Glen “Big Baby” Davis Looking At G League

Former LSU star and NBA player Glen “Big Baby” Davis is contemplating playing in the G League as a first step in an NBA comeback.

 

“I am considering the G League,” Davis told theundefeated.com, “It’s a great opportunity to show all 30 teams that I can play without getting hurt. They can see what I can still do. This is the best opportunity to make my steps back to the NBA.”

 

“I know it’s going to be a process because I haven’t played in two years,” added the 31-year-old Davis. “But I feel like I’m at the prime in my game and I still have a lot to offer.”

 

Davis, a 6-9, 289-pound forward last played in the NBA with the Clippers in 2014-15.

 

A college star at LSU, Davis led the Southeastern Conference in scoring and rebounding as a sophomore in 2005-06, averaging 18.6 points and 9.7 rebounds and guiding the Tigers to a 27-9 record and the NCAA Tournament’s Final Four

 

He also was named SEC Player of the Year that season.

 

The 35th overall pick in the 2007 Draft by Seattle, Davis has averaged 8 points and 4.4 rebounds in eight NBA seasons with the Celtics, Magic, and Clippers.

 

He averaged a career-best 15.1 points and 7.2 rebounds for Orlando in 2012-13.

 

A high school star at University HS (Baton Rouge, LA), Davis averaged 26.4 points, 14.3 rebounds and 4 blocks as a senior to lead the team to the state championship.
