One of the biggest names this past summer that changed the NBA team is, without a doubt, Anthony Davis. One of the most versatile big men in the league joined the Los Angeles Lakers in hopes of winning a championship alongside LeBron James, and even though the season just started, it’s evident he found his place with the Lakers. Davis is playing like a true MVP, averaging 28.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 3 blocks per game.
The Lakers are hoping Davis remains with them long after LeBron’s performance declines, simply because they gave their young core of players for his services. The Lakers are playing the Bulls tonight in Chicago, which is his hometown, and there were some conversations about him potentially joining the Bulls.
At a press conference at the local restaurant where Davis made a surprise appearance for the members of the Perspectives Charter School, he talked about the possibility of joining the Bulls. He said there is nothing better than playing in front of his hometown crowd.
“Honestly, there’s nothing like playing at home. “I don’t know. I mean, I am a free agent next year, but we will see. It’s a possibility.”

Davis will be an unrestricted free agent next summer if he turns down the player option for the 2020/21 season worth $28 million. If that happens, many teams will be interested in Davis; however, if he wins a championship with the Lakers this season, he will probably stay with the organization where he knows he can compete for another championship.
