Davis will receive $270 million over the following five seasons, including the two years left on his current contract, keeping him under contract until the 2027–2028 season.
Davis, 30, has been named to eight All-Star teams, four NBA All-Star teams, and four All-Defensive teams. In his 11-year career, he has averaged 24 points, 10.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 2.3 blocks, including a career-high 28.1 points in 2017–18 and a career-best 12.5 rebounds last season. He is one of the league's most talented big men.
The Lakers had a successful offseason, keeping D'Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves, and Rui Hachimura while adding Gabe Vincent, Taurean Prince, and Cam Reddish.
As long as Davis stays healthy, the Lakers should be in a position to contend once more with LeBron James returning for another campaign. In the past three seasons, he has had problems remaining on the floor, appearing in just 132 of 236 games. He missed 26 games in the previous season and 42 games in 2021–2022.
