Former San Diego State basketball player Josh Davis began his NBA Summer League with the Charlotte Hornets in superb fashion, averaging 10 points and 16 rebounds through the first two games. But Davis saw just 38:22 of action in the Hornets' next two games--likely due to the return of big man Cody Zeller--and scored 6 points and grabbed just 10 rebounds during those games.
Yesterday against the New Orleans Hornets, however, Davis played significant minutes (24:53) and helped lead the Hornets past the Pelicans 104-75. And, as if on cue, Davis recorded another double-double--this time with 14 points and 12 rebounds. He scored those 14 points on 4-of-6 shooting and going 6-of-10 from the charity stripe (he knocked down his first five from the line).
Davis also grabbed 12 boards, seven of which were offensive. Those offensive rebounds led directly to 10 Hornets points.
With his performance against New Orleans, Davis brings his summer league averages up to 8.0 points per game, 10.8 rebounds per game (6.0 offensive rebounds) and a +15.80 player impact estimate--all numbers hard to keep off an NBA roster.
