KG had an extremely limited offensive skill set coming into the league. I think they're a good comparison: Garnett with no college, but several years of being "The Big Man"; Davis with a year of college competition, but only two years removed from being 6'2".

The kid has a nice stroke on his mid-range jumper. He rarely takes it; not his job on this team. But his base is nice and balanced, he's got a good follow through. He'll be able to shoot. He has a FAR better handle than KG had at the same age.

I expect people to be shocked at Davis' production on the offensive end in a year or two. He'll be a VERY good pro, and I would not be a bit surprised to see Garnett as his upside.
