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.
