Davis has signed contracts with seven different franchises before now; Chicago, Phoenix, Houston, Milwaukee, Indiana, Philadelphia and Atlanta. He has also played in summer leagues with Denver, Orlando, Portland, Minnesota and New Jersey - pretty much every NBA executive of the last 7 years has had a look at Josh Davis by this time. He didn't play regular season games for all of those teams, but he's managed 368 NBA minutes; 328 of them with Philadelphia, and 40 split between the Bucks, Rockets, Hawks and Suns. When Davis left Wyoming in 2002, he wasn't a good outside shooting, but now it has become his main weapon. Davis can get open for shots on both the interior and the perimeter, and makes a good amount of both; he'll also rebound well and try his best on defense. Problematically, however, he's just not athletic. Last year for Greek team Panellinios, Davis averaged 6.7 points and 4.4 rebounds in the A1 league while struggling with injuries; now aged 30, Davis doesn't seem like a strong candidate to make the roster. He had a lot of troubles doing so when he was only 25.

- Josh Davis
It was only a few short years ago that Josh Davis was putting a run on the most-NBA-teams-played for record, currently jointly held by Jim Jackson, Tony Massenburg and Chucky Brown with 12. However, it's also been a few years since Josh Davis played in the NBA, and a season of good play in the D-League last year did not lead to any new NBA contracts. Therefore, Davis buggered off to Europe, where he's playing for Panellinios in Greece. Davis averages 8.8 points and 4.0 rebounds per game in the Greek league, and I watched him last night. He shot well.
