Former Wildcats Anthony Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns have been named to All-NBA teams, as Davis was named to the First Team and Towns was named to the Third Team.
This is the second time in three years that Davis has made an All-NBA team in three years, which qualifies him for a super-max contract. Bobby Marks of ESPN projects that it’d be worth $230 million, and his cap hit in year one would be $39.7 million. That’d be the largest contract in NBA history. He’d be able to sign it next off-season.
Anthony Davis has now met the super max criteria (All-NBA in 2 out of 3 seasons) and is eligible to sign the largest contract in NBA history next summer (2019). The extension projects to be worth $230 million with a cap hit in 2020-21 starting at $39.7 million.— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) May 24, 2018
Davis averaged 28.1 points, 11.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game this season while leading the New Orleans Pelicans to the playoffs and a first-round sweep of the Portland Trailblazers. He is a finalist for MVP.
Towns also may have earned himself a huge payday. He’s now eligible for a five-year, $188 million deal. Towns averaged 21.3 PPG, 12.3 RPG and 1.4 BPG this year while playing a major role in the Minnesota Timberwolves’ run to the playoffs.
