“I don’t really care what anyone says,” the four-time All-Star said. “We know what we’re doing, especially having an entire training camp with me, (Cousins), Jrue (Holiday), (Rajon) Rondo, and all these guys we have on our team, we feel like we have a shot against anybody. That’s our mindset coming in. We’re not worried about all the white noise and what other people are saying, more so what we’ve got to do in the locker room and on the court together.”
Rondo officially signed with New Orleans on Thursday, an addition that gives the Pelicans four starters who’ve been All-Stars in the recent past (DeMarcus Cousins has three All-Star appearances, while Jrue Holiday made the midseason showcase game in 2013). Davis – who like Rondo and Cousins is a University of Kentucky product – described the acquisition as a “no-brainer” from the team’s standpoint.
The New Orleans Pelicans, who re-signed Jrue Holiday to a five-year, $126 million contract and inked a one-year deal with Rajon Rondo, plan to have both point guards in the starting lineup this upcoming season, according to head coach Alvin Gentry. “I like Jrue off the ball to start the game as a scorer. I like Rondo being on the floor as a leader,” Gentry said on the Dunc and Holder podcast. “Obviously, Jrue’s going to play some where he’s the primary ball handler. I spoke to Jrue at length about this and I think it’s something that can really help our team.”
