Retired NBA Champion-turned-ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins joined Mike Greenberg on Get Up to discuss LeBron James’s two-year/$85 million extension, Anthony Davis’s five-year/$190 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Houston Rockets and Washington Wizards coming to terms on a deal for guards Russell Westbrook and John Wall.
James is coming off of his fourth title and at age 35 last season, averaged 25.3 points, a league-high 10.2 assists, 7.8 rebounds, and 1.2 steals while shooting at 49.3 percent from the field.
Last season, Davis averaged 26.1 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.3 blocks, and 1.5 steals per game. He shot 50 percent from the floor, 33 percent from 3-point range, and a career-best 84.6 percent from the free-throw line.
Westbrook averaged 27.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 7.0 assists during his lone season with the Rockets in 2019-20. Meanwhile, Wall missed all of last season while recovering from a torn Achilles.
