Magic Working On Glen Davis Buyout

February 19 2014 at 6:27pm CDT By Zach Links

The Magic are working on a contract buyout with forward Glen Davis, a league source tells Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports (via Twitter).  Orlando was dangling the big man at the deadline but they were unable to find a taker.  The buyout must be OK’d by the player’s union before it becomes officlal, tweets Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

Davis is due to earn the remainder of his $6.4MM salary this season and $6.6MM in 2014/15.  The 28-year-old is coming off of a year in which he averaged 15.1 PPG and 7.2 RPG with a 15.0 PER in an injury-shortened season.  So far in 2013/14, Davis has been bitten by the injury bug once again.  He’s putting up 12.1 PPG and 6.3 RPG in 30.1 minutes per contest this season.

  1. Davis has been ok, but the Magic will never be any kind of contender again unless they get rid of these kind of contracts and get true talent…
