La Lakers big man Anthony Davis agrees to the highest annual salary in NBA history
Power forward Anthony Davis has agreed to the highest annual salary in NBA history after he signed on a three-year, $186 million contract extension, tying him to the franchise up to 2028 for a total of 270 million.
His average salary under the extension exceeds the $60.7 million per season that Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics is slated to make after recently signing the richest deal in NBA history at five years for $304 million.
Davis averaged 25.9 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game last season but played in just 56 regular-season games,due to injury.
He played in all 16 postseason games last season during the Lakers’ run to the western conference finals.
He also helped Los Angeles win the 2020 championship in the NBA bubble during the pandemic-shortened season.
