I see Ed starting for Amir sometime next season (not necessarily on opening night) . Amir's a professional guy, and I'm sure he would understand if they replace his spot in the starting line up. Especially if Bargnani
is not traded, Ed Davis is a guy that can do the dirty work (defend, rebound). I'm not saying Amir can't, but I think Davis would eventually get to a point where he is simply better than AJ next season.
