New Jersey Has Chance to Net Big Baby

by

The New Jersey Nets may get their man, Celtics restricted free agent forward Glen Davis, due to the recent complications involved in the Celtics' sign-and-trade acquisition of Marquis Daniels.

On Monday, word broke that the C's and Pacers hit a snag with the sign-and-trade deal. Because of this complication, the two teams will likely need a third team to step in and with the Nets' high interest in Davis, a deal could be made soon.

According to the New York Post:

The Nets have made their inquiries and repeatedly have said they need to create a roster space before making a move. A report that surfaced yesterday about a sign-and-trade involving Davis and Nets forward Yi Jianlian was shot down by both sides about 30 seconds after it sought traction. Maybe an inventive deal could be devised involving three teams. The Nets have a couple of trade exceptions from the Vince Carter deal that could come into play. The Celtics likely want a big man in return, the Pacers want a wing.

Davis averaged 15.8 points and 6.0 rebounds during the playoffs last season.
