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.
