    Default Ed Davis' Future in Toronto (Tim Chisolm)

    Tim Chisolm (TSN) seems to think Ed Davis' days in Toronto are numbered:

    Davis has seen his numbers drop across the board from his good-but-not-great rookie season. He's rebounding less, both per game and per minute, he's scoring less and his shooting percentage has dropped 7.2 per cent. Amazingly, despite Bargnani's prolonged absence this season, Davis is playing fewer minutes per game than he did a year ago, a drop from 24.6 mpg down to 22.3 mpg. After his solid production last season it seemed inevitable that Davis would see an uptick in playing time, but Casey has not glommed onto Davis like many thought he would and that has left Davis in a precarious position with the club and their future.
    Of course, Davis was never supposed to be in Toronto in the first place. He was almost like an inherited pick, a guy Colangelo took because he thought he should, not because Davis is who he wanted. The roster was never really designed to force development out of Davis like it was for Bargnani and DeRozan, and probably will be next year for Valanciunas. He never felt like a guy the organization was excited to stand behind, just a guy they were happy to have. Davis still has a lot of growing to do as a player and could still turn out to be a fine professional, it's just unlikely that any of that happens with him playing in Toronto.

    I can't help but agree.

    I think this article is bang on. I really do like Davis though and hope he does well. I just don't see how he does it in Toronto when Amir brings so much more to the table. To play devil's advocate though, Amir does cost a bit more and that could be a factor

    This is what sometimes happens when you draft the best player available. It's a good problem to have, he was an excellent pick considering where they got him. When Casey first got here he mentioned multiple players but not Davis. I commented on it then and said it wasn't a good sign for Ed Davis. Now that the season has played out there is buzz that he might be an odd man out. They should be increasing his minutes greatly right now if he's going to be on the block. Market this asset Casey. Market this asset.

    In slightly unrelated news, how sweet would it have been if Paul George fell to us?

    hard to argue with the article. It is what it is. I guess what it boils down to is Ed or Amir? Who's better for us, or more appropriately, who might another team covet? If there was a season for Ed to develop and get playing time, this was it. Unless he just needs to get bigger. I wonder if we'll find out next year.
