It has been a critical weekend for the LA Lakers' next season and the future of the franchise as the team's GM Rob Pelinka has been able to extend Anthony Davis for three more years and a 186 million deal.

The NBA has been shocked, and while the media is trying to sell the narrative of being a massive mistake because they want you to believe AD is a 'fragile' player that misses more games than anyone else in the league, and that isn't true, Pelinka knows he has done a master move.

Keeping Davis locked for the Lakers' future is a great move, and the GM has opened up about why they decided to extend the purple and gold star. "Rob Pelinka on Anthony Davis extension (1/3): “In our conversations with Anthony, his desire to lead our franchise for the next several years became abundantly clear..." Said Pelinka.

"AD understands that his commitment to being the hardest worker, combined with his high character, is what will help define our culture for many seasons to come... It is a proud day for Lakers Nation when we’re able to extend the contract of one of the game’s most dominant two-way players.”

LeBron James influenced Anthony Davis' extension

In a recent report, it has been revealed that the Lakers extended Anthony Davis to help paved the way for LeBron James to sign and stay in LA for more time after his recent two-year extension ends.
