Anthony Davis : Latest contract details
The 30 years old Davis signed the max extension this summer and has created the record of the largest extension in NBA history. The three-year-long extension is worth $186M and will keep Davis with the Lakers until 2028. The total valuation of his deal is $270M now, which is just 10 percent less than the value of Jaylen Brown’s record contract.
Brown signed a five-year deal with the Celtics, which is worth $303.7M. The record-breaking deals raised many doubts, which is obvious since the expenses are a bit too much.
