The teams believed to have interest
in Davis are Boston, Detroit, Utah, New Orleans, and Portland. Hamilton
(BBD's agent) met with Celtics president Danny Ainge in Las Vegas yesterday, but
Davis was not offered a contract. If he were to sign an offer sheet
from another team, the Celtics would have seven days to match it.
to sources, the Pistons have been trying to clear salary cap space to
make an offer to Davis. Detroit and New Orleans might need to offer a
sign-and-trade deal to make a run at the Baton Rouge, La., native.
Although the Jazz announced last night they will match the $32 million
offer sheet signed by forward Paul Millsap from the Trail Blazers, they
are also expected to trade forward Carlos Boozer, which would keep the
interest in Davis alive. If Millsap’s offer sheet is matched by Utah,
Portland’s interest in Davis could grow.
What if an offer sheet never comes? Danny will have to make a move at some point, right?
The first week of free agency was enjoyable, the 'Sheed signing and speculation about lots of names. Now there appears to be tumbleweeds blowing through the offices on Causeway Street.
