    for those that can't read it...

    Current: Davis is finally seeing his production match his potential, and the Raptors are now one of the NBA's hottest teams since he has moved into the starting lineup. Davis has real talent to "feel" out a defense's weaknesses and earn easy baskets by moving to the perfect spot on the floor. He gets a lot of dunks this way, and he finishes a high rate of his non-dunks too. Davis works at rebounding every shot, and does so effectively, while making very few mistakes with the ball. -- Thorpe

    Future: With his performance over the past month, Davis has earned the right to stay in the starting lineup after Andrea Bargnani returns, and he might not give up that role for years. Strength remains an issue for the rail-thin Davis, especially in terms of defending the post. MySynergySports.com ranks him 124th out of 152 qualified players in points allowed per post-up. -- Pelton
    he has a terrible WARP, though i have no idea what it measures exactly.

    Interestingly

    Jeff Teague
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
    Kemba Walker
    Tristan Thompson
    Dion Waiters
    Danilo Gallinari
    Andre Drummond
    Brandon Knight
    Klay Thompson
    Chandler Parsons
    Ricky Rubio
    Al-Farouq Aminu
    Eric Gordon
    Evan Turner
    Tyreke Evans
    Kawhi Leonard
    DeMar DeRozan
    Jonas Valanciunas
    Derrick Favors
    Gordon Hayward

    did not make the list.

    I am sure there are PLENTY of GMs (read 0) that would draft Ed Davis before John Wall and Ricky Rubio if there were to start a new franchise today...
