Anthony Davis again reiterated his long-term commitment to the New Orleans Pelicans.
"Look, I'm here. If I was thinking about leaving, I'd never re-sign [last summer]. I'm here to stay," Davis said.
Davis is in the first season of a five-year, $127 million extension with the Pelicans in 2015.
"I'm here to help this team win [and] put this franchise back on the map," Davis said Thursday.
Davis said he would be "very involved" in trying to convince free agent-to-be Jrue Holiday to re-sign with the Pelicans this summer.
"I'm doing that right now," Davis said. "I talk to Jrue all the time. He'll make his own decisions, but of course we like him here. ... We need him to continue to play well and then, at the end of the season, hopefully he decides to re-sign with us."
The Pelicans have been involved in trade talks this season for Jahlil Okafor and Brook Lopez.
"Our front office is doing everything to improve our team every day," Davis said. "My job's to go on the court and perform very well and [help] the team perform well where we can make that happen."
