JJ Redick is already making waves as the new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. From the sounds of it, he's been in talks with several players, including Anthony Davis. In fact, it's been revealed what Redick plans to do with Davis moving forward, which could prove to be big for this franchise.

During a guest appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Shams Charania reports that JJ Redick plans to ensure that Anthony Davis is more involved in the Lakers' game plans. If that's the case, then Davis should be more than happy with Redick calling the shots.

“JJ Redick wanted to be an NBA Head Coach and he shared his vision with the Lakers a couple weeks ago… He wants to make Anthony Davis feel more involved and he had a conversation with him on Monday.”

That has to be music to Anthony Davis' ears. He was originally brought into the Lakers organization to be their superstar player alongside LeBron James. With JJ Redick as head coach, it appears Davis will be the featured player moving forward. Even after James eventually retires. At the very least this provides a glimpse into Redick's plans for Los Angeles overall.

Anthony Davis has been a superstar since entering the league. He's been a solid power forward-center who is one of the best players on the court when healthy. Last season, Davis played 76 out of 82 games, which is the most he's played throughout his career. He proved to be a big part of the Lakers' success in the regular season, averaging 24.7 points, 12.6 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks per game.

Can Anthony Davis have a career year with JJ Redick as head coach?

Although JJ Redick doesn't have much coaching experience, he's known for having a mind for basketball. He's proven to know what he's talking about since starting his Old Man and the Three podcast. Additionally, he clearly knew what he was talking about as an analyst on ESPN and serving as a color man for NBA games.

With that said, Redick should be able to dial up plays specifically designed for Anthony Davis. Numerous talking heads and former players believe JJ Redick has the X's and O's necessary to be a good head coach in the league. With that in mind, Davis should be in good hands.

If the Lakers' new coach wants to make sure Anthony Davis has a main role or even a larger role, then we should expect big things from the superstar power forward. That'll be especially true if LA can build a solid roster around Davis.
