Speaking to USA Today's Mark Medina, Davis said he doesn't want to be a part of the 2020 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
"I'm an in-game dunker," he said.
Now in his eighth NBA season, Davis has never taken part in the league's annual dunk showcase.
There have been teases in the past, most notably in February 2014 when his former New Orleans Pelicans teammate Anthony Morrow posted a video on Instagram of Davis throwing down a windmill dunk and then addressing the camera directly: "Put me in the Dunk Contest!"
Despite the popularity of the event, the NBA has had difficulty attracting marquee names. The four participants last year were non-All-Stars Hamidou Diallo, Dennis Smith Jr., Miles Bridges and John Collins.
Davis, who is averaging 27.7 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game, will almost certainly be in Chicago the weekend of Feb. 14-16 as an All-Star. But it sounds like the All-Star Game will be the only opportunity to see him on the court.
