Anthony Davis Rising Star

Anthony Davis is developing, however it’s only his second year in the NBA. The power forward/center for the New Orleans Pelicans is maturing quite nicely for someone who has Kevin Garnett’s game, but doesn’t quite have the shooting touch for a big man yet. He is making strides when it comes to setting pick-and-rolls and staying low on the weak side when his point guard attracts attention when he is penetrating in the lane. Davis knows how to rotate in the lane, because now he can move around in the paint and knows how to avoid the 3-second violation because he understands he can’t be in the lane for more than three seconds. He knows how to move after setting a screen and when he sets the pick, his point guard understands where he’s going to move and he sends Davis the ball on his way to the hoop. Give him a few more years and Davis is a solid rotational player who knows his fundamentals in the Pelicans’ lineup.
