Most of the top names in the NBA have already secured new contracts with their respective teams. All that is except for Anthony Davis who has yet to agree to a one-year deal. But it appears the holdup is not because the 27-year-old is undecided. Rather, it may be part of a bigger plan with the name of Giannis Antetokounmpo written all over it.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN believes that the delay in signing a new deal on the part of Davis is part of an even bigger plan next offseason. Davis may be waiting to sign to give the Lakers a chance to recruit the Greek Freak next offseason.

As of this writing, there is no official word on how much and how long Davis’ next contract will be. But a possibility is seeing the top pick of the 2012 NBA Draft agreeing to a new deal and then opting out via player-option after the 2020-21 season.

Worth noting is that LeBron James could opt out as well, giving the Lakers some flexibility in luring the two-time NBA MVP into the fold.

In a way, it appears to be a long shot for the Lakers to get anything done here. But if that were to happen, the Lakers would undoubtedly become a super team with the three stars in tow.

However, the Lakers are not the only ones who have Antetokounmpo in mind. Bam Adebayo and the Miami Heat could be thinking the same thing with the 23-year-old center also yet to sign with the South Beach squad.

Adebayo could also wait for a year before signing a new max contract. If he were to do so today, it would dash any hope of possibly plucking Antetokounmpo from the Milwaukee Bucks.

Antetokounmpo has yet to sign a new deal with the Bucks, a reason why multiple NBA teams are planning. The Bucks have been trying to take in key players to provide the four-time All-Star with added help.

The Bucks had a good regular season but disappointed in the recently concluded NBA bubble playoffs. They were able to take in Jrue Holiday, D.J. Augustin and Bobby Portis on separate deals, hopefully enough for the Bucks to perform better, ESPN reported. But the question now is that will these new additions be enough to catapult Milwaukee to the NBA finals at the least?
