Davis was extended a qualifying offer by the Kings on Tuesday, making him a restricted free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Davis spent the first part of the season with the Raptors before being traded to the Kings on March 25. He appeared in 27 games with Sacramento and averaged 11.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 steals in 21.5 minutes. He also shot 36.7 percent from three overall on the season. Wherever he lands in free agency, he'll likely be a reserve option on the wing.
Davis posted 20 points (8-14 FG. 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT). three rebounds, two steals and an assist across 32 minutes in Sunday's 121-99 loss to the Jazz.
The untimely losses of De'Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton likely cost the Kings a playoff spot, but players like Davis and Delon Wright did their level best in picking up the slack. Davis' minutes picked up in May after the onslaught of backcourt absences, and the former Toronto Raptor enjoyed more playing time than he had with his former team during his two-month tenure in Sacramento. With both Fox and Haliburton back next season, Davis will likely find himself in a backup role one again.
Davis finished Thursday's loss to the Grizzlies with 16 points (6-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists, three steals and a blocked shot across 28 minutes.
The second-year guard did a little of everything in a game that Sacramento narrowly lost. He has come on strong as the regular season winds to its close, averaging 18.8 points, 4.7 boards, 3.3 assists and 1.8 steals over his past six contests.
Davis racked up 27 points (9-15 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two steals across 31 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Thunder.
Davis delivered another excellent scoring performance off the bench and has cleared 20 points in two of his last three games; he's also put up at least 18 points in four of his last five appearances. Over that five-game stretch, he's averaged 19.4 points per contest.
Davis generated 18 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and two steals across 30 minutes in Sunday's 126-98 win over the Thunder.
Davis and Delon Wright have been the main beneficiaries since Tyrese Haliburton sustained a season-ending knee injury May 2. With top point guard De'Aaron Fox (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) also still relegated to the sideline, Davis has stepped into a more prominent role out of necessity and hasn't disappointed. Over his last four games, Davis is averaging 17.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.5 three-pointers and 1.5 steals in 28.5 minutes. Daivs' production and playing time will take a step back if Fox makes it back for any of the final four games of the regular season, but the Kings have thus far been unwilling to offer up a target date for Fox's return.
Davis scored 24 points (10-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt) while adding three rebounds, three steals and an assist in 33 minutes off the bench during Friday's loss to the Spurs.
It was another big night for the former Raptor, who has scored in double digits in four of the last five games. Davis is averaging 15.0 points, 4.0 boards, 2.6 assists, 2.6 threes and 1.2 steals over that stretch in 26.0 minutes, but his workload is likely contingent on De'Aaron Fox (COVID-19 protocols) remaining sidelined.
Davis has hit double figures in scoring in two of his last three outings, averaging 13.7 points on 43.8 percent shooting while chipping in 3.7 boards, 3.3 assists and 2.7 three-pointers in 25.7 minutes per contest.
Sacramento has been without Harrison Barnes (groin) and De'Aaron Fox (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) for all of those contests, while Tyrese Haliburton (knee) was sidelined for Tuesday's win over the Thunder. Those absences have paved the way for Davis to get more opportunities as a secondary scorer, and he's been able to take advantage. Haliburton is expected to miss the rest of the season, and Barnes and Fox will remain out through Wednesday's game in Indiana, so Davis should handle an expanded role for at least one more contest.
Davis finished with 23 points (9-12 FG, 5-5 3Pt)three rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's 121-107 victory over the Mavericks.
Davis caught fire in Sunday's victory, turning in one of his best performances of the season. A night like this is more of an exception to the rule when it comes to Davis' fantasy value and so there is no reason to go running to the waiver wire to pick him up.
Davis tallied a season-high 27 points (10-14 FG, 7-10 3Pt) to go with three rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 23 minutes Saturday in the Kings' 129-128 loss to the Bucks.
After hanging on the periphery of head coach Nick Nurse's rotation toward the end of his time in Toronto, Davis has emerged as an indispensable part of the Kings' second unit since being acquired from the Raptors on March 25. Over his first five outings with Sacramento, Davis is averaging 12.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.6 treys and 1.0 assists in 20.4 minutes per game while shooting 50 percent from the field.
Davis made his Kings debut Saturday night against the Cavs and finished with six points (2-6 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 18 minutes.
Davis came over from Toronto at the deadline and made an instant impact off the bench. Davis' ability to play multiple positions should keep him in the Kings' regular rotation, though with three high-minute players -- De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Tyrese Haliburton -- in the starting five, plus Delon Wright off the bench, Davis will likely struggle to become fantasy-relevant.
Davis (recently traded) is available for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
It's not clear what sort of role Davis will have with the Kings, but he'll presumably be in contention to back up Tyrese Haliburton and Buddy Hield. In 34 appearances this season, Davis has averaged 6.9 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 14.5 minutes.
Davis was traded to the Kings on Thursday in exchange for a future second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Davis has shown some flashes across his first two seasons in the NBA, and the Kings get to take a look for a relatively low price as the Raptors look to shed roster spots in anticipation of a Kyle Lowry trade. Davis should see some backup minutes on the wing with the Kings, but it would be a surprise if he significantly outpaces the 14.5 minutes per game he's seen this season.
Davis will come off the bench Wednesday against the Pistons, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
With the Raptors getting Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet back from the COVID-19 protocols, Davis will return to a reserve role. In 29 appearances off the bench this season, Davis has averaged 6.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists.
Davis finished Sunday's loss to the Bulls with six points (2-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt), three rebounds, an assist and a block.
Starting at the two-guard spot, Davis played 23 minutes but was unable to capitalize on the increased opportunity. The second-year guard occasionally shows some flashes of his potential, but even with several regulars sidelined, he hasn't been nearly consistent enough to warrant attention in most fantasy leagues.
Davis will start Sunday's game against the Bulls, Erik Koreen of The Athletic reports.
Coming off of four straight losses, the shorthanded Raptors will try something new and go with Davis at shooting guard, while Norman Powell shifts up to small forward. DeAndre' Bembry will move to the bench.
Davis (ankle) is available for Thursday's game against Atlanta, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Davis was a game-time decision for Thursday's game, but he tested his ankle out prior to the contest and will be able to return to the court. Assuming he's fully healthy, Davis could see significant run for the Raptors with Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby, Pascal Siakam, Patrick McCaw and Malachi Flynn unavailable due to COVID-19 protocols.
Davis (ankle) is a game-time decision for Thursday's game against Atlanta, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Davis will test out his ankle ahead of Thursday's matchup, although coach Nick Nurse said that he'd be surprised if he didn't play against the Hawks. If he's ultimately available, Davis could have a significant role with several key contributors unavailable for the Raptors due to COVID-19 protocols.
Davis (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Hawks, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.
The 23-year-old suffered the left ankle sprain during the final game before the All-Star break, and he's not yet fully healthy after the midseason hiatus. If available Thursday, Davis should be significantly involved for Toronto since Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby, Pascal Siakam, Patrick McCaw and Malachi Flynn are all unavailable due to the COVID-19 protocols.
Davis was helped to the locker room during Thursday's game against the Celtics due to a sprained ankle, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.
Davis was excellent off the bench in this loss, scoring 22 points to go along with three rebounds and four assists across 32 minutes prior to having to leave late in the contest. The extent of the injury is unclear at this time, but the good news for Davis is that the team now has a week off with the All-Star break coming up.
Davis will come off the bench Thursday against the Celtics.
Coach Nick Nurse gave Davis the start Wednesday against the Pistons, but he'll opt to start Bembry instead against the Celtics. Davis should still see more run than usual with Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam all out due to COVID-19 protocols.
