A nine-year NBA veteran, Ed Davis has played for five teams since being selected with the No. 13 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft.
Since entering the NBA in 2010, Davis has become one of the league's best rebounders. Heading into the 2019-20 season, he has career averages of 6.5 points and 6.8 rebounds in 20.2 minutes over 640 games—and in 2018-19 he became the first player in NBA history to average at least eight rebounds in fewer than 18 minutes per game (he averaged 8.6 rebounds in 17.9 minutes).
Davis' father, Terry Davis, played in the NBA for 10 seasons.
Davis, who was Virginia's Mr. Basketball as a high school senior, was rated as a five-star recruit and subsequently attended the University of North Carolina, where he spent two seasons. As a freshman, he finished with 11 points and eight rebounds off the bench to help the Tar Heels win the 2009 NCAA championship game. A broken wrist prematurely ended Davis' sophomore season.
