BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Celtics are sending Glen “Big Baby” Davis to the Orlando Magic, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.
The Celtics would land forward Brandon Bass in the sign-and-trade deal. Known as an undersized power forward, Bass averaged 11.2 points and 5.7 rebounds per game for the Magic last season. Over his six-year career, Bass has averaged 7.7 points and 4.1 rebounds per contest.
Davis, a free agent, had an up and down season for Boston in 2010-11. He started the season off strong, and finished with a career high 11.7 points per game, but his play fell off near the end of the season and in the playoffs.
And the Glen Davis era has officially concluded in Boston. The Celtics reportedly have a sign and trade deal with Davis, sending him to Orlando for Brandon Bass. Bass is like a larger, better scoring version of Leone Powe. He grinds to get rebounds and can score around the hoop. Unlike Davis, you won’t see tears from Bass or a drunk Dougie’ dance in a dimly lit living room. Instead you get a guy who keeps his mouth shut and looks like a jacked black gladiator without a shirt.
Davis had some great games as a Celtic and his offense was a staple to the second unit. But his constantly stoned thoughts that he couldn’t keep from spewing out of his mouth along with his horrendous shot selection is what Baby will be remembered by. Thanks for the memories baby, now go choke on it.
