    Default Remember that Ed guy?

    Anyone missing Ed Davis? While he was showing some upside with his minutes, I have forgot about him already. Amir has played very well and JV has put up back to back double doubles. The team is winning more games then they lose with Gay, and players seem happy.

    Thoughts?

    Fact that we are looking for starter PF means that he's missed. Fans were happy with our PF line up, which was solid enough not to look for better/more expensive options.

    Not really I do love Ed but people fell in love with the guy because literally anything was better to partner with Amir/JV downlow than Bargnani and we started playing way better D with those 2 so it padded him a little bit, I would do that Gay trade 1 million and 1 times over. Gay was the best player in the trade and when you get the best player in the trade you win the trade.

    Ed Davis will probably be a Raptor again at some point something tells me he will be a free agent soonr rather than later.

    I disagree. We're looking for a starting PF because Colangelo believes we're all-of-a-sudden a real playoff threat with the acquisition of Gay. Davis was never going to be a legit starter for us.

    I am not sure sure that we are looking for a starting 4 as much as we are looking to upgrade the front court....something we were still looking at doing when Ed was here. Also, Amir as a Starter in February is playing very well, 13 points 11 boards, with more than a block and a steal per game to go along with over 2 assists.....

    Davis was the best option for a starting PF next to Amir. Now that we have Rudy, Davis is equivalent to a great backup PF.
    He plays backup PF in Memphis, so he's fulfilling his role.

    Once a player is traded to another team there is no point in following their success. Jose may be different because he was a lifer, but even that will get old eventually.

    The need to upgrade the PF spot existed even with Davis there.. I personally felt that Bargnani wasn't going to be a permanent fixture, and Davis/Amir seemed to both be off the bench type of guys that one seemed to always be expendable (and in this case Davis seemed the most likely due to his contract/age/potential).

    A threat for this season? That would be
