While Davis opted to waive his $4 million trade kicker, it was unfortunate the team failed to sign Leonard, but the talented big man said he was willing to help the team out however possible.Beyond that, Davis heaped praise on the Lakers roster that’s been built over the recent weeks. Davis told reporters during his presser that he’d put the roster “up against anybody” in the league. Specifically, he cited believing the Lakers would come out victorious in a seven-game series.At another point during the press conference, Davis was asked about the leadership dynamic and specifically how it’d work between himself and LeBron. While he stated that the two hadn’t talked about that and it’ll happen naturally, he also pointed out that any player on the team can step up and say anything if they’re all trying to reach the same goal. Davis even cited Rajon Rondo as an “excellent leader” while talking to reporters.Anthony Davis Admits Hoping to Play Power ForwardOne of the many interesting comments which Davis made about his role and the Lakers roster was the topic of playing at power forward vs. center. As SB Nation’s Harrison Faigen reported, the talented 26-year-old addressed his interest in playing power forward over center.“I like playing the four, I don’t really like playing the five.” Davis told reporters.Beyond that, general manager Rob Pelinka explained that the team didn’t want to have Davis playing center full-time due to wear and tear. In turn, he cited DeMarcus Cousins and JaVale McGee on the roster to help ease the pressure off Davis needing to play center for extended periods.READ NEXT: Lance Stephenson Free Agency: DeMarcus Cousins Link Adds to Lakers Talk
