Several teams considering multi-year offer for Nets free agent Ed Davis

Several teams are considering making a multi-year offer to big man Ed Davis, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Davis spent the 2018-19 campaign with the Brooklyn Nets, playing in 81 games and averaging 5.8 points and 8.6 rebounds per game while shooting 61.6 percent from the floor and 61.6 percent from the free-throw line.

The 30-year-old, who played his collegiate basketball at the University of North Carolina, was originally selected by the Toronto Raptors in the first round (13th pick overall) of the 2010 NBA Draft.

He spent the first two-and-a-half years of his career with the Raptors before being traded to the Memphis Grizzlies.

During that time, Davis posted very consistent numbers as a bench big man, registering around seven points and six boards a night while making over 50 percent of his field-goal attempts.

After spending a year-and-a-half with the Grizzlies, Davis went on to sign a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he started 24 of the 79 contests in which he played and recorded 8.3 points and 7.6 rebounds per game, both career highs.

That ensuing offseason, Davis inked a deal with the Portland Trail Blazers and would proceed to spend the next three years of his career there, the longest stretch he has resided with any one team thus far in his NBA career.

Once again, Davis was very consistent off the bench, and last summer, he signed a one-year deal with the Nets.

Davis owns career averages of 6.5 points and 6.8 rebounds over 20.2 minutes per game while connecting on 56.9 percent of his shots.
