ESPN is reporting that Anthony Davis and the Pelicans have agreed to a 5 year 145 million dollar contract.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Pelicans and Davis have agreed to a five-year extension estimated at nearly $145 million that will kick in starting with the 2016-17 season and run through Davis’ 28th birthday.
First-round picks from the 2012 NBA draft like Davis are eligible to negotiate contract extensions now through Oct. 31. But like any free-agent deal around the league, they can’t be formally signed until July 9, when a leaguewide moratorium on roster business is lifted.
Davis tweeted he had agreed to the deal shortly after the window for negotiations opened after midnight ET.
