Big Baby’s future is a matter of business

Glen Davis [1] is one of the most emotional players on the Celtics [2]. But when it comes to his future and free agency this summer,  it’s all about the business.

‘€œI want to be here in Boston but if the opportunity brings me somewhere else, I’ll be there,’€ Davis said following the Celtics season-ending loss. ‘€œI love Boston, I love the coaches, I love the fans, but like I said, if the opportunity’s somewhere else, it’s somewhere else.’€

Davis, a restricted free agent, has drawn attention since taking Kevin Garnett’s place in the Celtics starting lineup. He averaged nearly 13 points and six rebounds per game as a starter.

Over the course of the season he improved his game by working on his jumper. It paid off when he hit the game-winning shot over the Magic in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. One could argue that Davis has proved himself to the Celtics front office.

‘€œYou can’t worry about that. That’s out of your hands. You’ve done your part,’€ Davis said. ‘€œYou’ve shown you can play. You’ve shown you can do the things to help your team win.  So it’s up to them, what they want to do.’€

Davis put free agency out of his mind and focused on the one thing he could control ‘€“ himself. Playing basketball was always about winning, not making money.

‘€œAll I’ve thought about is just helping my team win,’€ he said. ‘€œI never thought about getting paid or what they’re going to do. But it is what it is.’€
