Amir will see the court when he remembers he's not supposed to shoot long 2s and 3s, but to rebound, defend and play around the basket.
You are correct, thats why you don't see Val and Davis on the court together too often. They are similar players, and neither can draw a defender to the outside. At least Amir is capable of taking the outside shot, though it seems defenders are giving him that look.

If you had Davis and Val on the floor the paint would be very congested making it difficult for guys like lowry or derozan to get to the rim
