Anthony Davis does not believe he is a long-term pillar for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Davis, who is under contract with the basketball team later this year, told the Chicago Tribune in an interview on Saturday that he would be interested in exploring this team.
"I mean, (that's) definitely hometown," Davis said. "If the opportunity ever comes, and when that time comes, I would definitely consider it."
Davis was hired by the New Orleans Pelicans on July 6, but has repeatedly said he's concentrating only on the year ahead when he'll work with LeBron James, DeMarcus's cousins, Kyle Kuzma, and Danny Green to return the Lakers to get the playoffs.
After his introductory press conference, Davis said he has one year with the Lakers and will then consider his options. The words had to terrorize the organization, suggesting that the farm could make him a pillar of their future teams as LeBron grows older. The team not only handed over the young players Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart, but also sent three draft picks for the first round to New Orleans, meaning that the pelicans essentially control the Lakers' draft from 2021 to 2024 the 35-year-old LeBron James, who was built to win now.
"I'm just focusing on this season," Davis said in an interview after the first press conference. "I do not know what's going to happen, I've got a year here so I'm going to make the best of this year and when that time comes in the summer or when the season is over – hopefully mid-June after we had this parade and me a few days to think – then we can talk about it, but until then I will do my utmost to help this team win this year. "
