SLAM: By getting younger, you guys did lose two pieces of your core in Ryan Anderson and Eric Gordon. They got offers they couldn’t turn down from Houston, but was it tough to see them go with them being here since you entered the League? Anthony Davis: It was their decisions. They were free agents and they tested the market. I didn’t talk to them or have any idea what their thinking was. Both of those guys are exceptional talents. I have nothing against them. When I see them, we’re still going to kick it like we’re on the same team. Those guys are great players. Both of them can score the ball, can shoot and I’m happy that they’re back on the same team again. I just can’t wait to play them. Those are our first two preseason games—against Houston in China. It’s going to be fun playing against them guys. They’re going to know what we run. We’re going to know what they like to do, so it’s going to be fun and I’m excited about playing them.

A top priority for new Rockets forward Ryan Anderson is proving he is worthy of his four-year contract worth $80 million. “The first thing that comes to mind is with much given, much is expected, and I’m going to do the best job I possibly can to live up to that deal and exceed it.” Anderson said in a telephone interview with FOX 26 Sports. “It’s more money than you can ever imagine. I’m in shock. I’m very humbled.”
Mark Berman: New Rockets forward Ryan Anderson: “A big part of Houston’s pitch to me was the fact that guys like Trevor Ariza were getting 200 wide open three-point shots. For me, I haven’t had a wide open three-point shot in a long time.” (key to that is James Harden) “I know that the best player that I can play around and that’s going to help me and I’m going to help him, is somebody that’s going to be able to attack the paint and attract a whole lot of people. Obviously, everybody knows how much of a force he is going to the basket, how talented he is, how dominant he is.”
