Anthony Davis is back in his hometown of Chicago for the Los Angeles Lakers’ game on Tuesday against the Chicago Bulls, so you can imagine that people had questions to ask him about his looming free agency.
During an event at Perspectives Charter School where Davis surprised the school’s boys and girls basketball teams, he was asked about possibly joining the Bulls in the future. His response did not rule the idea out.
“Honestly, it’s nothing like playing at home. I don’t know … I mean, I am a free agent next year, but we’ll see. It’s a possibility,” Davis said before the event’s host saved him by requesting another question.
Davis would soon praise the city when speaking on the NBA All-Star Game in February.
“Chicago is a fun city, and as of late, people started doubting that just because of all the stuff that’s going on, but hopefully that weekend we’re able to show people why Chicago is as great as we know that it is,” Davis said. “All-Star is always a fun city and when you bring everybody back into the Mecca of basketball, it’s always going to be great, so I’m excited for it and hopefully I’m able to be another All-Star and play in front of this home crowd, but I’ll be here regardless.”
The power forward is set to be the biggest free agent next offseason and his decision will ultimately come down to how this season with the Lakers turns out as he plays alongside LeBron James.
