Byron Scott hinted that Ed Davis could play some center for the Lakers on Friday.
"I like Ed's size," Scott said. "He's very good around the basket and can also block shots. He's gonna have to play in the post." There are probably about 20-24 minutes up for grabs at center behind Jordan Hill and Davis has logged minutes at center before, but he didn't fare well. Although, before he made his debut with the Grizzlies on Feb. 1, 2012, Davis was fantastic back in January 2012 with the Raptors, averaging 13.9 points 8.1 boards and 1.0 blocks in the month. Still, he didn't perform at Memphis and is not on the fantasy radar in most leagues while Hill is healthy. Aug 9 - 9:59 AM

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Free agent forward Ed Davis has agreed to a two-year deal with the Lakers, reports Yahoo! Sports.

The Lakers need a little bit of everything and while Davis has the potential to be a nice player, he isn't likely to be a difference maker alongside Kobe. The deal is for two years and $2 million, with the second year being a player option.

The Clippers have reached out to Ed Davis about a contract.

There was reported interest on Tuesday and the Clippers seem serious to replace Glen Davis with a fellow having the same surname. Ed was a bit of a letdown with the Grizzlies after a productive 2012-13 in Toronto. He'd backup Blake Griffin in L.A.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

The Clippers are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Ed Davis.

Anybody watching Big Baby flopping around the court during the playoffs knows the Clippers need a quality backup power forward. Davis would certainly fit the bill and his market has softened since his time in Memphis.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

The Grizzlies are not expected to extend a qualifying offer to Ed Davis, and thus he will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Davis was brought in by ex-CEO Jason Levien to be a potential Zach Randolph replacement, but that clearly didn't pan out. During the 2013-14 season Davis averaged 5.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks in 15.2 minutes per game, and it appears he is not in the future plans of the Memphis organization.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis will become a free agent this summer, and the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that his departure from the Grizzlies appears "imminent."

The Grizzlies haven't yet decided whether to extend a $4.3 million qualifying offer to make Davis a restricted FA, but either way it sounds like his tenure in Memphis is over. The four-year veteran averaged 5.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in 15.2 minutes per game last season, and will need a much bigger role to be a reliable fantasy option.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis is listed as the Grizzlies' probable starting PF for Saturday's Game 7 in Oklahoma City.

Davis started four games this season, averaging 10.3 points on 60 percent shooting, with 6.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 25 minutes per contest. The league isn't budging from their decision to suspend Zach Randolph and Memphis may also turn to guys like James Johnson, Kosta Koufos or Jon Leuer in his absence.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis started in place of Zach Randolph (illness) on Wednesday, but played just 13 minutes, missed both his shots and finished with zero points, one rebound and one block.

So much for that. Z-Bo won't be out for long and we're just hoping you didn't take the bait and toss Davis into a lineup tonight.

Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis will start at power forward in place of Zach Randolph (illness) for Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

When Randolph hasn't been on the court, most of the minutes at power forward have gone to James Johnson, so he might be in for plenty of playing time especially against a smaller Nets team. Davis is a risky play in most leagues while Johnson is a pick-and-play option.
Mar 5 - 7:23 PM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis stepped up on Wednesday with 14 points, nine boards and one assist on 7-of-8 shooting vs. the Bucks.

Marc Gasol played just 14 minutes tonight and Davis was a more effective player. That won't happen too often, so fantasy owners can pretty much disregard Boss' explosion tonight.
Jan 16 - 12:37 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis double-doubled with 10 points and a career-high 17 rebounds in 30 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Suns.

Davis also chipped in with three blocks and he had a similar line on Sunday, but he and fellow reserve Jon Leuer have oscillated in their production, and with Marc Gasol's return on the horizon he's a short-term desperation pickup at best.
Jan 11 - 1:31 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis was outstanding vs. the Pistons on Sunday with 17 points, 11 boards and one block on 7-of-11 shooting in 17 minutes.

He had a horrible start to the game with his first two minutes including two fouls, two turnovers and one rebound. Davis was getting the ball on the move in pick-and-rolls while also hitting the glass hard on both ends. He's been a little too inconsistent to pick up in most leagues, especially with Marc Gasol doing light workouts.
Jan 5 - 4:23 PM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis cooled off on Friday against the Nuggets, playing just 19 minutes with five points on 1-of-5 shooting, two rebounds and one steal.

Davis went for 16 and 11 on Thursday but predictably couldn't keep things up given his tenuous bench role. With Marc Gasol returning soon there's not enough to grab onto here for fantasy owners.
Jan 4 - 2:11 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis hit 8-of-11 shots on his way to 16 points, 11 rebounds, two steals and zero blocks in just 22 minutes on Thursday.

This was quite a game for Davis, considering Zach Randolph had 20 points and 15 rebounds and Davis came off the bench. Davis is averaging 10.6 points and just 4.8 rebounds over his last five games and Marc Gasol is rumored to be nearing a return. Therefore, we'd recommend just leaving Davis on waivers for now. While this wasn't a season high in rebounds for Davis, it was the first time he hit double figures there since Dec. 3.
Jan 3 - 12:41 AM
Ed Davis - F/C - Lakers

Ed Davis hit 6-of-8 shots for 17 points (and just one rebound) in 23 minutes off the bench on Saturday, but also had a steal and a block.

He appears to have passed Jon Leuer on the depth chart, but as long as Zach Randolph is healthy, probably won't have any fantasy value. Just keep an eye on him.
