discussing numbers with Davis over the last week, and made an offer
that was considered disappointing by the Davis camp.
Davis started free agency with the hope of earning mid-level ($5.8
million) money, but has yet to draw any offers beyond the one recently
made by the Celtics.
Let's have some fun and speculate about the "disappointing" offer. I'll say it fell along the lines of $2 million – $3 million per year. Anything less would be insulting, considering the Celtics are handing Shelden Williams $1.3 million for 4 points and 4 rebounds per game.
The Herald also printed some of BBD's tweets:
“Why is this (expletive deleted) taking so long!!! I really don’t understand!!!!
Anybody knows what’s going on with the Celtics? Cause I don’t!!!!!
Well I’m not worried about Sheldon!!! Great. Guy and great player!!! But we are different players you know!!!!!
I wonder how the weather (is in) Boston cause I haven’t been there in so long!!!!
I like some of you guys ideas!!!! I going to tell danny (ainge)
about some of you guys ideas!!!! I don’t know why then they sign
(Williams) before me!!
Well I don’t know where I’m going to be!!! Where (you) guys think I’m going to be!!! Who needs a pf?”
The Celtics are dangerously close to pissing off Davis. Then again, since he's a restricted free agent, that doesn't really matter.
