    Default Does Ed Davis Mean the End of Amir Johnson Toronto?

    The title says it all. Please discuss.

    I don't think so, if Bosh doesn't come back Davis, Bargnani, Johnson will be a strong big man rotation with complementary skills. Davis and Johnson don't seem to clash with each other, and without Johnson our front court would be Bargnani, a rookie, Reggie, and Joey Dorsey, which is pretty thin, so I think BC would still want Amir back.

    Edit: I forgot about Alabi. Now him and Amir have quite similar skillsets, so getting him might mean something...

    I doubt it. I wouldn't be surprised if Amir and E.D. split minutes, maybe 24 apiece.

    No it means the end of Chris Bosh or rather the acceptance by managment that Chris Bosh is unlikely to be re-signed.

    Lets not forget that also Rasho is gone and POB is gone and if there are any takers then Reggie Evans will be gone so there are spots for bigs in the roster.

    Lets just hope that Amir accepts Toronto offer and we at least get one worry out of the way.

    I don't think so especially if Bosh is gone.

    Alabi is no where close to Johnson this year and probably next year.

    I dare to say that Davis is not even close to what Johnson can do on the floor this year.

    Amir spent the week in Detroit and I am sure Duffy is working the phone lines. Pop will probably make another run at him like he did three years ago and Flip would love to have him in Washington after coaching him in Detroit.

    I am sure Johnson will make the best decision for himself.
