I agree with the Taj Gibson role comment, Have Ed play a defence, rebounding, energy big off the bench (like amir used to be till his recent play) and trade amir. Amir is good, but everything Amir can do Ed can learn to do, and some. We need to support Ed more, I suggest you let him enjoy a full season and a training camp before truly judging him.
The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.
Would you guys deal him for a defensive wing like Aminu? Both are in the class of high potential not yet brought to fruition.
Can we get someone whom can produce more than Ed at the price we're paying him right now and for the next ..is it two years? He's played well as of late and looks to have accepted a role of being a defensive player. He should come back stronger and more skilled next season and could be a good back up at both PF and C postion. Injuries happen and I think we can all agree that he wasn't ready to step in this season while Gray was, but Gray has already reached his ceiling while Ed has barely begun. If there was a good reason to move him like to have more $$ for free agency or if you could get another good lottery pick then it should be considered, but you're not going to get anything great back for him right now so they should hold onto him and see how he develops...he's still on a rookie scale contract so it doesn't cost the team much having him around and there is a really good chance he breaks out next season if he gets stronger and has a full training camp with Casey. Perhaps I'm over valueing him, but I don't thinks so. As of late he seems to be playing harder.
Not Aminu, the guy is not as good as James Johnson, and may be even less of an offensive threat. While is is 3 years younger, I don't see it as any great upgrade that could put us over any type of hump.
I think giving up on Ed is still a bit premature.
The guy played in his rookie year after being off for a whole season from college basketball. Then he misses training camp due to a knee injury. and this year, no training camp and no practices.
I would trade Amir over him.
Having 2 front court rotation players learn how to play next year, doesn't sound promising (unless their names are Jonas and Anthony).
However, given age, potential, salary, etc... I would imagine that there are a lot more teams interested in trading for Davis than there are for Amir, especially if the Raptors don't want to take salary back.
Plus, if Calderon does stay around next season and even beyond as the veteran backup PG, he and Amir would have good chemistry together to provide some scoring punch to the 2nd unit.
