Glen Davis Closer To Resigning With Celtics


I wrote a post last week assessing what Big Baby's value might be. It seems that teams are not willing to give him that mid-level deal...

"Though the Celtics have not made an offer to Glen Davis, the restricted free agent and his team may be drifting closer together thanks to NBA’s strapped economy. Though Davis is still hopeful of landing a mid-level-sized deal - one that starts at $5.8 million - the field is limited. Detroit, a team with clear interest, has $3.2 million to offer, and is reportedly hesitant to send Davis an offer sheet with the knowledge that the Celtics will gladly match that amount. The Pistons, rather than have their cash placed in limbo by the seven-day period the Celtics would have to match the offer, are instead pursuing other options (Celticsblog)."

Basically there doesn't really seem to be a market for Davis, so he is probably going to have to resign with the Celtics. I really like this. Even with the Celtics signing Wallace I feel like they need a guy who will crash the boards off the bench. Powe used to do a great job of that, but with him on his way out and Davis showing that he can do that and more in the playoffs, I think it is the perfect fit for the Celtics to bring him back...
