Anthony Davis Adds Weight

According to Nola.com, Anthony Davis, 220 pounds last season, has added 10-12 pounds and plans to add 15 more.  This weight increase hints at an increased proportion of minutes at center for Davis, who played mostly power forward last season.  Added upper body strength should help Davis on both offense and defense, helping him finish through contact, gain and deny position, and set more effective screens.  Davis’s most noticeable “flaw” coming out of college was a wiry frame that placed him at a disadvantage against more physically developed NBA players.  Davis appears to be addressing these concerns, and will likely maintain his quickness in the process.
