD second half of the fourth quarter.

Take the pressure of lebron to keep him loose. AD takes the fouls, can make great decisions and great shooting % in any situation.

If they lost this during the break, it will be hard to watch.

AD might be the most skilled big on both offense and defense ever, but needs to get to another level and become the best player in the league, which he has in him to do. Similar to Shaq who didn't become the unquestioned best player in the league until 2000 when he won MVP. Currently, he's a top 5 player in the league imo, and don't see that big of a gap between AD & both Giannis & Kawhi. Only glaring flaws in his game is becoming a better playmaker, better decisions when being double teamed, and get even better playing against physicality, which he got much better at in the last game against the Clippers & the 2nd half of the 2nd Bucks game. With the current unknown climate of the NBA salary cap, it's an even bigger bet AD stays as a Laker and will for a long time, especially with Rich Paul.

Giannis and Kawhi have led winning teams, something we haven’t seen from AD. He needs that alpha because he isn’t one.

I agree about him needing an alpha, but disagree with the comparison to Kawhi and Giannis. Those two guys have also had the benefit of being able to play for coaches who specialize in wizardry lol (Pop, Bud, Nurse) and competent FO execs who know how to build a team. This is the first time in AD's career that he's been able to truly experience those things.

I could not find one in my quick Twitter scan of the situation: Question- is there a reason AD’s date is 3 days earlier? Is that something that is specific to his contract or?

Per Shams

New player option dates for 2020 NBA free agency:

Anthony Davis: Oct. 14
Gordon Hayward: Oct. 17
DeMar DeRozan: Oct. 17
Mike Conley Jr.: Oct. 17
Andre Drummond: Oct. 17
