He needs another guy who can play man defense against the better post up players, because he is not nearly as good at man defense.
Really, his best current comp in the NBA might be Serge Ibaka. Davis is taller, but they have similar offensive games.
Cant disagree with a word you said there. I do think Davis will be an immediate impact player. Does he need help? Yes. One piece is already there in one Eric Gordon. And Gordon's game does fit in to what Davis was used to at UK. I also think he needs the help in the post and I am sure they will address that.
