What you need to know of Ed Davis, and a bit of an update
The Raptors have stuck to their script and taken the player they deemed best at any position when they drafted Ed Davis with the 13th pick in Thursday's NBA draft.
The word on the 6-10 North Carolina power forward is long, athletic rebounder; coming off wrist injury but the Raptors aren't worried about that
Looks like a solid if unspectacular pick who was projected to go quite higher than No. 13.
Son of Terry Davis, who played 10 years in the NBA. Said his favourite player is Chris Bosh, too bad he was drafted to replace him.
We'll be back with more later on.
Well, here's the more:
The word I got from someone who I trust when I asked whether Davis was picked to be traded was:
"He's not going anywhere."
The interesting thing is the Raptors did not have him in for a workout; they asked but he thought he'd be gone by No. 13 and didn't accept the invitation. Toronto did interview him and see him work out at the Chicago pre-draft camp.
