Damian Lillard Calls Jazz C Ed Davis His Favorite Teammate Of All-Time
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Weber State Wildcat and current Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard answered a question on Twitter of who his favorite teammate of all-time is.
Lillard replied with former Trail Blazer and current Utah Jazz center Ed Davis.
Davis spent three seasons with Lillard in Portland from 2015-18.
During that time, Davis played 205 games, starting in 12 contests, averaging 5.6 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. He then left the team and spent one season with the Brooklyn Nets before signing a two-year deal with the Jazz this past off-season.
It really says something that Lillard pegged Davis as his favorite teammate of all-time as the Weber State star is entering his eighth season in the NBA.
Davis is expected to provide depth for the Jazz coming off the bench as the backup center for Rudy Gobert. During the preseason, Davis played in all five games and averaged 4.2 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.
The Jazz will open the 2019-20 season on Wednesday when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder at Vivint Smart Home Arena. The game will tip-off at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet.
