The Chicago Bulls could sign Ed Davis for front court depth

Ed Davis started his NBA career back in 2010 as a first-round pick by the Toronto Raptors. He has since then gone on to having a lengthy career, spanning across seven different franchises.

Davis is a 6-foot-9 big man who plays a bit bigger than his height suggests. For most of his career, Davis has been one of the primary reserve big men on his team. While Davis has never been one to stuff the stat sheet, he is a physical player who can offer the Bulls rebounding prowess.

Over his career, Davis has averaged just under 20 minutes per game while posting 6.6 rebounds — 2.3 of those rebounds happen to be offensive, which is impressive considering the amount of minutes played.

Davis is not a threat from the outside like Vucevic or even Williams, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. He’s more of a change-of-pace type big man who can come in off the bench and man the paint.

The 32-year-old certainly has some ball left in him, as evidenced by his career-high 8.6 boards per game coming just a couple of seasons ago with the Brooklyn Nets.

Davis has also been a locker room favorite no matter where he’s been, proving he is the ultimate teammate. Filling out the front court with Davis would be as solid a move as the Bulls could make from here on out.
