The New Orleans Pelicans and Anthony Davis, on the first day possible, have agreed to terms on a mammoth contract extension that should become the league's richest when it goes into effect, according to league sources.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Pelicans and Davis have agreed to a five-year extension estimated at nearly $145 million that will kick in starting with the 2016-17 season and run through Davis' 28th birthday.
First-round picks from the 2012 NBA draft like Davis are eligible to negotiate contract extensions now through Oct. 31. But like any free-agent deal around the league, they can't be formally signed until July 9, when a league wide moratorium on roster business is lifted. Davis tweeted he had agreed to the deal shortly after the window for negotiations opened after midnight ET.

Campbell racked up 8.0 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and an interception. On special teams play, he blocked 3 field goals during the season.
