I bet they move Zach Randolph. He makes way too much money, and some teams could really use a brusier like him in the low post. It kinda looks like Memphis is re-building as weird as that sounds considering their position in the West. They get rid of thier best wing player and now are shopping one of their best post players. The new owners are clearly looking to shred salaries.They are already under the luxury tax and still looking to move salaries. Ed was the KEY piece to the Gay trade and he will be starting at some point. Most likely next year, cuz if Memphis trades their leading scorer and best wing player, for a guy who isn't playing and doesn't have a big role going forward, it will look real bad on the GM.
The reason Davis is not playing right now is the depth they have, plus the fact that he is still a young player trying to learn a whole new system. Memphis is in the race so they just can't throw him our there and just give him minutes and let him play through his mistakes. They are going to take their time with him, slowly let him learn the system and allow him to then earn some minutes through hard practices. If he shows real progress, Z-BO will be traded.
So just wait some time, he will be getting minutes.
