Available free agent No. 2: Terence Davis
In a world where Isaac Okoro suffers a lengthy injury, slotting Terence Davis into his spot would be a suitable filler until Okoro’s return. Davis is a strong perimeter defender, though he is not as good as Okoro. On offense, though, Davis shot 36.6 percent on 3.8 three-point attempts last year.
Terence Davis has spent his last two-and-a-half seasons in Sacramento, averaging around 15 minutes per game since his arrival. Davis has averaged 8.2 points per game in that time on a 53.4 efficient field goal percentage.
The 26-year-old guard still sits in the pool of free agents, looking for another chance to earn a rotational spot on a good team. In his four seasons, Davis has had a positive impact on the court. Certainly, whatever team signs him will benefit from the addition. Hopefully, then, the city to appreciate Davis is Cleveland.
Davis is not a ceiling raiser in Cleveland, but he gives insurance if any of the Cavaliers’ current guards or wings cannot play.
In the NBA Playoffs, having Davis as an extra three-and-D option might be a game-changer in critical moments. Davis is a strong player who is willing to play his role. Last year, 49.2 percent of Davis’ three-point attempts came off of catch-and-shoot opportunities. On those attempts, Davis sank 35.8 percent, per NBA stat tracker.
In Cleveland, Davis’ role would not be solidified immediately. But, his skillset mixed with hustle and determination could earn Davis a consistent spot in Cleveland’s rotation throughout the regular season.
On a minimum deal, Davis is a no-brainer.
