Cedevita have been through a few import big man options this year. They started with Aaron Pettway, but he was soon replaced; they replaced him with Trent Plaisted, but he didn't last long either. Third time's a charm, though, and they eventually found veteran Corsley Edwards, who is 32 years old now but still effective. Edwards pretty much can't jump any more, but he's also an immovable load on the interior, and on the days when he feels like taking it up strong, he gets buckets around the basket; Edwards averages 13.8 points and 6.7 rebounds in only 25.7 minutes of Eurocup play. The trade-off is absolutely no perimeter defense, and lots of fouls through trying to do so anyway.
[...] Cedevita got here on account of the Draper + shooters combination, a combination that became good enough to make it once Wright was brought in. Could it be enough to take them the whole way? Maybe. Ask Damjan Rudez about that, for he may hold the key. But the prospect of either Corsley Edwards or Vedran Vukusic trying to check Maciej Lampe is a worrying one.

Corsley Edwards - 2 games, 26.5 mpg, 16.0 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 0.0 apg, 3.5 fpg, 0.0 spg, 1.5 bpg, 46% FG, 14% 3PT, 70% FT
[...] Mays missed a game on May 15th, and ex-NBA big man Jermareo Davidson was brought in to replace him. And when Mays returned in time for the next game, Davidson took the place of Anderson, who did not play for the team again. However, Davidson underperformed, and another ex-NBA player from this past CBA season, Corsley Edwards, filled his role. Edwards averaged 29.3 points, 8.3 points and 2.7 assists in 39 minutes per game in China, shooting 55% from the field, 69% from three point range (somehow) and 78% from the line, leaving only when he broke a finger. Included in there was a 50 point outing and a 47 point outing, and in 15 games he never scored less than 20. He might have done something similar in Puerto Rico had he had more than two games to work with.

Both Edwards and Pickett are former NBA draft picks; Edwards was the last pick in 2002 by Sacramento, and Pickett was picked one place after Trevor Ariza by the Pistons (44th) in 2004. Edwards was 3rd in the league in scoring with his 29.5ppg average, but he left the team in late January after breaking his finger and returned to America.

- Corsley Edwards
Former Sacramento Kings draft pick Corsley Edwards is in China....or he was, until he broke his finger this week and returned home. On the season, Edwards is averaging 29.3 points, 8.3 points and 2.7 assists in 39 minutes per game, shooting 55% from the field, 69% from three point range (somehow) and 78% from the line. Included in there was a 50 point outing and a 47 point outing, and in 15 games he never scored less than 20. Pretty good, Corsley. Pretty good.
