The Los Angeles Lakers big man Anthony Davis says he is excited about the opportunity to rejoin former Pelicans teammate DeMarcus Cousins and explains why he likes playing with him, per Silver Screen and Roll:

“Before he came to New Orleans I knew him off the floor very well, and then on the floor, all the media attention he got of being ‘emotional’. I didn’t really see that. Me and him are really close, and I kind of told him before, ‘we got one goal’, so he understood.

I think when you’re in a situation like this, it was rarely talked about him being ‘emotional’. So when you come to another situation like this, I don’t think it’s going to be a problem at all, because we have one goal, and that’s to win.

I love playing with DeMarcus. Obviously we didn’t want it to end, but obviously he had to move on and do what’s best for him and his family. Now we’ve got the opportunity to reunite in a great situation, so I’m excited about that,” Davis said.
