KAT for 3 reasons:

1. KAT  loves Big Al.....the Dominican connection is strong among those two. Towns has looked up to Horford for a long time as a role model and inspiration. Al would bring out the best in this kid which is a pleasantly scary propsition.

2. Davis fragility and his numerous, varied injury history, but particularly his left knee.

3. KAT will cost a lot less.

You're forgetting the important one, though:  Davis is, and has always been, a superior player.  Also, to date KAT has shown no heart.
Yeah, and the superiority you rightly mention is significant. A recognisably better offensive player, and an immeasurably better defensive presence.

Davis, easily.
He is a much more complete player.
Better by miles defensively and physically.
Seems more determined.
Offense game is a wash at best considering KAT is younger.
KAT has better touch though.
