Anthony Davis is finalizing a new five-year, $190 million contract with the Lakers. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski delivered the news regarding the biggest remaining puzzle piece of the 2020 NBA offseason on Thursday.

Following the news of the deal, ESPN’s Bobby Marks delivered a year-by-year breakdown of Davis’ proposed new contract.

Davis arrived in Los Angeles prior to the start of the 2019-20 season via a blockbuster trade between the Lakers and Pelicans. In 62 regular season outings, Davis averaged 26.1 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. In the postseason, he averaged 27.7 points per game as the Lakers marched to the 2020 NBA Championship.

Along with Davis, the Lakers and LeBron James agreed to a two-year contract extension earlier in the week. LeBron is now under contract through the 2022-23 season.
