How do you get an NBA star to join your business?
Throwing some booty at him ain't a bad idea ... and that's exactly what a New Orleans shake house did for Pelicans star Anthony Davis ... to get him to be their official ambassador.
TMZ Sports has video of the lovely ladies down at Vlive New Orleans -- one of the premiere strip clubs in the country -- making a very cheeky pitch to AD last weekend to be the face of their establishment.
The girls did what they always do -- shakin' dat ass -- only this time they were all wearing custom body paint with Davis' number ... to show their love for the $125 million man.
Anthony actually missed the display that night ... he was sidelined with a back injury that kept him from participating ... but honchos at Vlive tell us he'll be back and the silicone will be waiting.
Sorry you missed it, AD ... we'll just have to watch now ... over, and over, and over again.
