CHICAGO The idea of being a superstar doesn't quite fit Anthony Davis yet.
The former Kentucky freshman is projected to be the No. 1 pick of the June 28 draft and the next great NBA big man, but it wasn't long ago that he was a guard before a growth spurt forced him to become a post player.
And since winning the national championship at Kentucky, Davis' celebrity status has been on a whirlwind.
"It's been crazy, overwhelming," said Davis, a 6-foot-10, 220-pound forward. "I'm just trying to take it all in. It's been crazy for me. All the media, all the interviews."
Davis also has been doing some of his own interviewing. He may be the top prospect in this year's NBA draft, but he still hasn't hired an agent.
Davis expects to decide on an agent in the next couple of days. Meantime, he is getting to know the staff of the New Orleans Hornets, who own the first pick in the draft.
Davis watched Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals with New Orleans coach Monty Williams. Count Davis as someone who wasn't shocked by the 45-point, 15-rebound effort by LeBron James to help Miami force a Game 7 tonight.
"I called it," Davis said. "I already knew. Great players step up. He wants to win a ring so bad, he's not going home. When he came out early and started dominating, I knew it was going to be a big game."
Measuring out The NBA released the anthropometric measurements for players at the combine.
The tallest player without shoes was Illinois center Meyers Leonard, at 6-foot- 11 3/4. The shortest was Xavier guard Tu Holloway at 5-foot-10 1/2.
The lightest player was Kansas guard Tyshawn Taylor at 177 pounds. The heaviest was Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger at 268.2 pounds.
Interviews and exit Kings officials wrapped up their player interviews Friday and returned to Sacramento.
The Kings will begin hosting workouts Monday. North Carolina forward John Henson and New Mexico forward Drew Gordon are among those scheduled to participate in the workouts.
North Carolina center Tyler Zeller said he has a workout with the Kings set for early next week.
