New Orleans Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry has been working with star big man Anthony Davis on expanding his range, and Davis seems to have bought in.
In an interview with SLAM Magazine, Davis said that he's been shooting at least 300 corner three's a day in the offseason and is comfortable with his shot from beyond the arc:
"I'm going to mix it up. I love playing down low, but at the same time, if the opportunity is there; I'm definitely going to take them. That's one thing for sure that coach Gentry has told me—“Shoot the ball,” “Let it go.” I've been working on it and I'm very confident in my game. I've shot three's all my life. I didn't really need to shoot them over the past few years as much, but I'm never going to turn down shooting threes, especially if the coach tells me he wants me to shoot them. It's something that I've definitely been working on. I definitely plan on utilizing it this year."
