Ranking Best Potential Destinations for Glen Davis in Free Agency

Big Baby is without a home...for the moment, anyway.

Veteran big man Glen Davis is being bought out by his team, the Orlando Magic. The official announcement will come Friday, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski

Why are the Magic parting ways with Davis? According to Brian K. Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel, they had no more use for Davis (and his surly attitude) on a young, rebuilding team:

Magic have told Glen Davis that younger guys are going to play. Club also wants his mood swings out of locker room (sic).


Davis has struggled with losing, and had a temper tantrum at Orlando hotel. Broke locker room (sic) door last season after booted from practice.

So it seems clear that Big Baby should stay away from any losing team. But he could bring value to a contender.

Davis can score—he averaged 15.1 points per game last season—and has a wealth of playoff experience from his days with the Celtics. If he's willing to come off the bench, he could provide the kind of second-unit scoring up front that can turn a pretender into a legitimate playoff threat.

So which playoff-bound teams would suit Big Baby best?
