Pelicans Star Anthony Davis Plans to Play in 2019 FIBA World Cup

It has been a whirlwind of a season for one Anthony Davis, but instead of taking a break, he plans on balling some more.

Already on minute restriction and entering an offseason of uncertainty, ‘The Brow’ hopes to still play for Team USA this summer in the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China. Davis has previously played for the team in the 2012 Olympics and 2014 FIBA World Cup.

“Yes, I plan to play,” Davis said to the FIBA World Basketball television program. “I like playing for USA Basketball, playing for the USA team, representing my country, so I plan on playing.”

Davis’ future with the New Orleans Pelicans remains murky as the superstar’s agent voiced earlier in the season that Davis has no plans of signing to the supermax this offseason. Not letting his present situation with his team affect his judgement, the big man hopes to help the United States take gold this summer.

“Those times were very special,” he said of representing the USA. “I’d never played international basketball before. And 2012 (Olympics), I didn’t really get to play, I was kind of like, you know, the guy who was just cheering everybody on.

“But that experience helped me in 2014, (being) able to help lead those guys and play my part, and getting me used to playing international basketball. And it was a fun experience, and just being able to represent the country and win gold, it’s something I look forward to every time.”

The Team USA roster has not yet been finalized.
