Even though Anthony Davis didn’t play in Sunday’s 86-80 victory by Team USA over Argentina in its final Olympic exhibition game, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some Anthony Davis news.
The Times-Picayune of New Orleans team got a chance to ask Hersey Hawkins, player development director for the Portland Trail Blazers, and some other NBA folks about Davis. I loved what he had to say about Davis because he understood he can do more than play defense.
Here’s what Hawkins, who played 13 years in the NBA, said:
“I saw him play in college a few times, and he’s going to be a franchise-changer. I think of course, defensively, everybody knows what he does with blocking and changing shots. But this guy has skills in handling the ball pretty well, so he’s definitely going to be someone to reckon with for years to come.”
