The Los Angeles Lakers newcomer Anthony Davis says he ‘can count on’ his former New Orleans teammate point guard Rajon Rondo:

“Rondo’s a leader on the floor, leader off the floor and spending time with him that one year in New Orleans was definitely huge for me. He was able to help me out as I transitioned. He’s been on several teams, so he’s experienced that before. Him and LeBron have been very helpful in the transition process and especially this first day being with a new group,” Davis said.

This past season, Davis averaged 25.9 points, 12.0 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 3.9 assists per game for the Pelicans. Rondo, meanwhile, in his debut season with the Lakers averaged nine points, five boards and eight assists per contest.
