Davis draws more charges than most players in basketball and is a good defender, despite being undersized for a power forward.
Davis also provides good offense for the Celtics. His mid-range jump shot has improved dramatically since his rookie season in 2007-08. His ability to score in the paint is also very good, although he doesn't make it look pretty.
He is from Louisiana and went to school at LSU. The Hornets have their own worries regarding the future of Chris Paul, but it is likely the team will lose David West in free agency this year.
West, a power forward like Davis, would create an opening the Celtics sixth man could slide into.
The Celtics could trade Davis—he is a valuable asset for any team—but they are better served re-signing him.
He is crucial to the team's depth in the frontcourt, which has not been good the past few seasons due to injuries.
The Celtics don't have a lot of scoring depth up front right now, and finding a replacement for Davis could be difficult and expensive.
Davis contributes defensively, offensively with his scoring, and knows the system the Celtics use well because he has been with the team the same amount of time Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen have.
The fans love Glen "Big Baby" Davis. It would be foolish for general manager Danny Ainge to let him go.
