5 free agents that would make sense for the Los Angeles Lakers

Lakers' offseason questions: What's next for Anthony Davis
USA Today

1. Anthony Davis

During the 2020 offseason, the Lakers need to put extending Anthony Davis at the top of the to-do list.

Without Davis, the Lakers would not have captured their 17th title. He helped the Lakers in multiple aspects.

The 6-foot-10 forward helps the team on the glass, on defense, and on the offensive side of the floor. The Heat struggled to contain the forward for 48 minutes a night.

AD helps this Lakers team play small ball. In addition to the small ball lineup, he can bring the ball up the court and defend positions one through five.

This season, Davis averaged 26.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game. LA needs to extend this giant in order to repeat.

Davis has helped LBJ elevate his game by having a “Robin” that can carry the load and stay by his side.

Eventually, Davis will become the go-to guy once James’ game declines a bit. But for now, the two can feed off of each other. Similar to Dwyane Wade, Davis can hold James accountable and elevate his level of play.

If the Lakers are going to repeat, they need to re-sign AD.
