The Orlando Magic acquired Glen Davis from the Boston Celtics in a sign-and-trade deal involving Brandon Bass on Friday, and two reports now know the value and conditions of Davis' new deal. According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, Davis' contract with Orlando is worth $26 million over four seasons. Additionally, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports the contract includes neither a player option nor a team option.

Davis' deal is worth $2.5 million more annually than Bass' deal, which he signed for Orlando in 2009. Whether Davis represents that significant an upgrade over Bass has yet to be seen; I tend to believe the trade between Boston and Orlando benefits all parties involved, but Kelly Dwyer of Ball Don't Lie offers a dissenting view. "Davis is essentially a poor man's version of Bass," he writes, later adding, "Rarely do minor deals come this one-sided."

What do you think? Is $6.5 million annually a fair salary for Davis?
