Anthony Davis explains vision for his future with the Pelicans

(WVUE) -

One year ago, Anthony Davis was accommodating his new teammate, DeMarcus Cousins, into the Pelicans' offense. Currently, Davis is adjusting to life without Cousins, who ruptured his Achilles nine games ago. In his absence, the Pelicans are just 4-5, 31-26, placed 8th in the Western Conference.

While the team is just three games back of third place in the conference, Davis is aware that his chance of making a deep playoff run are not encouraging.

"I don't go into any year saying I don't want to be here, or nothing like that," he said. "Of course, at some point, you want to win. I feel like we're getting the right pieces in here. I feel like our front office is doing a better job. They're doing the best job they can do as far as getting players in here. I feel like we're moving in the right direction but you do have to take it year by year and just see where it goes. That's how I'm approaching it."

Cousins is set to become a free agent this summer, while Davis is still under contract for three more seasons.

"Of course, Cousins is a big factor, what he's going to do," Davis said. "But I'm here until 2021 and then make decision from there. I don't plan on leaving the next couple years or anything like that. I have always said that I want to be here and that's still true."

Davis' only playoff experience was a 4-0 sweep at the hands of the eventual-champion Warriors in the spring of 2015.
