Celtics may send Big Baby out

Feb 9, 2010, 6:52 PM EDT

NBA_Glen_Davis.jpgFinding a good deal for Ray Allen is going to be hard — nobody wants to give equal value for a fading, aging star — but the Celtics may have some minor deals up their sleeves.

According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard, the Celtics and Bobcats have been talking about trading forward Glen  “Big Baby” Davis for point guard DJ Augustin. The Bobcats need some size inside, and Davis certainly brings that. Augustin has struggled this year, shooting the ball just 37%, which has landed him in Larry Brown’s dog house. Not that it’s very hard for a guard to wind up there, someone could put together a sad commercial with Sarah McLachlan music about how Brown treats guards.

Of course, no trade is simple — Davis just signed a new deal, and as such is a “Base Year Compensation” player in the complex world of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. What it means in simple terms is Boston is going to have to throw another person to make the deal work, and they don’t have a lot of other cheap assets.

But, the sides are talking. Just like this entire trade deadline, it may be little deals like this rather than the big deals like Allen that get done.

    What in the world does DJ Augustin do for the Celtics?

    half a mil less salary next year and a team option to let him go the following year – otherwise, absolutely nothin’ but a warm body on the bench

    oops! not half a mil – 750K. maybe Boston wants to make some cap room

    Sorry Boston, you can’t have our D.J.!

    Glen’s nickname is no longer Big Baby, it’s “The Big Dildo” because he gets it in!!!!!

    No Tommy Gunn … he should rename to “E-D” As in E— Dysfunction as he needs help getting it up during the games… Maybe he can be a spokesperson with Bob Dole..

    My beloved Celtics are struggling, not the team from years ago, getting rid of Davis won’t help them on a 2nd half run. The ageing team should wait until the off-season.

    Celtics you should have resigned Leon Powe, and let big baby go to the highest bidder!! Powe is almost ready to get back into action for Cleveland and make them an even stronger team! Great job Celtics
