    Default Ed Davis is popular

    @ZachLowe_NBA: Just finished Raps-Rox: Another strong game for Ed Davis. Keep an eye on him; other teams are.

    if they trade ed instead of amir we riot. they will trade bargs right after they assess what the best deal is and them pull the trigger. i think bargs is a good as gone. could have been done already if it wasn't for that pesky elbow

    I'm just wondering, what if Minnesota offers Derrick Williams for Ed Davis. Would you guys do it?

    If you asked me this question last year i would say in a HEARTBEAT. But Ed just like DeMar has improved so much this year. So i don't know anymore.

    What do you guys think?

    For me, untouchable players are: Ross, Derozan, JV, Davis, Lowry. Everyone else, make your deals.

    Nope. Ed Davis has found his game, while Derrick Williams is still looking for his.

    I would trade Bargs for Derrick.

    If only. They'll hold onto Rubio like their first-born child. Maybe Shved or Barea with a pick, but this trade doesn't go down with Rubio.

    Yeah, that would be bad.

    I wonder if the tweet meant other teams are starting to notice him and prepare for him in games and not a reference to possible transaction.

    Happy for Ed. He's put in some work over the summer and the results are showing. The best part is that he's doing all this on pure physical talent and once his basketball IQ catches up with his physical ability he's just going to be that much better. I really hope he is not included in any trades because I would love to see how much he can improve with another off season of training.

    People forget that Ed Davis was actually considered to be one of the best players in his draft class when he came out of high school and would have gone top 5 if he had declared after his freshmen year. Then he got hurt in his and his stock dropped. Then the night of the draft like 6 teams that should have taken him passed and suddenly here we are. We get a guy who we not only should have never had a chance at, but a guy we didn't even work out because we thought there was no way he'd drop so far. It's no exageration to say he may be the best player the Raptors have drafted in Colangelo's tenure: he is far more athletic than any of the other bigs, has a good feel for the post, and he is already a great rebounder and a good defender. Plus he has the NBA pedigree with his father having been a very succesful player throughout the 90's. Since he got here I've been hoping we'd see him take a step forward and start to force the staff to give him minutes. Originally I thought he'd be a great compliment to Andrea, now I think he may be the guy we should be trying to compliment. It's early yet and he has to show he can bring it consistently but Ed Davis is starting to look like a big part of the Raptors future.

    JV is the only person who should be untouchable. Anyone else can go....in a literal sense, there are only like 10 untouchable guys in the league. If Pau is touchable, then so is ED.

    Let's not fall in to a malaise because of a two game winning streak.

    note: I love ED, just wanted to make my point

    Lowry should not be untouchable IMO, there is no guarantee he resigns and frankly i dont think hes playing 100% mentally speaking. And his effort and decision making and man defense is quite suspect considering that was supposed to be his major selling point.

    I dunno about "big part" of Raptors future for Davis, but I think he provides some insurance and justification for upper brass to believe Bargnani is expendable.

    No one on this team is untouchable. Lebron is untouchable. Durant is untouchable. The only guy who shouldn't be available is JV but that's based on potential and years of control....

    You said it before I could. Even JV is not untouchable though, nobody is.

    I really don't think there is an untouchable player on this roster.
