And in the latest move, the superstar 6-time All-Star also unexpectedly showed goodwill to stick with the Pelicans next season. “I still have a contract with the Pelicans. It is entirely possible that I will stay here next season. So I can’t be crazy about staying here next year, ”Davis told ESPN’s Nick Friedell.

Davis signed a $ 127 million five-year contract with the Pelicans in 2015. His contract with the team will end at the end of the 2020-21 season. But Davis may leave sooner if he decides to terminate the contract copper in the final year and become a free agent in the summer of 2020. So if you decide to keep Davis, the Pelicans are completely at risk of losing him next season.

Best Game Ever: Anthony Davis had never been in a zone like this ...

Davis failed to reunite with close friend LeBron James at the Staples Center. Because of that, Davis was limited to the number of minutes he played each game in the second half of the season with the Pelicans. He also faced boos and curses from fans at Smoothie Kings Center. Davis also did not play in the last 7 matches of the season.

Currently the Lakers and the Boston Celtics are teams in the race to sign the 26-year-old star. But it will not be easy to meet the overly demanding requirements of the Pelicans. The Lakers once offered up to 6 young players with 2 round picks but still could not move the Pelicans leader. So Davis is also mentally prepared to continue playing with his teammates for another season.
