    METAIRIE, La. - The New Orleans Pelicans have exercised third-year options on the contracts of 2012 first-round draft choices Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers.

    Davis, the first overall pick in the 2012 draft, averaged 13.5 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.2 steals and was named an NBA All-Rookie First Team member last season.

    The 6-foot-10 former Kentucky star was a regular starter at powerforward. His 20 double-doubles led all rookies.

    Rivers was the 10th overall pick in the draft. He averaged 6.2 points, 2.1 assists and 1.8 rebounds, but saw his rookie campaign cut short by a hand injury in early March, during a game in which he'd scored 10 first-half points against the Los Angeles Lakers.

    The Pelicans announced the moves, which were expected, on Wednesday.

    I love the fact that we have so many good good players in the NBA to be proud of and we have no criminals to be ashamed of. Tell PJ we said good luck in court next month and the month after that. hehehe

    Rivers had no charges...

    but did commit 2 turnovers.

    Given his ball dominance (i.e., dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-dribble-drib

    ble-shoot), 2 is probably something worth getting a least a little excited about if you are a fan of his game.

    Austin Rivers had a breakout Summer League performance in the Pelicans' first-ever game, making 24 points on 15 shots, nabbing 7 boards and dishing 6 assists. He started off strong, making several hard drives to the basket in the early going, but he really seemed to gain confidence in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. When he had the ball in his hands, he was looking to drive to the basket, and neither Tim Hardaway, Jr. nor Iman Shumpert were able to keep him from getting to the paint. In addition, Rivers was rather efficient on his jumpers, knocking down several long-range looks. And, incredibly, he had only two turnovers, even though he constantly had the ball in his hands.
