The Orlando Magic reached a buyout agreement with Glen Davis, and it seems that it didn’t take long for “Big Baby” to find a new NBA team. The Brooklyn Nets were rumored to be pursuing Davis’ services, but are now expected to sign Jason Collins. Why? Because Davis is headed to the Los Angeles Clippers, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

Doc Rivers was reported to be looking for frontcourt depth on trade deadline day, but the Clippers instead ended up dumping Antawn Jamison and Byron Mullens. With practically no big men remaining to back up DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin, it was pretty clear that the Clippers would look at some free agent options, and Davis’ buyout has come at a very convenient time.

Davis is likely a better player than anything the Clippers could realistically have traded for, and should be a solid backup as the team continues to work towards securing homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Davis is averaging 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this season.
