I think Ed Davis not being mentioned is an intentional ploy. All the bad press that landed on Barney @ seasons end really effected his worth on the market. And BC threw him under the bus a little. Obviously to make more blame go his way as BC did not have a contract yet. And of course Barney deserved it. So now the Raptors have a new Coach and things have changed. You are trying to talk about his importance to the franchise and where he has to play. Which is PF. What the team is trying to do is to imply that David is not as important and we only need a backup for Barney.
It's just smoke. If I hazard a guess then they want a top 10 pick next year for him if that is possible. And considering BC's ability to trade then it certainly is a possibility.
