The Orlando Magic know firsthand what Glen Davis can do -- Big Baby's buzzer-beating 21-footer beat them in Game Four of the Eastern Conference semfinals, after all -- but that apparently doesn't mean that the Magic are eager to offer Davis a contract. The Boston Herald reports that Orlando general manager Otis Smith last night became the second NBA executive in two days to deny or downplay interest in signing Davis.
"I think we like who we like, and you can't make us like who we don't like," Smith said when asked about Davis, according to the Herald's Mark Murphy. "We just have a tendency to like who we like, like every franchise does." He said Davis is "not today" one of the franchise's priorities.
On Sunday, Dallas owner Mark Cuban posted the following message on Twitter: "contrary to reports, the Mavs are not pursuing Glenn Davis. Great player, but we like our guys."
Davis is a restricted free agent, meaning Boston can match any offer that the 23-year-old power forward receives from another club.
