Davis said he also received serious interest from the Los Angeles Clippers, but he ultimately decided to don the purple and gold and sign with the other team that inhabits Staples Center. “I just wanted to find the perfect situation for this upcoming season and for the future,” Davis said. “I didn’t want to take a deal just because it was more money and it might look better – I really wanted to go somewhere that had a need for me and wanted me rather than just joining a team to fill out the roster. For me, it was really just waiting it out and seeing which team had the most interest and seeing where I could go to really help the team and get a chance to play. Basketball Insiders

Forward Ed Davis, now an unrestricted free agent, confirmed Monday what I wrote last November when he didn’t come to terms on a contract extension with the Grizzlies. “I did have an offer from Memphis,” Davis said, “and I turned it down.” For the record, Davis didn’t sound bitter about his time with the Grizzlies. He acknowledged that Memphis wasn’t the best situation basketball-wise and said this circumstance only serves as motivation. Memphis Commercial Appeal

It was the first of several early season clashes between Joerger and Pera. When the Grizzlies opened the season 2-3 -- including double-digit defeats to Dallas and New Orleans -- Pera flew to Memphis and held individual meetings with players, sources say. He began offering bizarre suggestions. He suggested Mike Miller, a longtime Grizzlies player who was re-signed in the offseason, could become a player-coach. He brought up the idea that Joerger could wear an NFL-style headset and take instructions on the sideline. When the Grizzlies faced Golden State in early November, Pera insisted that Joerger give significant minutes to fourth-year power forward Ed Davis. Davis played just one. Again, according to sources, Pera insisted that Joerger had to go. Only after it was explained how dysfunctional the franchise would look if it fired a first year head coach six games into the season did Pera back down. SI.com

The inconsistent playing time Ed Davis received in his first full season in Memphis would suggest that there is a measure of uncertainty within the organization whether the former Toronto draftee really is the ready-made replacement for Z-Bo (if necessary) he's been billed by some to be. The safe bet, though, is that Davis' agent, Rob Pelinka, will be able to generate an offer sheet in free agency that comes in higher than Memphis was hoping to spend on the 24-year-old. Stay tuned.
