Lakers: Why Anthony Davis Trade To Golden State Could Benefit Both Sides - All Lakers

With chatter of a possible deal for incumbent Los Angeles Lakers starting point guard Russell Westbrook’s expiring and exorbitant $47.1 million contract dying down, perhaps LA could turn to a more drastic roster revamp: offloading oft-injured power forward/center Anthony Davis.

In his tenth NBA season, the 6’10” big man out of the University of Kentucky continued a disturbing trend of missing 36 or more games for the second consecutive year. His jump-shooting, once the element that added extra flair to his flexible game, has dropped off mightily in the last few seasons. He has lost some of his lift and athleticism, having packed on extra pounds to play more minutes at center. But he still should have value. That’ll happen when, in 40 healthy games during the 2021-22 season, the 29-year-old was able to post averages of 23.2 points, 9.9 boards, 3.1 assists, 2.3 blocks, and 1.2 steals.
