It was Davis’ first full-scaled work with his teammates since he underwent a surgical procedure in March to fix a stress reaction problem in his left knee cap. Davis also suffered a torn labrum last season, but he did not require surgery on his left shoulder. ”I feel great and I’m just happy to be out there,” Davis said. ”I love the game so much that it started to be frustrating when I couldn’t play or they pull you out. The main goal is to be ready for October 26 (opener against Denver). ”Right now, I think I’m heading in the right direction toward getting there. Today everything felt great. I feel like I’m more explosive than what I was and more powerful.”

There have been 20 college big men drafted in the NBA lottery over the past five years; when charting their college production by way of true shooting percentage (to account for their scoring efficiency) and Defensive Box Plus-Minus (an estimated metric that measures points contributed, similar to PER or Win Shares) the results reveal some interesting clustering within the four quadrants. Most notably, the first quadrant features three players: Embiid, Towns, and Davis, three of the league’s best big-man prospects since Tim Duncan.
Embiid has the potential to be a cornerstone big man the Sixers can build around with any type of personnel. The Okafor-Noel pairing doesn’t work because neither player can space the floor; Embiid takes their best qualities and takes it to another level. Embiid’s injury history is alarming; he could hobble down the same path as Greg Oden or prosper in spite of an injury-plagued career like Yao Ming, but he could also come to define the era along with Towns and Davis. Hinkie took a calculated risk with Embiid because, while it’s become trite to call a prospect a “once-in-a-generation” player, Embiid truly looked the part.
