ORLANDO, FL - MAY 14:  Glen Davis #11 of the Boston Celtics looks to pass against the Orlando Magic in Game Six of the Eastern Conference Semifinals during the 2009 NBA Playoffs at Amway Arena on May 14, 2009 in Orlando, Florida.

The 2009-10 NBA season is coming up and things just keep getting better and better for the Boston Celtics.

According to Celtics' insiders, Baby is on his way to signing a two-year deal with the Celtics. 

It's not so much about the skill, but it's more of the mindset and spirit that Glen "Baby" Davis brings to the Celtics. Think of him as a watered down Kevin Garnett.

It's watching Baby grow and breakthrough; he is one of the main reasons that the Celtics lasted so long against the Orlando Magic, averaging 15 points a game and hitting a game winner.

Obviously, Baby will also provide some much needed help for Rasheed Wallace and Garnett. Boston won't commit the same mistake twice and lose KG a second time.

On a different note, the Celtics face off with the Cleveland Cavaliers first thing this coming season. The mistake of letting Leon Powe go may hurt Boston, but then again, it might not. Time will only tell. An injured player is a wild card, but Powe definitely will make a difference if he bounces back from his injury. 

I still do not like Danny Ainge's decision of throwing Powe away though.
