While Davis made his share of good memories during seven seasons - and six All-Star selections - in New Orleans, the Pelicans will be eager to forget the lame-duck, unceremonious manner in which his tenure with the club ended. Obviously, this saga likely hurt both teams this season and now, neither will be making the postseason.
"I didn't choose it", he said, per Fletcher Mackel of WDSU. With that being said, it's not as believable that a 26-year-old grown man doesn't have any say over his wardrobe.
"So no, in 31 years I hadn't had anything that would equal this kind of fallout".
"Obviously my time here was wonderful. You know me to just tell the truth". You never know what might happen later in your career.
Davis showed up to Tuesday's game wearing a "That's all folks!" "What's going on with the Lakers - I got a lot of other stuff to worry about".
The person they hire will oversee the Davis trade, the next draft and could decide whether to retain coach Alvin Gentry, who has two years left under contract and expressed optimism he'd be given an opportunity to stay.
"I haven't really sat back and thought about any of that yet", he continued.
As he said earlier this season, Davis reiterated that he doesn't have any regrets about how everything played out with his request. The fans always supported me.it was an unbelievable time here. "It's something I'll go back and look back and reflect on and if it has, I'll say to myself and the people around and if something happens again, see where we can do better and go from there".
