NBA free agency 2014: Several teams express interest in Glen Davis after Magic buyout, according to report

Glen Davis - Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The veteran big man will have no trouble finding a new team for the stretch run once the Magic officially complete their buyout with him.

Upon the completion of his Orlando Magic buyout, which transaction could become official Friday, Glen Davis will have several suitors ready to sign him for the playoff run, report Marc J. Spears and Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The pair of NBA scribes characterizes the Los Angeles Clippers as having "significant interest" in signing the free-agent-to-be, a development which makes sense in light of Davis' shared history with L.A. coach Doc Rivers, who coached Davis with the Boston Celtics for the first four seasons of the LSU product's professional career. Rivers and Davis won a title together with the Celtics in Davis' rookie season, and Rivers said in November that he still has a "good" relationship with his former player.

L.A. tried to trade for Davis before Thursday's NBA trade deadline, Yahoo! says, but those talks did not gain traction.

Spears and Wojnarowski report the Brooklyn Nets, Golden State Warriors, Miami Heat, and San Antonio Spurs also have interest in signing Davis once he clears waivers.

Wojnarowski first reported that Orlando had reached a buyout agreement with Davis. No one has yet disclosed terms of the buyout. Davis' contract calls for him to earn $6.6 million in the 2014/15 season, the last of his deal, according to ShamSports' salary database.

Davis, 28, averaged 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds for Orlando in the 2013/14 season. In 45 appearances, the seventh-year big man recorded five double-doubles.
