Ed Davis told me he also received serious interest from the Clippers before ultimately deciding to join the Lakers: basketballinsiders.com/ed-davis-excit…

Mike Trudell

Boozer praised young bigs Julius Randle and Ed Davis ("studs"). Versatility is key to Boozer, as all have to be open to diff. lineups.

Eric Pincus

Here’s @SerenaWinters’ exclusive one-on-one interview with the newest Laker, Ed Davis. Enjoy: lakersnation.com/lakers-ed-davi…

Alex Kennedy

I talked to @Ed Davis about joining the Lakers, learning from Kobe Bryant, expectations for next season and more: ow.ly/ztKhv

Gary Lee

I’d ideally like to see Ed Davis split minutes at center with Jordan Hill. We need Robert Sacre to energize the bench and crowd next season.

Gary Lee

Ed Davis also talked about the “defensive mindset” the Lakers need to have next year at his press conference. Good. lakersnation.com/ed-davis-on-bo…

Gary Lee

At his introductory press conference moments ago, Ed Davis says he “would love to be” in Los Angeles long-term. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-ed…

Eric Pincus

The only real tidbit we got from Mitch Kupchak was that he wore the same # as Ed Davis (21) when Kup was at North Carolina

Dave McMenamin

Was Ed Davis guaranteed playing time to get him to sign the discount $1m deal? "Not at all. I think it’s tough to say that without a coach"

Sean Highkin

Ed Davis should have picked 23 to make it easier for Lakers fans to recruit Anthony Davis in 2020.

Eric Pincus

If Ed Davis plays center - Lakers won't be big - but they could be athletic -- remember not a lot of true centers these days anyway in NBA

Eric Pincus

Ed Davis talked about defense, learning from both Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph

Eric Pincus

Mitch Kupchak introduced Ed Davis and then quickly slipped out - so no updates from the Lakers GM on coach, or lack thereof

Eric Pincus

Ed Davis presser is complete - if Davis is going to play some 5 as he suggested - he's not especially tall/big for a 4

Gary Lee

Baby Z-Bo. RT @SerenaWinters: Ed Davis says Julius Randle reminds him of Zach Randolph a bit.

Gary Lee

Ed Davis was probably stuck in his Lamborghini, but the press conference is getting started now. Follow @SerenaWinters for live updates.

Janis Carr

Ed Davis: See role? I can play both positions, 4 and 5.

Dave McMenamin

Mitch Kupchak upon presenting Ed Davis with his No. 21 jersey: "That was my college number at North Carolina"

Dave McMenamin

Ed Davis fun fact: His father Terry Davis played 10 years in the NBA. LAL now has 3 players w/ dads who played pro sports (Kobe, Sacre)

Mike Trudell

Mitch Kupchak is here to introduce Ed Davis, who just signed his contract upstairs. Called Davis a "young player w/a very promising future."

Gary Lee

While we all wait for Ed Davis, Paul George is back home for his youth basketball camp and talked about the Lakers. lakersnation.com/paul-george-it…

Janis Carr

Waiting for Ed Davis, who is 15 minutes late. Let me say that again....

Mike Trudell

Random thought: LAL can roll out some lefty-heavy lineups this season: Julius Randle, Ed Davis and Xavier Henry are all lefties.

Gary Lee

MT @Los Angeles Lakers: The Lakers will hold an introductory press conference for @Ed Davis. With 32 unavailable, he'll wear 21. http://t.co/ecn9mnJeyb

Alex Kennedy

I talked to @Ed Davis about his free agency experience, why he joined the L.A. Lakers and more in this interview: ow.ly/ztKnZ

Gary Lee

What’s the latest on Ed Davis? The new Laker says he’d like to drive a Lamborghini, but he’s “too big." Must be nice. lakersnation.com/tmz-lakers-ed-…

Alex Kennedy

I talked to @Ed Davis about his free agency experience, why he signed with the Lakers and more in this interview: ow.ly/ztKhv

Alex Kennedy

Just did a phone interview with new Lakers big man @Ed Davis. Article will be up in the morning. I'll tweet it out when it's on the site.

Alex Kennedy

I still can't believe the Lakers were able to sign Ed Davis to a 2-year, $2 million deal (with a player option next season). That's a steal.

Eric Pincus

Lakers have chosen to celebrate my birthday tomorrow by introducing Ed Davis at 11am

Eric Pincus

The Lakers will have Rob Pelinka clients this season - Kobe, Ed Davis, Carlos Boozer and Wes Johnson - Chris Kaman out to Portland

Eric Pincus

My understanding is that there was a reasonable market of suitors for Kelly - more than for Wes, Henry, Ed Davis, etc.

Jaime Martinez Lafargue

Robert Sacre, Jordan Hill, Ed Davis y Carlos Boozer, juego interior de los #Lakers #estápasando #alguna franquicia que quiera un fan nuevo?

Kendall Marshall

yup, he won 2 outta 3, and we played AAU together RT @NafizzleGbs: @Kendall Marshall did you and @Ed Davis play against each other in high school?

Eric Pincus

Boozer and Ed Davis both have the same agent as Kobe - Pelinka - not shocking Lakers getting both - last year Wes and Kaman Pelinka clients

Kamenetzky Brothers

Yes. Yes it does. BK RT @chrisikeaustin: @Kamenetzky Brothers it also blocks Ed Davis who does have potential.

Tony Jones

And the lakers already have Ed Davis?? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH POWER FORWARDS EVERYWHERE!!!!

Yannis Koutroupis

Carlos Boozer and Ed Davis are great value pick ups for the Lakers, but pushing Randle down depth chart is bad for the long-term picture.

Tom Ziller

From "LeBron AND Melo" to "Jordan Hill, the Swagged One, Jeremy Lin, Ed Davis and Carlos Boozer" in like three weeks.

Paul Flannery

The dream dies hard. RT @YourManDevine: But Ed Davis tho
