"It is a lot to be 21, so much is expected of you and you’ve got to do it," Davis says. "You’ve got to live up to it, that’s the hardest thing about it. I talk to my friends and they’re graduating school and about to have parties and all this stuff. I’m like, ‘I’ve got to work.’ It comes with the territory." SB Nation

Williams has taken criticism for everything from his strategies to his rotations, but he’s been consistent with what he terms his ‘responsibility’ to coach Davis. A father of five and a deeply religious man, Williams doesn’t obsess over what people have to say about his young star or their expectations. "I don’t listen to it," Williams tells me in his office after a practice. "When I turn the TV on I turn the volume down. I never read the stuff that people write because to me it clouds your focus. We have a gameplan, we have a list of things we’re trying to do with our team, with Anthony from an individual standpoint, we stick to it and we talk to each other about what we need to do, and we leave it at that. The other people, they’re not here every day. SB Nation

Tonight on “The Grantland Basketball Hour” the trio of Bill Simmons, Jalen Rose and Ryen Russillo unveiled and discussed the final 25 players on Simmons long running NBA Trade Value list. And for the first time since 2006 someone other than LeBron James was named number one. Anthony Davis. The case for Davis is easy to make. At just 21 Davis is already one of the three best players in basketball. Unlike most of the other guys in the conversation Davis is still on his rookie deal, meaning that even when his extension does kick in, in the coming years he still will be making less money than most great players.

Unable to overcome not having Davis, the Pelicans were routed 107-72 by the Chicago Bulls at the Smoothie King Center. Davis landed hard on his right shoulder after a dunk with 5:28 remaining in the second quarter. It appeared that Davis couldn't catch his balance after hanging on the rim after the dunk. Davis stayed in the game for about a minute before leaving to get his shoulder checked by the team's training staff in the locker room. After halftime the Pelicans listed Davis as questionable to return with a right shoulder injury, but shortly changed their update to not returning. New Orleans Times-Picayune

Pelicans are not going to re-sign backup point guard Nate Wolters for the remainder of the season with his second, 10-day contract expiring on Tuesday, a league source confirmed.
