Report: Celtics Trade Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis to Orlando For Brandon Bass

As we approach the official beginning of free agency/trading season (just under one hour away), the deals are starting to hit the digital newswire one after the next. Yahoo!‘s Marc Spears is reporting that the Boston Celtics are sign-and-trading Glen “Big Baby” Davis to the Orlando Magic in exchange for power forward Brandon Bass:

UPDATE: HOOPSWORLD is reporting that Von Wafer will be going to Orlando with Big Baby courtesy of a sign-and-trade. His new deal will last for three years, though only the first is guaranteed.

    Jameer, Baby and Stan are all going to look like Eric Cartman by the time the season ends.

  • TScott

    They are the same exact player….

    Great news… now, with all that Latin cooking and Eddy Curry in Florida, watch Big Baby’s waist expand!

    Ummm….I doubt this is the move DHow was talking about.

  • bigmike100

    ummmmmm so….

    Why would Orlando do this? Is Big Baby better than Bass? I guess they save money, but they should have thought about that before getting, Hedo and ARenas. Lol.

  • riggs

    YES!! great move by the C’s

  • D12FSU

    this is just so Ryan Anderson can start without haveing to put Bass back on the bench…they are pretty much the same player

  • Heals

    Sideways move, maybe better for Orl right now as too many of their bigs like playing outside exclusively. At least Bass will be able to finish Rajon’s oop passes more often. I think everybody who has watched Bass play keeps hoping it will catch on with him, but it just hasn’t. Between Rajon, Green and Bass the C’s are more athletic, but they are also 3 players that may have fans frustrated more often because of what could be with them…

    lol what?^

    Good trade for Boston. They replace someone that complains for pretty much the same player.

    Hey Orlando, enjoy Big Baby! He gets blocked more than any other guy in the L, he thinks he can shoot the 3, and he’s selfish as hell.

    P.S. I like Bass in Boston. I think he’ll fit right in, but they still need a 5.

    I don’t think they’re the same player at all. Yes they both like the mid range shot, but Big Baby LOVES it. Bass is more inclined to play near the basket, he’s 3x as explosive and he knows his role. Big Baby believes he’s an all star and shoots like one.

    For crying out loud..Orlando Magic PLEASE get rid of all the low hanging fruit…….Hedo MUST go NOW….glad to see Arenas be dumped…
    Magic …look at trading Jameer for Rondo….come on show Howard that you want to win!!!!!!

    While I kind of enjoyed Big Baby’s antics, I like the trade. We get a similar player who’s bigger, more athletic and plays around the bucket.

    I’m just waiting for Stern to veto this trade. He’ll say “the orlando magic get better ever so slightly, the magic get worse a tiny lil bit, so i’m vetoing this trade because of basketball reasons…”

  • Matt Terry

    I’m glad to see Big Baby coming to Orlando and think he will help the team. He’s a bull on defense and an upgrade from BB.

  • Groves

    Terrible Move by Orlando. :( sad to be a magic fan

  • bt

    @chukaz a) your post doesn’t make sense, b) it wasn’t funny, c) Stern can’t veto every trade, only those of new orleans as the NBA owns the team. Do your research

  • BostonBaller

    I’ll miss Davis a lot but I do think Bass is an upgrade and may be better in the locker room. What are the odds that Big Baby jumps on Jameer’s back for a ride? lol

    I don’t know about any of this… for my money, I wish the Magic went after NENE and played him at PF along side Dwight. Neither Big Baby or Brandon “double” Bass are a good fit for Dwight…
