WATCH: $145 million man Anthony Davis can drain 3-pointers, too
Landing a 5-year contract worth $145 million will make you do extraordinary things, as evidenced by Anthony Davis' shooting stroke

MANILA, Philippines – If recent workout videos of Anthony Davis are any indication of how his game is evolving, guarding the New Orleans Pelicans forward is looking like a much daunting task for the 2015-16 season.

Getting in that work today!

Posted by Anthony Davis on Wednesday, July 1, 2015

Davis, 22, recently posted a video of his off-season workouts, which featured the 6-foot-10 All-NBA first team selection showing off his post moves and – showing a facet that had been invisible until now – some 3-point shooting stroke.

Davis has only hit 3 of 27 career attempts from beyond the arc since being drafted in 2012, but at one point hits 4 straight 3s. Perhaps landing a 5-year contract worth $145 million will make you do extraordinary things.

Davis posted regular season averages of 24.4 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks, leading New Orleans to the eighth seed in the Western Conference this past season.

The supporting cast around Davis as starting center Omer Asik has agreed to a 5-year, $58 million extension while backup Alexis Ajinca has agreed to a 4-year $20 million deal, according to NOLA.com.

Free agents can’t officially sign their contracts until July 9. – Rappler.com
