Glen Davis could sign a new contract with the Celtics as early as today or tomorrow, according to a source close to negotiations between the restricted free agent and the team.
Davis agreed to a two-year contract worth approximately $6.3
million, including a starting point of approximately $3 million next
season, during talks Friday and yesterday. He was in town and expected
to take a physical today before officially signing the deal.
Great work Danny. This is a steal of a deal for a player of Glen Davis' caliber. If BBD continues to progress like he has the past two years, he will get his payday when the contract is up.
Nothing new on Marquis Daniels. It still looks like he'll get the bi-annual money ($1.9 million).
Rookie Lester Hudson is expected to resume full workouts in two weeks. His agent, Lance Young, tells the Globe that Hudson has impressed the C's so far:
“Minicamp and Summer League were an eye-opener for the Celtics. They
knew [Hudson] could score, but the leadership and defense he brought
was a surprise. He didn’t talk junk, he just did his work and went
about his business.
Young says if the Celtics decide to go with a veteran, Hudson could end up in Europe.
So much for Mark Jackson being a lock for the T-Wolves coaching job. Lakers assistant Kurt Rambis has that sewn up. Who will man the Lakers bench during those road games the ailing Phil Jackson can't coach? Brian Shaw?
