Anthony Davis is "tired of losing" and believes the New Orleans Pelicans finally have a roster to turn things around.
"We can't wait for the season to come and try to make some noise here in the loaded West," Davis said.
"We're doing everything, whether it's signing players, trading players ... whatever it is to just try to make sure that we try to be a winning organization," he added. "We have the tools right now to be successful. ... Right now, I think we look good on paper. So we've just got to figure it out."
The Pelicans made the playoffs in 2015 as the No. 8 seed and have missed it each of the past two seasons.
In the past six months, the Pelicans have traded for DeMarcus Cousins, re-signed Jrue Holiday and signed Rajon Rondo.
"When I first heard about Rondo, I thought it was a good situation for us," Davis said. "He knows when to get guys involved, when to make that pass."
Davis said he's supposed to meet with new assistant coach Chris Finch soon to start discussing the offensive scheme he envisions when New Orleans' top two frontcourt stars are playing together. Finch worked with Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic with the Nuggets.
Davis said the Pelicans want to emulate "how they ran their offensive package with those two bigs who are very skilled."
