7-rooters that play like guards are extremely hard to come by, and not all that valuable if they are not going to play like 7-rooters. Bigs that have defensive instincts like Davis are not only rare, but the impact can be immeasurable. Let's just throw that away and wait another 16 years for a team that can get some stops.
