KEY POINTS

  • Anthony Davis earned $9 million from endorsements in 2019
  • He is leading the Lakers in points per game this season
  • He is due for a max deal next year worth at least $200 million

Anthony Davis’s net worth stands at $30 million. His transfer to Los Angeles Lakers from the New Orleans Pelicans seems to be a good move business-wise as he scored a few endorsement deals along the way. 

Davis was acquired by the Lakers in the offseason via trade to beef up their lineup. He is now paired with LeBron James as the Lakers management vows to bring back the team to its glory days. With James and Davis, the team now stands on top of the Western Conference with 24-4 win-loss record.

The center is leading the team with 27.4 points per game average and also caroms 9.3 rebounds. According to Basketball Reference, his player efficiency rating this season ( 29.3) is also slightly higher than his career efficiency rating (27.5).

Davis, also known as The Brow and AD, has two years left on his five-year deal. The last year is a player option which means he is eligible to demand and take in at least $200 million on a max deal. If he goes on to win his first title with the Lakers, expect his salary and endorsement deals to bump a notch higher. After all, he is under the Klutch Sports Group which is managed by Rich Paul, James’s close friend and business partner. 

Aside from his basketball salary, AD is also making serious dough via sponsorship deals. Nike signed him in a multiyear deal, although he has yet to have his own signature shoe unlike Nike stablemates James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Aside from Nike, he also represents ExxonMobil, Foot Locker, Red Bull and Saks Inc., per Forbes. Davis also recently starred in a Beats By Dre commercial.

The Lakers big man sits on the 39th spot in the highest paid athletes list by Forbes. His salary is at $25.6 million, on top of the money from endorsements, which reached $9 million. With a max deal in line next summer, the future is certainly brighter for AD. 

Davis is slightly ahead of fellow NBA stars Klay Thompson, Gordon Hayward, Carmelo Anthony and Kyle Lowry in the money rankings. 

The six-time All-Star drives a Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe which costs between $118,036 to $157,014. He is only 26 years old, which makes it even scarier for opposing teams as he has yet to hit his peak. If teams want him next year, they better be ready to open the war chest because he will not come cheap.
