Tony Dutt, the agent for Brandon Bass, spoke with CSNNE's Sherrod Blakely:
"He's very excited about this opportunity in Boston," his agent Tony Dutt, told CSNNE.com. "Things didn't go quite like we thought they would in Orlando, but he has no hard feelings towards them. He's looking forward to being a Celtic."
"He just needs to be in the right system, and Doc's system seems perfect for him," Dutt said. "He knows the situation there; that he'll get an opportunity to really show what he can do as a player."
Dutt acknowledges that replacing Davis won't be easy. But Bass, he says, is more than up to the challenge.
"I think the Celtics have upgraded, I really do," Dutt said. "And that's no disrespect to Glen Davis. I think Glen is a very good player; he really is. But Brandon … he's a special player. And in the right situation, the right system, he can prove that. That's why going to Boston is such a great situation for him."
Standard agent speak.
As for Glen Davis, Yahoo! reports he's getting a 4 year deal worth $26 million from Orlando. His annual salary is jumping from $3 million to $6.5 million.
I'm happy for Glen Davis. He had some great moments here in Boston. But it's time to move on.
The Magic had to amnesty Gilbert Arenas to finalize this deal. Agent Zero is now on the market.
