Davis spent four years at the University of Mississippi, starting in 82 of 121 possible games and posting career averages of 12.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. As a senior in 2018-19, Davis averaged a career-high 15.2 points to go along with 5.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.6 steals and earned Second Team All-SEC honours.
While his stock rose leading up to the draft, Davis did not hear his name called as he reportedly turned down multiple team's offers to sign him to a two-way deal after selecting him. He accepted a roster spot with the Denver Nuggets Summer League squad.
Hours before signing with the Raptors, Davis made his Summer League debut and stood out, scoring 22 points (on 8-for-13 shooting) to go along with five rebounds, three assists a steal and a block in 29 minutes of action.
The Raptors have a great history with under-the-radar draft prospects, as evidenced by the difference-making performances from Norman Powell (No. 46 pick, 2015) and Fred VanVleet (Undrafted, 2016) throughout the team's championship run.
As the team retools in preparation for defending its title, expect Davis to develop rapidly under the Raptors staff.
