Brooklyn Nets economically fill roster need with free agent Ed Davis

Former Portland big man, Ed Davis, is coming to the Brooklyn Nets.

The Brooklyn Nets made the surprising move of picking up former Portland Trailblazer, Ed Davis, on Friday night for a reported one-year deal worth $4.4 million, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The move was fairly unexpected, with most projecting Davis to stay on the Blazers or move to a more competitive team like the Philadelphia 76ers.

The deal appears to be pretty smart for the Nets, as Davis is a versatile big man who could form an interesting combination with Jarrett Allen or give the team some semblance of a stopgap behind him.
