Glen Davis would be a whole lot richer if NBA GMs ignored this past postseason. Davis was a candidate for sixth man of the year after averaging 11.7 points and 5.4 rebounds. Then, the playoffs came and Davis fell apart, as he averaged just 4.9 points and 3.6 rebounds and possibly cost himself millions of dollars.
This past season, Davis made $3.3 million and had he played well in the playoffs, he probably would have received a contract around four years, $30-35 million.
Because of Big Baby’s horrid postseason, I believe many teams will now shy away from him. Davis’ return is a real wildcard. If he thinks he is still worth $30 million, then he will be most likely playing for another team next year. Davis wants to stay a Celtic, but for that to happen he has to realize that he is not worth $8-9 million a year. I expect the Celtics to offer him a deal worth $5 million a year. It will then be up to Davis if he wants to remain a Celtic.
Probability of return: 50%
