Big Baby looking for greener pastures


08:06 AM ET 06.21 | Glen Davis just wants to be Glen Davis, whether that's in Boston remains a significant question. The future of the 6-foot-8 forward, an unrestricted free agent as of July 1, is very much in doubt as a member of the Green team. Several factors will come into play as to whether he re-signs with the C's, among them being his relationship with head coach Doc Rivers. ... When asked on Monday by whether Boston was his first choice, Davis replied, "My choice is what's best for my family and career. That's what I concentrate on. I love being here in Boston. But if it's not going to benefit me and my family, I'll pick up (and play elsewhere). That's my concern. That's the only thing I'm focused on now; my family's well-being and my career as a player ... what situation is going to help Glen Davis be Glen Davis."

I don't get it... why is the situation that LA is in called reloading.. but the C's are considered retiring?

We have owners that are willing to go over the cap to get what we need... If I'm a guy like Howard I would see Boston as every bit a good a place to go if I'm looking for a shot at the title

Boston is done...


They deal Perkins with this guy sitting on an expiring contract.

Shaq reitred and Jermaine ONeal is playing less than father time.

The Celts really need this guy, if anything, to provide a body in the middle and 8-10ppg.

If they do not re-sign him, or replace his production, they will be a 2nd round exit again to the Heat or Bulls.

I fully expect for Boston to keep him and hopefully don't overpay the guy for what he is - A decent back up to the 4/5 position.

Someone wanted an injury prone Perk, didn't they? You never know.

Orlando only gives up Howard if he chooses to not re-sign and then lands a free agent deal in Boston...similar to LeBron and Bosh leaving town and then Miami got Toronto and Cleveland to do sign and trades so they could give more money up front.

Howard will have very few good options when he is available.

I bet he stays right in Disney Land...
