The Clippers and Glen Davis continue to talk, and the team expects it will re-sign Big Baby, reports Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles.com (on Twitter). Clippers coach/executive Doc Rivers reportedly reached out to representatives of Davis soon after free agency began last week. It’s been an active Friday so far for the Clips, as they’ve been negotiating with Cole Aldrich and Austin Rivers as they maintain interest in Josh Smith.
Davis, 29, has a relationship with Doc that dates back to their days with the Celtics. The Clips have Early Bird rights on Davis to pay him up to about $6MM, though it’s unlikely he’ll command quite that much after playing last season on the minimum salary.
The eight-year veteran averaged career lows in points and minutes per game in 2014/15. Still, the John Hamilton client was one of only eight players to average more than 10 minutes per game in the playoffs for the Clippers this spring.
