Davis is the headliner on a roster that has been one of the NBA’s youngest teams, something Perkins factored into his decision to sign with New Orleans. Perkins is the oldest Pelicans player, with every other member of the squad in his 20s. Davis is only 22, while Tyreke Evans and Jrue Holiday are just 25. “You looked at every position from AD to Jrue to Eric (Gordon) to Tyreke and you just saw that they had a nice core, young guys that were good at every position,” Perkins said. “Raw talent. All they needed was a couple teaching points on the little things and professionalism. They had that (professionalism) already, because they work hard. But on the court, they needed a leader. The leader is not always the best player on the team, but more so the vocal side.”
Sumerlin also spent time this summer in L.A. with Pelicans veterans such as Anthony Davis, Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon, Jrue Holiday and Quincy Pondexter. In a July conference call with Pelicans season ticket holders, Alvin Gentry said Evans has lost 12 pounds. “Tyreke has lost weight and is leaner,” Sumerlin said. “Eric looks great too and has gotten leaner. He has a strength coach (in California) who I am close with and has done a great job with Eric. Everyone is looking good and guys are excited about the season.”
