Davis has signed with agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports, one of the biggest names in the business. Davis, who still has two years remaining on his current contract with a player option in 2020/21, joins a pretty impressive client list for Paul. Other clients include LeBron JamesJohn WallEric Bledsoe, Ben Simmons, Trey Lyles, Nerlens Noel, and Miles Bridges, among several other NBA players. Paul is known for securing big money deals for his clients, including Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith of the Cleveland Cavaliers, along with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope of the Los Angeles Lakers. With Davis eligible for a five-year, $230 million super-max contract extension next summer, it's obvious he wants to secure the best of the best to handle the biggest financial situation of his life. Or could it be to set himself up for the future to make a massive career move? With DeMarcus Cousins leaving New Orleans this offseason, the Pelicans' foundation is rather bare beyond Davis. They aren't a major free agent destination, and they really don't have the desirable assets to make a trade that would jump New Orleans into championship contention. Davis could see this as an opportunity to seek a trade in the future, or set up a potential move in free agency to a larger market with championship potential. Say... Los Angeles with fellow Klutch client LeBron James? Speaking of the devil... Regardless, Davis means business by signing the best agent in the game. [mobile_ad]
