Wolves finalize deal with Knicks for veteran forward Davis
The Minnesota Timberwolves acquired veteran forward Ed Davis from the NewYork Knicks for Jacob Evans III, Omari Spellman and a 2026 second-rounddraft pick in a trade finalized Tuesday.
The 31-year-oldDavis has played in 668 regular-season games, with 96 starts, for six NBA teams. He has averaged 6.3 points and 6.6 rebounds during his career.
The 6-foot-9 Davis was drafted 13th overall in 2010 by the Toronto Raptors. He’ll help fill an opening at power forward created by the departure of James Johnson in the draftnight deal that brought point guard Ricky Rubio back to the Timberwolves.
Evans and Spellman played sparingly for Minnesota last season after coming with headliner D’Angelo Russell from Golden State in the trade that sent Andrew Wiggins to the Warriors.
