But he was also on few peoples' radar coming out of high school, receiving just one Division I scholarship offer to North Carolina State University, according to ESPN. And he proved people wrong very quickly, averaging a double-double en route to winning All-Conference USA First-Team honors for his 2012-13 season at Tulane. Then he averaged the country's 15th most rebounds per game in the regular season en route to winning the 2013-14 Mountain West Newcomer of the Year and an appearance in the Sweet 16.
So it came as no surprise when Davis placed himself on those NBA radars through his hard work and earned workouts with at least four NBA teams. One of those teams being his local Charlotte Hornets.
Apparently the Hornets liked what they saw, and Davis will now have the opportunity to earn a 2014-15 roster spot through the NBA Summer League.
The Summer League is from July 11 to July 1 in Las Vegas. Charlotte's first game is against the Golden State Warriors on July 11 at 5:30 p.m. PT at the Thomas and Mack Center. You can see all NBA Summer League games by downloading the NBA Summer League Live app.
