"Right now, my focus is on this year, and trying to figure out how I can help this team, and help the organization become a championship team".
"I know we'll talk about it and do whatever we can to definitely make this team a championship team next season", Davis said, before correcting himself: "This season". LeBron is known for making big men play up to their full potential and is going to have a field day with both Anthony Davis and Boogie in the frontcourt. "But I knew he wanted to be closer to home".
Davis has a strong preference to play power forward, and conveyed to Pelinka he wanted to be surrounded by centers who alleviate some of the pressure off him, as well as shooters. He returns to the Lakers after averaging 9.2 points and 8.0 assists per game with Los Angeles a year ago.

It was better that I made a quick decision for everybody because they're in pre-season now. "[It was] not for me". And the former defender was unhappy with the amount of time he was given at Goodison Park.
In seven years as No. 23, Davis scored over 11,000 points, earned six All-Star selections, three All-NBA selections, three All-Defensive Team Selections and was the league's blocks leader three times.
"Our stance from the very beginning was we very much love this partnership with Kawhi and we are here to support him in any decision that me makes", Cassidy added.
James had planned to give Davis the No. 23 jersey and switch back to the No. 6 jersey he wore with the Heat.
Just when you think this insane, crazy National Basketball Association offseason is going to slow down a little, Russell Westbrook gets traded to the Houston Rockets. I think that was a great process. I think it's better.
"I've had a chance to play with him, play against him, compete and now compete with him", Green said. Since that did not happen, LeBron and Davis would have to wait it out until the next production deadline takes place. "We are thrilled to welcome two extremely talented and efficient players in Shai and Danilo".
