Raptors luck out: Ed Davis to the Raptors
In a somewhat unexpected fall in the lottery top-10 talent Ed Davis slipped into the Toronto Raptors laps.
Landing Davis is especially huge because of Chris Bosh’s pending free agency. Davis will be able to start if needed but will likely be the first big off the bench to start the season.
Davis has excellent length and athleticism and will make Raptor fans very happy with his ability to defend unlike our former C Andrea Bargnani. He is a very good shot-blocker and rebounder and will be an ideal complement to both Amir Johnson and Andrea Bargnani.
Davis has immense potential and if he can add some muscle and some range he can become a dominant player in this league. Otherwise he will still make a fine role player and will help ease the potential loss of Ed Davis.
Ed Davis began the season as the #2 ranked player on ESPN’s big board and as stated above has loads of potential. Davis is an explosive dunker and will make quite the duo with DeMar DeRozan.
Ed Davis is a hard worker and it is this quality along with his D and athleticism that will immediately cause Raptor fans to fall for the newest addition to the Raptors.
