Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis Wants to Stay in Boston

Despite his desire to play a bigger role — which may not be possible on the Celtics — Big Baby insists that he’d like to remain in Green and White. The Boston Herald reports: “Glen Davis certainly picked an angst-ridden summer to become an unrestricted free agent, and not just because it’s a CBA year. For the first time in a young career marked by some great postseason moments, Davis melted into the floorboards last spring. He averaged 4.9 points on 39 percent shooting in nine playoff games, including four points on 31.8 percent shooting in the Eastern Conference semifinal loss against Miami. Davis found himself, once again, on the wrong side of coach Doc Rivers’ ledger, and never recovered. But most general managers stick to the longer view. And once the rush begins to sign free agents for the 2011-12 season, Davis will be in demand … Neither Davis nor Rivers publicly admit to having a problem, though Ainge said he wants the men to talk out their oft-emotional differences if they are to spend another season together. If that opportunity arises, anyway. Davis, at least, asserts that he wants to return. ‘Man, I do,’ Davis said yesterday. ‘Do you know how much I’ve grown and learned with those guys? I want to keep playing with Ray (Allen) and Paul (Pierce) until they leave.’ Too much is unknown, though. In Ainge’s quest to find a capable big man this summer, Davis is probably the Celtics’ best chip in a sign-and-trade deal.”

    Glen Davis thinks Glen Davis should stay in Bean town

  • BostonBaller

    We all knew this would happen..no news…someone would over pay for him, players get overpaid as FA’s all the time then ppl wonder why they didn’t live up to the $$. Did you notice that he didn’t mention KG or RR? no biggi, just wanted to give you something to harp on. lol

    So Glen Davis decided that Glen Davis can be Glen Davis in boston afterall? If this is the conclusion of his rant the other week, then that is hands down the worst rant of all time.

    as a die hard boston fan, i have to say he is prolly the only person here that feels that way

    I’m searching my Glen Davis.

    Golden State… is the best destination for him. They’ll run him until he has less than 10% body fat on him.

    He’ll be aight, there’s nowhere for him to go, once KG’s salary ends and decide to play as a backup in the near future due to age, Davis should have plenty of minutes. Besides who will the C’s use as a big specially now that Krstic is leaving for Europe. I really hope they’ll find a suitable replacement for PERK who can actually play the position!

    What Boston should do is to trade Glen Davis for Nene, Boston really needs a backup center for Jermaine O’Neal
