His Boston Celtics career was filled with charges taken, jump shots fired, a weird, public relationship with Doc Rivers, and stretches of inspired play interspersed with flashes of being the worst player on the court. Now, the Celtics have reportedly decided the Glen Davis era has run its course. (Boston Herald)
The Celtics have apparently decided that Glen Davis’ future is better elsewhere.
According to a league source, the Cs are in discussions with Orlando to send Big Baby, in a sign-and-trade deal, to Orlando for power forward Brandon Bass – a player Magic management had been very high on at one stage.
In addition, the Celtics are pursuing Chris Wilcox, a journeyman big man who played with Detroit last season.
Oddly enough, Bass is a lot like Davis, just thinner, less of a defensive presence and far more efficient offensively. That doesn’t sound like they’re very similar, but they’re both jump-shooting, undersized big men with the ability to stretch the floor and make plays.
I like this. Bass makes $4 million per season for each of the next two years. The Celtics weren’t locking up Davis for a deal that small.
