Davis continued to be one of the league's most effective rebounders during the 2018-2019 season. Despite playing only 17.9 minutes per game across 81 games with Brooklyn, the 29-year-old was able to grab a career-best 8.6 rebounds per contest. That figure was good for 21st in the league, and Davis was the only player inside the NBA's top-50 rebounders to play fewer than 20 minutes per game. For his career, he's now averaging 6.8 rebounds per game in 20.2 minutes of floor time per night. Davis seems to know his role, as he attempted just 3.7 shots per game for the season, and for his career he's only averaged 4.7 shots per game. Not surprisingly, Davis did almost all of his offensive work from inside the arc, as just two of his 302 shots all season came from 3-point range. He was an efficient post scorer when he did shoot the ball, registering a 61.6 shooting percentage. That nearly matched the 61.7 percent he registered at the free-throw line. Davis was slightly less impactful on the defensive end, as he recorded fewer than one block per 36 minutes for the first time in his career.
