Anthony Davis draining circus shots days after surgery; Pelicans scheduled to play in China

The majority of the opening-day roster may be in street clothes, but we've still got news!

For the 2015-16 season, Anthony Davis added the three-point shot to his repertoire, but his efficiency wasn't much to write home about. Out of 108 attempts, he made just 35 of them, good for a percentage of 32.4%. More work is definitely needed, and it appears Davis has already gotten back to the grind.

From a sitting position in a court side seat inside the AT&T Center, Davis hits nothing but net, and moreover, he called his shot -- listen closely!

Maybe practicing shots normally reserved for Stephen Curry can hone his three-point accuracy? Well, at the very least, it will help him still look like an NBA player while on crutches and likely help pass the time just a little while glued to seat cushions during his foreseeable future.

In other news, it was announced that the New Orleans Pelicans and the Houston Rockets will represent the NBA in China next preseason. The teams will meet twice, once in Shanghai and once in Beijing.

The Pelicans and Rockets will play Oct. 9 in Shanghai at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, followed by a rematch in Beijing on Oct. 12 at The LeSports Center. The 10th edition of NBA Global Games China will celebrate the Pelicans’ first visit to the country, and the Rockets’ first visit to Shanghai since their inaugural game there in 2004, when NBA Legend Yao Ming played in his hometown of Shanghai for the first time in his NBA career in front of a sold-out crowd.

More than likely, this upcoming overseas trip probably negates the Pelicans on returning back to The Greenbrier in West Virginia for training camp. After how this season panned out, that's not the worst idea in the world.
