As long as Anthony Davis is playing in the NBA, Bulls fans will be hoping he decides to come home at some point in his career.

Dwyane Wade did it at the end of his career, but Davis still has a chance to join the Bulls in his prime. In fact, that chance could come this summer for the Chicago native.

According to Yahoo's Chris Haynes, Davis turned down a contract extension offer from the Los Angeles Lakers. Haynes reported that the offer was a four-year, $146 million max contract. That means he's heading for free agency this July.

Davis is one of the premier big men in the game and will be highly sought after, but there's still a good chance he stays with the Lakers. He waived a no-trade clause to allow the trade from New Orleans to LA in the first place and the Lakers are 29-7 this season. By entering free agency, Davis can get a five-year deal.

So it's probably not likely Davis heads home in the summer, but that won't stop some Bulls fans from getting their hopes this summer when Davis hits the market.
