Terry Raymond Davis (born June 17 1967 in Danville, Virginiamarker) is a retired Americanmarker professional basketball player who, at 6' 9" and 225 lb, played as a power forward and center for the Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks, Washington Wizards, and Denver Nuggets of the National Basketball Association.

Like two other all-around similar players, Charles Oakley before him and Ben Wallace (also undrafted) after him, Davis attended Virginia Union University and made a name for himself as a hard-nosed defensive player and rebounder.

Basketball career

Virginia Union University

In college, Davis played for three seasons as a starter and averaged 22.3 points per game and 11.9 rebounds per game in his final season.

Miami Heat

As a rookie during the 1989-90 NBA season, Davis played in 63 games for the Heat—a team in its second season of existence in the NBA. In 1990-91, Davis played in fewer games (55) but had a higher scoring and rebounding average than he did in the previous season.

Dallas Mavericks

On August 6, 1991, Davis signed with the Mavericks and in his first season with the team, he ranked 15th among all NBA players that season when he grabbed 9.9 rebounds per game.

After another stellar season with the Mavericks in 1992-93, his next three seasons with the team were plagued with injuries and his production slipped heavily.

Washington Wizards

After a year away from the NBA, Davis resurfaced with the Washington Wizards in the 1997-98 season. It was with the Wizards that he gained the distinction of being the first player to score a basket at Washington, D.C.marker's MCI Centermarker. In fact, he scored the first four points of the game that night.

Denver Nuggets

After two continuous seasons with the Wizards, and another full season out of the NBA, Davis signed with the Nuggets for the 2000-01 season and played in just 21 games.

Personal

Davis' 6'10" and 215 lb son, Ed, was ranked second in the class of 2008 by at least one recruiting service. He is currently a sophomore at the University of North Carolinamarker.
