RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Davis continued his rapid rise to becoming one of the best players in the NBA with another standout season in 2014-15. New Orleans' franchise player set career highs in every meaningful category, averaging 36 minutes per game over 68 contests. Playing most of the season as a 21-year-old, Davis averaged 24.4 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.5 steals, and 2.9 blocks per game. To put those in perspective, Davis led the league on a per-game basis in blocked shots, finished fourth in points, the top-10 in rebounding and field goal percentage (54%), and behind just Paul Millsap in steals per game among power forwards. Entering his fourth season in the league, Davis is still actually younger than 2015 first-round picks Jerian Grant, Delon Wright, and Larry Nance, Jr., while just a few months older than lottery picks Frank Kaminsky and Willie Cauley-Stein. New head coach Alvin Gentry was hired by the Pelicans to ratchet up the offense, which should only mean good things for a dynamic force like Davis. Expect the Kentucky product to remain the focal point of the offensive attack in New Orleans while continuing to terrorize opponents on defense. The only thing that can stop Davis is himself, as he has never played more than 68 games in a season.

2014-15

Davis comes into his third NBA season with sky-high expectations. He made his first All-Star game last season, averaging 20.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.3 steals, and a league-leading 2.8 blocks in 35 minutes per game. Davis managed to do all that damage while shooting an efficient 52 percent from the floor and 79 percent from the free-throw line. The 21-year-old hasn't reached his peak yet, and seemingly the only thing that can stop him in 2014-15 is his health. Davis missed 15 games last season with back, ankle, finger, and hand issues and only played in 64 games his rookie season with various ailments. He put on muscle this summer to try to avoid injuries, but it remains to be seen how his body will respond after spending the summer with USA Basketball in Spain for the World Cup. Assuming he's healthy, Davis should only continue to improve this year. On a per-36 minute basis, he improved in every counting stat last season, with the exception of steals, where he dropped from 1.5 steals per 36 his rookie year to 1.4 steals as a sophomore. The health of Jrue Holiday, Eric Gordon, and others may detract from Davis' lofty scoring totals, but he should remain the focal point of the Pelicans offense while continuing to anchor the defense by blocking shots and snapping up rebounds.

2013-14

Davis had an injury-riddled rookie campaign, managing to play just 64 games. Despite this, he displayed magnificent potential on both ends of the court, scoring in a wide variety of ways and defensively matching up against some of the top forwards in the league. Davis finished the 2012-13 season with averages of 13.5 points (52 percent from the field, 75 percent from the line), 8.2 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.2 steals and 1.8 blocks in 29 minutes per game. Heading into his sophomore year, Davis's potential is sky-high, as his athleticism and knack for the ball on both ends of the court could elevate his game to the elite level as early as this coming season. He was able to put up stellar numbers last season despite playing just 29 minutes per game. With Davis being the clear cornerstone of the Pelicans, and with a new point guard partner Jrue Holiday taking the ball at the helm, one can only imagine how effective Davis can become in his sophomore campaign if given 30-plus minutes per game. He is more than likely to be a valuable fantasy asset in all formats as long as he can remain healthy.

2012-13

Davis was the prize of the 2012 draft and comes to New Orleans brimming with confidence after winning the NCAA title and then returning home from the London Olympics with a gold medal. At 220 lbs., the 19-year-old Davis will need to bulk up to withstand the crowded areas near the hoop, even though he’s already considered a good defender. His post up game--heck, his overall offensive game--needs improvement, but he should be able to contribute right away as a rebounder and shot-blocker in the NBA. Improvement will come, but he won’t be finely tuned in just one offseason. Davis showed he can finish pretty effectively at the University of Kentucky, which will help in the pick-and-roll crazy world of the NBA. He joins Ryan Anderson, Robin Lopez, Hakim Warrick and Jason Smith all looking for minutes. Davis and Anderson should get the bulk of the minutes at power forward. If the Hornets want to push the ball, Davis is athletic enough to do that. As a finisher, he’ll thrive in an offense that pushes the ball, while disguising the things he doesn’t do well. Kentucky coach John Calipari spoke a lot about Davis sacrificing the finer parts of his offensive skill set to help fit into the mold of Kentucky’s team plan last season, and there’s been some talk that Davis’ early years in high school as a point guard could mean he has the handles and perimeter game to contribute in several aspects of the game that he wasn’t asked to play a part in with Kentucky. If those assertions prove true, Davis could have a higher ceiling in the NBA than what he showed at Kentucky.
