        Is ed davis the odd man out? I haven't heard casey mention him in any of the interviews i've seen. to me it either looks like they are going to move him to the center spot (not sure he can play there, but hey) or he is on the trading block. I really really really like davis going forward and the only way trading him makes sense is if it is for a low lottery pick in next years draft. even then i'd probably pass.

          The one time I heard Casey mention Davis he basically said he doesn't know much about him. Sorry I don't remember where i read this.

            SI.com: You’re an advanced stats guy, right? You look at points per possession, plus/minus and five-man lineups, right?

            Casey: Oh, yeah. That started for me in Seattle, where we had Dean Oliver [now ESPN's director of production analytics]. I didn’t really understand the value of those numbers at that point, even though Wally Walker [a longtime Seattle executive] was really pushing us to embrace it. But being from the old school of coaching, I didn’t really know what to do with all of it.

            And in Minnesota, we just didn’t have anything like that. But in Dallas, Rick Carlisle and Mark Cuban have embraced analytical numbers, and they have been so valuable to us in terms of what lineups we put on the floor. And I know Toronto already has guys in place who do this. This is the new wave in the NBA.
            If he really looks at advanced stats, then Bargnani's a goner, barring improvement the NBA has never seen before.

                    he really only ever mentions DeMar and Bargs and Amir (a little). I think they are the only 2 he's met and been prepped on by BCo. Dude just wrapped up a finals win, got hired, straight to the draft etc. He's finding his feet in a completely new environment so give him some time. Special Ed missed 30 games anyway so it's not like he was down in Dallas saying: "y'know what? That Ed Davis kid is something special. I should follow his twitter feed just in case I get hired by the raps this summer."

                    If he still doesn't know who Ed is in mid October THEN start worrying. Until then raps fans need to chiiiiiiilllllll. Every other thread is some conspiracy built on reading between the lines and being super paranoid.
                    LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!

                      I think you guys are reading way too much into it. I don't hear him speak of Bayless either, it doesn't mean they're going anywhere.

                        Remember Ed and Demar is our 2nd and 3rd option, with Andrea being that streaky shooter.. We still looking for that missing piece to come forward and take over this ship in the form of a point gaurd or a center...

                            The never talking about Ed thing kind of worried me but I'll wait till a training camp. Him and BC never once mentioning the defensive potential of big Val and Ed playing together is what really worries me. They should all be salvitating over it.

                              I don't think I heard them mentioning Val or Derozan or for that matter many players, I wouldn't worry about it. I don't think anyone is making up their minds this early. We have a lot of cherries on the tree, lets wait till we see which ones are ready. Talent wise, we have a lot nice pieces growing at the same time.

                              Sometimes the ones he talks about the most now, are the ones he needs to focus on, or the ones he sees he can benefit most. Hence Andrea, and Derozan having the athleticism to be a great defender but it not showing on the others side of the ball. So the lack of talk may be a good thing.


                              (Basically, I don't think he is coming here with a closed mentality, and I have a feeling he talks about Davis plenty, just that there are limited sound bites and the reporters know that if you put Andrea's name into it it will get more hits.)
