SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz agreed to trade center Ed Davis to the New York Knicks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The move arrived one day after the Jazz selected center Udoka Azubuike with the No. 27 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft and reportedly traded center Tony Bradley to the Detroit Pistons.

According to the NBA insider, Utah will be sending New York a pair of 2023 second round picks in addition to Davis.

Davis has one year left on the two-year deal he signed with the Jazz in 2019.

The trade was Utah’s fourth trade in two days and the franchise’s second with the Knicks.

Prior to the start of the NBA Draft, the Jazz and Knicks completed a trade that had Utah exchange the No. 23 pick for New York’s No. 27 and No. 38 picks.

Following Bradley’s move to Detroit, the New Orleans Pelicans traded Utah the draft rights to Elijah Hughes, who was selected with the No. 39 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Davis’ departure leaves Azubuike and Rudy Gobert as the only centers on the Jazz roster.
