On August 4th, Beijing time, the NBA legend Woj reported that the Lakers had reached an early contract renewal with Anthony Davis, the core player in charge. The new contract is a super maximum salary contract with a salary of 186 million US dollars for three years and an average salary of 62 million US dollars. It is understood that Pelinka, the general manager of the Lakers, called Richie Paul, the agent of Thick Eyebrow, on the first day when he was eligible to sign and renew the contract, which shows that the management of the Lakers attached great importance to Thick Eyebrow, and that the 186 million yuan in three years was full of sincerity. After learning the top salary given by the Lakers, Thick Eyebrow almost agreed directly without any hesitation, which shows that the two sides are congenial.
Previously, the five-year average salary of 304 million signed by the Celtics and Jay Brown was 60.7 million, which was only a few days before the creation of NBA history, but it was broken by the average salary of 62 million. I have to say that the current salary level of the NBA is really high, and the speed of promotion is also very fast. At this rate, contracts with an average salary of more than 60 million will be everywhere in the future.
After the Lakers renewed their contract with Thick Eyebrows in advance, the cooperation between Thick Eyebrows and Lakers will last until 2028, with a total price of more than 270 million US dollars. This also means that the Lakers’ future salary space may be locked by the thick eyebrows and James. If there is no major transaction, the Lakers can only build a team around them in the future.
In fact, the combination of healthy thick eyebrows and healthy James still has a very good effect. The first time they partnered, they played the first record in the western regular season and won the championship. But then there was a problem with the Lakers’ team-building ideas. After Wei Shao formed the Big Three, the Lakers’ record did not go up and down. Just after trading Wei Shao, the Lakers went all the way to the Western Conference, which also gave the Lakers a chance to reflect.
Now, the Lakers are willing to provide Davis and James with a top salary contract, and how competitive role players they have strengthened this summer can prove that the Lakers have completely decided to build a team around Jamey and will not seek a third star to join. The success in the second half of last season also proved that only by maintaining the continuity and depth of the existing lineup can the Lakers go further. So what do you think of this? Welcome to pay attention to the comments, let’s discuss together!
