Davis is expected to out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent. While it’s a pipe dream, Davis in the Bay would fill the void that Kevin Durant left a season ago and make them the obvious title favorite.
Currently with former MVP and fellow superstar LeBron James in Los Angeles, Davis is considered the best center in the league, although preferring to play power forward. The 27-year-old is averaging 26.7 points per game on 51.1% from the field.
It’s not just his scoring that takes Davis into a tier of his own, but his versatility on both ends of the court. He’s an elite three-point shooter, can play with his back to the basketball, and can dominate defensively.
Averaging 2.4 blocks per game to go along with 1.5 steals, Davis has transformed the Lakers team from one that missed the playoffs into a true championship contender. The Lakers were the top team in the West prior to the league’s midseason suspension.
There’s really no chance Davis leaves LeBron this offseason and joins their northern neighbors.
