Its a shot at Laker management to spare no expense in trying to win a Championship. Its a smart move.

AD is again showing his true colors. He's a baby and will leave if LeBron retires or they don't work out right away. I think he's forgotten how his first team kept sheltering him through his fifteen (yes I know exaggerating) different injuries.

There's nothing else for AD to do. Or shooting a movie together with other player(s).

If this situation is true then AD is a lucky man. At the end of one season, AD will want to get the hell away from James!

Didn’t Davis say before the trade that he would not sign a new contract with anyone before free agency in 2020?

He knows he’s committing too the lakers , he’s going too toy with other teams next season. Acting like he’s going to sign with them so they don’t get quality free agents

don't let this news story distract you from the fact that Rachel Nichols is 10x better then michelle beadle---she is able to get through a news story without making awkward jokes and laughing like a coked out soccer mom at everything---Rachel is committed, eloquent, even keeled. Give her more airtime.

They really don't have anything to talk about? Lazy journalism. How is this even a story? This isn't even basketball

If this was any other team besides the Lakers, they would be talking them up so hard, talking about this team is stacked and the immediate future is bright but because it’s the Lakers they have all the questions and concerns. Trash.

Good Players is smart they have leverage by signing one year deals. Davis holds who he plays for in his future it's good business on getting surrounded with good players or he walks to another team who signs players he trust.

AD IS a two way player, Dwight Howard is not. AD can be another Kareem type of Laker, he can be the next Laker 'lifer'. However the way Free Agency is going, players like the opportunity of making their own decisions.

meh, play for the Lakers for a year then when it doesnt work out sign with Toronto. Raptors could do the exact same thing with AD as they did with Kawhi. That was no fluke.

Espn always trying to stir drama for the lakers. AD is making no promises because you never know what will happen he hasn’t even played a game for LA yet. He doesn’t want to do a kyrie and state he’s staying long term then have everything go to shit and then bail

You know LeBron is talking to AD as a reason not to commit early. This keeps the Lakers in check. As dysfunctional as the front office has been, I don't blame them for doing this. Show us you are willing to provide some stability to where the Lakers seems like a desired location especially for veterans that want a ring that are still good but will accept a vet min contract.

Paul George didn't ask to be traded to okc, Kawhi Leonard didn't request Toronto as a destination either. Anthony Davis requested a trade to the Lakers specifically. He's staying.

Rachel sounds annoying. “He doesn’t have to do anything” like shut up with that bs. We understood what he meant by it. Smh.

He's going to sign a 2 and 1, so he can opt out after his 10th year and get a super max contract. Also, he's not going to commit to the Lakers long term (and he shouldn't) to keep the organization accountable for putting together winning teams. You can't trust lakers management as presently constructed
Kawahi is secretly working for next year! If the clippers beat them all season???he just might move over!
