It appears I wasn’t the only one frustrated when Glen Davis repeatedly missed outside jump shots, stopped crashing the offensive glass and generally appeared lost during the latter stages of last season. According to Jackie MacMullan, Davis drove the Celtics crazy. (WEEI)

On Glen Davis’s struggles last season and if the Celtics will re-sign him: “You have wonder what was going on inside his head. He had a weight clause in his contract and he had to keep a certain weight. You take a picture of Big Baby from November to April and it’s pretty startling. … So what that tells me is, he had this weight clause and he kept missing it and he kept paying them out, fine after fine after fine. He drove them crazy over there, there’s no question about it.

“Shaq had some insight to that, they considered him somewhat of a selfish player trying to get his numbers in his free agent year. Clearly he did not live up the conditioning rules and regulations that they set for him. I think there’s a high level of frustration over there about Big Baby about what he did, or more appropriately, what he didn’t do for them, especially in the postseason. Now having said all of that, if you get him for dirt cheap, do you take him back? I don’t know how perturbed Doc Rivers is about him because I haven’t really asked him about Big Baby for a while. My gut is that he won’t be back.”

Re-signing Davis is a risk. He eats too much. He fights with Doc Rivers. He admittedly mentally collapsed at the end of last year. Committing long-term money to Davis could end badly. But he might be Boston’s best chance to add a reasonably-priced, semi-reliable big man. Sigh.
