Glen Davis eyeing NBA comeback, willing to play in G League to do so
Big Baby is looking to make a big bounceback.
Glen Davis told Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated on Monday that he is eyeing a return to the NBA and is willing to play in the G League to make it happen.
“I want to play. That’s my next step,” said Davis. “Whatever I have to do to show I can play the game at a high level still and help a team win, I will do. I know it’s going to be a process because I haven’t played in two years. But I feel like I’m at the prime in my game and I still have a lot to offer.
“I am considering the G League,” he continued. “It’s a great opportunity to show all 30 teams that I can play without getting hurt. They can see what I can still do. This is the best opportunity to make my steps back to the NBA.”
Davis, still just 31 years old, last played in the 2014-15 season, averaging 4.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 12.2 minutes a game for the LA Clippers. He’s kept somewhat in the news since then however with feuds and warm takes alike.
The LSU product is more of a big body down low than anything, and sort of one-dimensional skillset seems to have become all but obsolete. Nevertheless, if Davis feels he still has something to offer at the NBA level and is even willing to play in a developmental league to prove it, more power to him.
