Anthony Davis would ‘definitely’ consider Bulls homecoming if given opportunity
Anthony Davis is just about to start his first season in Los Angeles, but a homecoming to Chicago could still be in play at some point in his career.
Speaking Friday at Kenwood Academy’s Nike Rise camp, the Lakers star was asked if he would at all be open to eventually playing for his hometown Bulls.
“I mean, [this is] definitely hometown,” Davis replied, per KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. “If the opportunity ever presents itself and when that time comes, I’d definitely consider it.
“No matter if it’s hot or freezing cold in the gym or raining outside, whatever, any basketball player from Chicago, it means a lot more to us because we are a basketball city,” the All-Star big added. “And we are the Mecca of basketball. You can quote me on that.”
Davis was born on the South Side of Chicago and attended high school locally at Perspectives Charter School before heading to Kentucky for his college ball.
While Davis could have just been giving a diplomatic response to a question asked of him in Chicago, he did grow up rooting for the Bulls and should have a lot of seasons left in his career to potentially make a homecoming happen.
