Ed Davis Opts Out of Contract

Official Lakers Release

Ed Davis, who averaged 8.3 points, 7.6 boards and 1.2 blocks in 2014-15 for the Lakers, became a free agent when he did not pick up the option on the second year of his contract with Los Angeles. The 25-year-old was effective in the pick-and-roll and on the offensive glass, while providing quality defense at the rim from the weak side, and on his man.

Davis needed to make 18 more baskets to qualify for the NBA’s field goal percentage leaderboard, where he would have ranked second at 60.1 behind only DeAndre Jordan.
