August 5th, Beijing time, should be a good day for Lakers fans. First of all, striker Anthony Davis and the Lakers reached a three-year maximum salary renewal contract of $186 million, and the two sides have renewed the contract in advance. After reaching this contract, Davis’ current contract will expire in the summer of 2028, with a total value of more than 270 million US dollars. The annual salary of the renewed contract ($62 million) is the highest in the history of the league. In the regular season of 2022-23, Davis averaged 34.0 minutes per game, with 25.9 points, 12.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.0 blocks.
This is undoubtedly good news for Lakers fans. Although the salary of thick eyebrows is high, fans who know the ball know how important Davis is to the Lakers. Healthy Davis helped the Lakers win a championship. And in the next few seasons, they helped the Lakers enter the playoffs smoothly, so the value of thick eyebrows and their contribution to the team deserve the highest salary in history.
In addition, the Lakers also got another good news. It is reported that Keith Pompey, a reporter with the 76ers, wrote an article about the way the 76ers treated center Monterez harrell. Harrell was previously diagnosed with ACL tear in his right knee and meniscus tear. The recovery from this serious injury is very long. According to Pompey, 76ers plan to trade harrell. Harrell was not expected to get much playing time because of the abundant talents in the center position of the 76ers. Leaving harrell’s $2.89 million one-year expired contract allows 76 people to use it as a trading asset.
It is reported that the Lakers are very interested in Monterez harrell. They are willing to send a second round of signing+part of cash as a bargaining chip, and both sides have a strong willingness to reach an agreement. Harrell’s physical talent and explosion, his wingspan can reach 2.24 meters, which is very explosive, and he is also a dunk machine. Healthy harrell is the most beautiful scenery on the court. The technical features of harrell mainly include the following aspects:
1. Defensive ability: harrell has excellent defensive ability, he can use the advantages of height and wingspan to block opponents, and has good rebounding ability.
2. Scoring ability: In addition to defense, harrell also performed well in scoring. He can score at the basket with his height and excellent hand feeling, and he can also project from the outside.
3. Passing ability: Although harrell mainly contributes to defense and scoring, his passing ability cannot be ignored. He can take advantage of his height to catch the ball at a high position and pass it to his teammates accurately.
After coming to the Lakers, he had enough time to recover, and he also had a chance to win his first championship next to James and Davis. The regular season can be harrell’s recovery stage. In the playoffs, when harrell comes back, I believe he can bring different vitality to the team.
