The Boston Celtics run in this years playoffs was helped greatly by the play of Glen Davis. However, Big Baby has not received the love he thought he would get from Boston regarding a new contract. There is still hope that the Celtics will offer him a deal that would allow him to remain there, his agent and camp will also field other teams offers as well. One team that may begin to draw interest in Davis is the Oklahoma City Thunder. Davis would compliment the current young core of players already in OKC, and they would be able to offer him a contract in the price range he is expecting.

In other news, the Pistons have brought back a staple of their glory years from earlier in the decade. Veteran center Ben Wallace has re-signed with the team on a one year, $1.3 million dollar deal. Wallace, who played with Detroit for six seasons his first stint, won the defensive player of the year award, appeared in 2 NBA Finals, and won 1 NBA title during that initial run.

The banned substance found in Orlando Magic forward Rashard Lewis’ system was DHEA, which can be found in most supplement stores. The substance violates the NBA’s anti-drug policy, and will cost Lewis 10 games, or $1.7 million dollars of his salary next season.

The Clippers may now be taking the lead in the Ramon Sessions discussions, as the Knicks are afraid of the impending decrease in the salary cap next summer and beyond. There are talks between the Bucks and Clippers regarding a sign-and-trade for the restricted free agent, in which the Bucks would at least receive some compensation for the departing guard.
