Celtics Re-sign Glen “Big Baby” Davis

SoB’s Nathan reported it a few days ago, and the Celtics Monday made the signing of Glen “Big Baby” Davis official. The C’s inked the restricted free-agent power forward to a two-year deal, which will allow him to become a free agent in the summer of 2011. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it’s assumed he signed for about $3.5 million per season (based on the cap situation).

Davis came up huge for the Celtics during the playoffs, helping them advance to a Game 7 in the second round against the Magic. After averaging 7.0 points per game during the regular season, Davis improved to 15.8 ppg and 5.6 rpg while starting in place of the injured Kevin Garnett.

Reaction: It’s good to see Danny Ainge was able to get this deal done, as the Celtics have an extremely strong roster heading into next season. They C’s added beef this offseason, signing Rasheed Wallace and Shelden Williams. Add those two men to Kevin Garnett, Kendrick Perkins, and Big Baby, and the C’s will rarely be overmatched up front.

  2. Not the Celtics, hopefully haha. Vince Carter?…Try Rasheed Wallace, Marquis Daniels, and the return of Big Baby.

  3. Great signing! Davis is a very savy, heady basketball player. Doc has alot of tools to work with this year. This team should be able to create match up problems consistently. The rotation of Davis, Garnett, Wallace and Perk is as good as it get. Besides Perkins the three can play both the 4 and 5. Davis will see alot of time this year.

  4. great signing! Reasonable dollars also. Davis with a loss of weight might show us a a bit more this year eventhough I like his style of play last year. He might be able to play a foot or so farther away from the basket. Not that he will start taking 20 footers all day but just to stretch the defense out some. Keep it going Mr. Davis.
