Anthony Davis made 22-of-23 free throws en route to 37 points on Sunday, adding 15 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in an exhibition win vs. the Bulls. Fantasy owners have to be thrilled to see AD sinking free throws with ease. That continues a trend from last year, when he shot 80.2 percent on a career-high 8.6 attempts per game. New Orleans' offense revolved almost entirely around Davis, DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday tonight, all of whom should have huge usage rates this year. The injury risk is unavoidable, but Davis' unknown upside makes him a tempting first-round target.

Anthony Davis had 24 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer on 6-of-15 shooting in 33 minutes of Tuesday's preseason loss to the Bulls. Davis looked great running the floor with DeMarcus Cousins and is going to have a monster season as long as he can stay healthy. Health is always the concern for AD, but he's fine right now and ready to roll. He's an automatic first-round pick, as usual.

Anthony Davis was holding his right shoulder in a scrimmage on Saturday, but did return to action. Here we go, but again it's minor according to coach Alvin Gentry. "It’s nothing. Just one of those deals, it’s a scrimmage and there’s no real reason to stick him back out there," Gentry said. We've seen Davis go to the locker room perhaps more than any player in the NBA last season, and he has hurt his shoulder before. If you are going to take AD in the first round of a fantasy draft, just know that a lot of stress probably comes with it.

Anthony Davis confirmed that he wants to remain in New Orleans and believes the Pelicans can make a playoff run in 2017-18. Davis acknowledged that he had heard trade rumors about potentially getting shipped to Boston, but has ignored them since getting confirmation that the rumors were unfounded. "I understand it's a business, but if I don't hear anything from [GM Dell Demps] or my agent, I don't pay attention to it," said Davis. He also added that he thinks the Pels have enough talent to make some noise this season. "We definitely believe we have enough pieces on paper to make the playoffs. Not just make it, but actually make a run in the playoffs."

Anthony Davis believes that the Pelicans can "make a run in the playoffs" next season. "[A playoff berth is] what we are expecting," said Davis. "We definitely believe we have enough pieces on paper to make the playoffs, and not just make it, but actually make a run in the playoffs. Everyone is excited and everybody is prepared. It starts in training camp." It'll be interesting to see what Davis and DeMarcus Cousins can do in their first full season together, but Davis is right that on paper, New Orleans looks like they have enough talent to make a solid postseason run.

Anthony Davis said he's very excited about the addition of Rajon Rondo and believes they will work together well. "He and I will do very well in pick-and-rolls, especially the way I dive to the basket, or I can pick-and-pop," Davis said. "He’s great at finding guys at the right times with the ball. Anyone who’s been in pick-and-rolls with him has been very successful. Hopefully we can do the same thing." Davis' ceiling in fantasy isn't as high next to DeMarcus Cousins, as his usage rate dropped from 32.7 to 27.4 when DMC arrived in New Orleans. While he's still a lock to go in the first round, he always comes with a lot of risk because of the durability concerns.

The Pelicans are close to hiring assistant Chris Finch to their coaching staff. It's an interesting move for the Pelicans to add the former Nuggets assistant. Finch is somewhat responsible for Nikola Jokic becoming such an amazing offensive weapon and he's also part of the reason the Nuggets offense thrived in the second half. To be fair to Jokic, he's been an incredible passer since his first Summer League, so it's not like Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins will transform overnight. Regardless, this is positive news for both the Pelicans bigs.
