2016-17

There was no outlook written for Ed Davis.

2015-16

After accepting the veteran's minimum to join the Lakers last summer, Davis took full advantage of an unexpected injury, Julius Randle's season-ending fractured tibia on Opening Night, and logged 20-to-30 minutes in 53 of his 79 games. Along the way, Davis picked up his most run (23 minutes per contest) since he was dealt from Toronto to Memphis in the midst of the 2012-13 season. A 23-game stretch in the starting lineup from Dec. 7 through Jan. 21 deviated little from his season-long marks, which equated to averages of 8.3 points (on a team-best 60 percent shooting), 7.6 rebounds, a team-high 1.2 blocks, and 1.2 assists. Cashing in on the most fruitful campaign of his five-year career, he inked a three-year, $20 million contract in Portland, where another bench role awaits behind holdover Meyers Leonard and fellow offseason addition Mason Plumlee. Ringing in at 6-foot-10, 225 pounds, Davis can man both power forward and center, but that versatility may not be enough to fend off 20-year-old Noah Vonleh at the four, thereby containing his value to deeper leagues.

2014-15

Ed Davis was planted on the bench in Memphis last season, stuck behind Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kosta Koufos, and at times, Jon Leuer in the rotation. He averaged 5.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.3 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 15 minutes per game through 63 games, all career lows. Davis shot 53 percent from the field on 4.6 attempts and 53 percent from the line on 1.4 attempts. He signed as a free agent in Los Angeles for the veteran's minimum and will be looking to reignite his career. The frontcourt isn't as stacked as it was in Memphis and new coach Byron Scott has already stated he expects Davis to get a good amount of minutes at the center position, likely backing up Jordan Hill. When Davis was last getting near-starters minutes in Toronto in 2012-13 before his trade to Memphis, he averaged 9.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.8 blocks in 24 minutes per game. His fantasy strengths lie in his ability to get rebounds, blocks, and shoot a very solid field goal percentage, and if the minutes return to his Raptors' days, he could be a sneaky, deeper league option.

2013-14

Davis appeared to be having a semi-breakout season with the Raptors in 2012-13 before he was shipped to Memphis in the Rudy Gay trade. With the Grizzlies, Davis averaged nine minutes less per game and never fit in with head coach Lionel Hollins, who wasn't happy with the trade. It may have been the coach's grudge or Davis' inability to pick up a new system that resulted in him not having an impact in Memphis. Aside of ridding themselves of Gay's salary, the Grizzlies view Davis as a key asset in the deal. He's still on the thin side, so it remains to be seen if he can become a power forward who doesn't get pushed around in the low post. His minutes will be capped with Zach Randolph in front of him, but the Grizz are hoping to see a player that can eventually replace Z-Bo.

2012-13

Davisí second season in the NBA was not much different than his rookie season. He averaged 6.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 23.2 minutes per game, all but his blocks were slightly down from his 2010-11 numbers. Coach Dwane Casey doesnít like playing Davis at center, believing heís strictly a power forward. Itís also believed that rookie Jonas Valanciunas will win the starting center job, or at least demand significant minutes there. Davis will be fighting an uphill battle to improve on his numbers this season. Unless Casey is willing to slot Andrea Bargnani into the small forward spot, Davis will likely played limited minutes and only be of use in deeper leagues when the Raptorsí roster is healthy. If he ever gets over 30 minutes of run per game, Davis should be a double-threat and have some value in the blocks category. While we like his long-term potential, weíre also worried that Casey isnít ready to give him starters minutes.

2011-12

Davis had his NBA debut delayed after suffering a torn meniscus in his right knee prior to training camp last season. The Raptors wisely decided to bring the rookie along slowly, but by the end of the season he was a regular in the starting lineup. After showing steady progression, Davis started to shine during the last few weeks of the season, averaging 13.1 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in his final 11 games. Coming out of the University of North Carolina, Davis was already considered a solid rebounder and defender, but his offensive game was considered raw. While heís still in need of fine-tuning, Davis has the potential to develop into a solid low-post offensive option down the line. The Raptors also have Amir Johnson at power forward, but given Davisí strong finish and first-round pedigree, we expect him to eventually earn the brunt of minutes at the four.

2010-11

Davis tore a meniscus in his right knee in a pickup game and was forced to undergo minor arthroscopic knee surgery that will keep him out until sometime in November. Heís a great rebounder and shot blocker who could carve out a small defensive role with the team later in the season, but heíll have to get healthy before the team can count on him for anything.
