The now-Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Jason Kidd thinks big man Anthony Davis “has the total package” to be a dominant player on both ends of the floor for the Lakers:

Per ClutchPoints: “When you talk about Anthony Davis, he can put the ball on the floor, he can pass, we all know he can shoot the three, he can post up, defensively block shots, rebound. He has the total package.

That’s why he’s one of the best players in the world. And so for us to be able to have him with LeBron (James) and (Kyle) Kuzma and (Rajon) Rondo … it just makes it that much easier. This will be his first time playing with someone like LeBron,” Kidd said.

This past season, Davis averaged 25.9 points, 12.0 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 3.9 assists per game, while shooting at 51.7 percent from the floor and 33.1 percent from three.
