Struggles by the New Orleans Pelicans this season won't affect Anthony Davis' long-term commitment to the franchise, he said Thursday.

"Look, I'm here. If I was thinking about leaving, I'd never re-sign [last summer]. I'm here to stay," Davis told ESPN Radio's Meet The All-Stars show that will air Saturday night (5:30 p.m. ET).

Davis, who signed a five-year, $127 million contract extension with the Pelicans in July, was peppered with questions about his future earlier this week in a conference call with members of the international media in advance of Sunday's All-Star Game in New Orleans.

During the conference call, Davis was asked about possibly teaming up with Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook with the Los Angeles Lakers someday. He also was asked whether the Pelicans' slow progress -- they've made the playoffs only once in Davis' four seasons -- would eventually lead him to push for a trade.

"I'm here to help this team win [and] put this franchise back on the map," Davis said Thursday.

The 23-year-old also said he would be "very involved" in trying to persuade free agent-to-be Jrue Holiday to re-sign with the Pelicans this summer.
