It’s official – reports have confirmed that the Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic have completed a sign-and-trade deal, which will send forward Glen Davis to Florida and forward Brandon Bass to Massachusetts.
However, the trade won’t be official until both physicals have been conducted and passed.
Saying, “so long and farewell” to Davis won’t exactly be the easiest thing for team president Danny Ainge, especially since “Big Baby” joined the squad as rookie in ‘07, and was a component of the team’s 17th NBA Championship. Yet, during the past three seasons, Bostonians saw another side of Davis, who not only appeared frustrated, but also demanded a starting job too.
Davis will join a talented unit in Orlando that’ll certainly miss Bass, who finished last season with 11.2 points per game, 5.6 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks.
