The Knicks’ plans of landing at least one superstar this offseason in NBA free agency went up in smoke, but Anthony Davis just gave them a glimmer of hope for next summer.
During an interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols, Davis was asked whether he views himself as a pillar for the Lakers over the next decade, as general manager Rob Pelinka described him Saturday during Davis’ introductory press conference last weekend. Davis’ answer was a potentially alarming one for the Lakers.
“Honestly Rachel, I’m just focused on this season. I don’t know what’s gonna happen,” Davis said. “I have one year here, so I’m gonna make the best of this year, and when that time comes around in the summer or whenever the season’s over — hopefully around mid-June after we just had this parade and I need a couple of days to think — then we can talk about that. But until then, I’ll try to do whatever I can to help this team win this year.”
