Player Bio

Edward Adam Davis, the son of Angela Jones and Terry Davis, was born in Washington, D.C. in 1989. Terry played 10 seasons in the NBA for the Heat, Nuggets, Mavericks and Wizards. Ed had a prolific high school basketball career, starting off with two years at Mechanicsville Hanover High School in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Davis then transferred to Benedictine High School in Richmond, Virginia, where he averaged 18.5 points, 13.2 rebounds and 4.4 blocks per game as a junior. As a senior, he was even better in averaging 22 points, 14 rebounds and seven blocks per game en route to 2008 Virginia Mr. Basketball honors. Davis spent the next two seasons playing collegiate basketball at the University of North Carolina, where he starred for coach Roy Williams.

The Richmond, Virginia native averaged 13.4 points and 9.6 rebounds in 23 games in his sophomore season (2009-10) with the Tar Heels before breaking his wrist. Before the injury, Davis was first in blocked shots and second in rebounding in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He did lead the ACC in field-goal percentage (.578) and blocked shots (64). As a freshman, he helped lead the Tar Heels to the NCAA championship in 2009. Davis announced that he would enter the 2010 NBA Draft after his sophomore season at the University of North Carolina. Davis was subsequently selected by the Toronto Raptors as the 13th overall pick.
