During a Friday sitdown interview with New Orleans Pelicans radio broadcaster Sean Kelley, the All-Star power forward noted that through strength training, he has upped his weight to 238 pounds. The 21-year-old also acknowledged that he still may be growing (Davis’ lengthy video interview will be available on Pelicans.com beginning Monday). “I’m up to 238 right now. It’s all muscle, and that’s what I need,” said Davis, who was 230 at the start of the 2013-14 season. “I want to get stronger, so that when I post up, it’s a lot easier for me. I think it’s going to translate to the season, just my mentality, knowing that I’m a lot stronger and a lot better. It’s going to make me more aggressive.” NBA.com

With his back and ankle injuries that forced the Pelicans management to shut down his second season with five games remaining, Davis is back to work, participating with teammates in the Pelicans' voluntary offseason workouts at the team's Metairie headquarters. After playing this past season at less than 230 pounds, Davis said he is up to 237 pounds. The new physique gives Davis the look more of a power forward than he did in his first two NBA seasons. "Right now it's just physical appearance," he said. "I haven't put it to use yet." New Orleans Times-Picayune
