Davis visits New Orleans, his expected NBA home
“He has this great big smile on his face and he has this personality that I hope that he can stay enjoying the process, because he’s going to have enough time during the rest of his career when the pressure’s going to come and he’ll have to make big plays in big games,” Demps said.
Demps didn’t want to discuss whether the Hornets saw Davis as a center or power forward in the NBA, noting that he will be interested to see how the slender 19-year-old player develops not only his skills but his body as he goes from NBA rookie to seasoned veteran.
Davis‘ itinerary in New Orleans included lunch with new Hornets owner Tom Benson _ also the longtime owner of the NFL’s Saints _ at Saints headquarters in Metairie. Team officials also planned to show Davis around the metro area.
Davis apparently has a lot to learn about the city. He said he hadn’t seen much beyond Bourbon Street before this trip and that the extent of his experience with local cuisine went little beyond Popeye’s, the fried chicken chain that started in south Louisiana.
“If I get picked here, of course it’ll feel like home,” Davis said. “But right now, not as much.”
