The Los Angeles Clippers don’t have much money to spend in free agency, especially after bringing in Spencer Hawes. But apparently still looking for additional big men, the Clippers have their eyes set on Ed Davis. The former Memphis Grizzlies talent has drawn interest from a handful of teams this offseason, though has yet to agree on a deal.
The Los Angeles Clippers meanwhile hope that they’ll be the team he chooses as Brad Turner says they’re still courting the big man and there is hope he’ll announce his decision by the end of the week.
A former North Carolina Tar Heel, Davis was selected by the Toronto Raptors with the 13th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. The power forward played well during his two plus year stint with the Raptors, though was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in 2012. His numbers dipped and he became ineffective during his first season with Memphis, though seemed to rebound this past year where he averaged nearly 6 points and 4 rebounds in just over 15 minutes per game.
However, with the Grizzlies not having a ton of floor time available, Davis began to seek greener pastures.
Of course, with DeAndre Jordan, Blake Griffin and Spencer Hawes all ahead of Ed Davis on the depth chart, you have to wonder how much floor time he’d get with the Los Angeles Clippers as well. Add in their lack of money and it appears questionable if the two sides will be a fit, despite the Clippers desires to sign the 26-year-old.
