Davies is a 6-foot-10 center that can also play some power forward. He is long (with a 7-foot-2 wingspan) and is a decent defensive player. Certainly, Davies is best recognized in the public eye for his suspension at Brigham Young two years ago, when he violated the school’s honor code.
The former Cougar averaged 17.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game in 29.3 minutes a night in his senior season. He is efficient and got to the line 7.1 times per game last year. Although he likes playing around the rim, he improved his skill stepping away from the basket as a senior.
Davies has a chance to make the Clippers’ roster if he does impress in Las Vegas. Currently, DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are the only two bigs on the Clippers’ roster. That means Davies might be able to finagle a roster spot if he performs well over the summer.
Here is video highlights of Brandon Davies’ strengths and weaknesses from Fox Sports:
