I'm liking Ed's hustle of defense and rebounding - the guy goes up hard for every board. But offensively he's limited to little more than lay-ups and dunks. He can hit jumpers within 12 - 14 feet, but for all of Jack and Matt's talk about an improved jumper, I don't see that as a reliable weapon in his offensive arsenal, at least yet.
If he plays a consistent 30min he'd give us 12/10/2, i would take that in a heartbeat with his energy and defense over Bargnani's lack of effort.
