Anthony Davis is one of the favourites to be named this year’s NBA Most Valuable Player.
The superstar big man was traded from the Pelicans after requesting a trade, leaving the franchise stunned.
After initially turning down a host of trade offers from the Lakers, front office finally relented and allowed him to leave in exchange for a haul of draft picks.
He is set to be a free agent next summer, however, but could be in line to sign a new five-year deal next summer.
Davis has two years remaining on a five-year $127million contract, though the final year is a player option.
That means he can opt out next summer, and sign a five-year $202m deal elsewhere.
According to Forbes.com, Davis has an impressive net worth of $34.6m.Davis is a highly marketable figure in the basketball world.
Since being the first pick in the 2012 NBA draft, he has gone on to become a six-time All Star, as well as being named to the All-NBA First Team three times.
Since singing with the Lakers, his marketability has only increased, and he was recently featured in the new Beats By Dre commercial.
