When the NBA returns — and it actually will return, suggests Chris Sheridan — Glen Davis will be a free agent rather than a member of the Boston Celtics. And he actually knows where he’s going to play next:
Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
No, Davis isn’t joining a new NBA team that will play its home games in Baton Rouge. Rather, he will compete in the Baton Rouge Pro-Am Classic this weekend with a number of former pros. (Green Street, WEEI)
Big Baby will join Louisiana State University alumni Marcus Thornton (a restricted free agent), Anthony Randolph (Timberwolves) and Ronald Dupree (D-League’s Utah Flash) as well as a host of other NBA talents in the Baton Rouge Pro-Am Classic on Saturday and Sunday.
Grizzlies O.J. Mayo and Zach Randolph, Bucks swingman Stephen Jackson and retired four-time NBA All-Star Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway are also expected to participate in the tournament, scheduled to tip off at 9 a.m. on the Baton Rouge Community College campus. Proceeds from the $5 to $15 tickets will benefit the BRCC men’s and women’s basketball programs.
When last seen playing basketball during the NBA playoffs, Glen Davis was doing his best impression of a disappearing man. Now, his future with the Celtics is in question as they must determine whether he’s worth market value.
On another note: remember when Penny Hardaway wanted to make a comeback last season? Yeah, that worked well. Also, for safety reasons, inviting Zach Randolph and Stephen Jackson to play in the same charity game is not advised.
