Yea, but we "needed" to make the playoffs this year, so we might as well not even offer him an extension and just let him walk because Monty apologists!!!!

The Monty love is too great in this thread.
What's the soonest he could leave if he wanted to? Or I guess, like when is the year before the last year he can begin to opt out? How many years do we have left to prove to him we'll be a contender?

Rookies typically play for 4 years before getting their 2nd contract. When the time comes for their 2nd contract they are RESTRICTED Free Agents, not Unrestricted Free Agents, that freedom doesn't come until their 3rd contract. In Anthony Davis' case he is going to get an extension offer like Derrick Rose and Blake Griffin got, around 5 years $95 million. He will happily sign that meaning it's not time to panic until he has about 2 years left on that deal. Basically the team has about 5 more years to get the team in place before it's time to start worrying. Teams have 9 total years of control, but if they screw it up things start falling apart around year 7.

Now, as it turns out, the injury issues have continued (although not as much this season). And he doesn't have the explosiveness he once had. And, yeah, his contract sucks and he'll be hard to unload. But that one signing alone is not a fireable offense, imo.
