Glen “Big Baby” Davis

2014-15 Salary: $1.2 million, Player Option

Before their post season concluded, Glen Davis made the Clippers management aware of his intentions to decline the player option in the second year of his contract and enter free agency. Any guy who will take a mental break from what’s going on at that point of the year can go.

With regards to his effectiveness on the floor for the Clippers, Davis never got into the type of physical shape the Clippers needed and in 28 games played averaged 4.2 points and three rebounds in 13 minutes of action. At the price it’ll cost the Clippers to keep him around, Davis isn’t worth bringing back.

Undersized and under-athletic for his position, should the Clippers convince Davis to opt-in to the player option on his contract they’ll need to add players to free Davis’ talent. It would take Clippers pairing him with a reserve big man that’ll allow him to operate on the perimeter, using his 45 percent career from the field in pick-and-pop situations with Chris Paul and Darren Collison.

Don’t expect to see him back in a Clippers uniform. (Marcus Bass)
