Forward Ed Davis — Unrestricted

The Brooklyn Nets shocked the NBA world this year, making a gigantic push all the way to the playoffs. Behind the emergence of point guard D’Angelo Russell, the Nets made it clear they had had enough of the rebuilding conversations.

One of the key reserves in Brooklyn this year, veteran big man Ed Davis, would be a strong signing for the Bulls. The 9-year pro has spent most of his time coming off the bench for five NBA teams, but brings exactly what I’ve talked about over the past couple of weeks, and even now: Physicality.

Davis is versatile in that he can play both front court positions. Offensively, he’s all about the short game, which is fine. He won’t be one to jump outside the arc and let it fly. He’s all about the action closer to the basket.

One of the most impressive things about Davis this last year was his ability to rebound the ball at an even better rate than normal — and he’s historically a great rebounder. This past season, Davis averaged a career-high 8.6 rebounds per game in just 17.9 minutes. If the Bulls want a hybrid front court player who could spell either Carter or Lauri Markkanen, Davis would be a great addition.
