‘Big Baby’ has already clashed with old coach Doc Rivers this season.
Glen Davis is reportedly expected to leave the Los Angeles Clippers in free agency this summer in order to secure a more lucrative long-term deal elsewhere.
Having joined the Clippers after completing his buy-out with the Orlando Magic, it is reported that he is scheduled to make $6.4m this season.
In addition, he has a player option to remain in Los Angeles next year on a veteran minimum deal, but given the fact that he is able to make more money elsewhere in a better situation for him personally, it is expected that he will consider his options as a free agent.
Last week in Houston, Davis clashed with coach Doc Rivers on the sidelines during the game and was removed before being escorted back to the locker room from the bench for speaking out of turn.
Davis has played just 12 minutes per game since joining the Clippers in January, and while he is averaging a career-low 3.4 points, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe believes that he is worth more than the league minimum and will sign somewhere else as a free agent.
Nevertheless, the situation may change if Davis can prove his maturity and play a pivotal role in the Clippers’ run in the playoffs.
That in turn could force the franchise to re-think their stance if he can become a reliable presence on the roster and would ultimately lead to negotiations over a new deal.
However, if that does not happen, then he will be forced to consider his options and see if there are any offers on the table that can entice him away from Los Angeles.
