5 Big Men New Orleans Pelicans Should Pair with Anthony Davis

It's clear that the New Orleans Pelicans need to find Anthony Davis a real frontcourt partner. While Ryan Anderson is an excellent perimeter shooter, he doesn't free up Davis to do all the things defensively that he can, and Anderson doesn't help on the defensive glass nearly enough.

The Pelicans have trotted out all kinds of players next to Davis, like Jason Smith, Alexis Ajinca and others, but that perfect fit hasn't been found yet.

That's in part because Davis is so versatile and multitalented.

"There’s nothing he can’t do on the court. He’s clearly a David Robinson type," Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra told John Reid of The Times-Picayune. "He blocks shots, changes shots, the offensive rebounding and then you can see his skill level. He can shoot and catch and go off a drive. He’s a great kind of talent."

Davis can mesh with just about any center or power forward, but the goal is to accentuate his abilities and have him playing without limitations.

With that in mind, here are five players who could be available via trade or free agency and look great next to Davis in New Orleans.
