The Clippers made their announcement official Monday morning just after they signed Glen “Big Baby” Davis, who will be in uniform tonight when the Clippers face the Pelicans in New Orleans.
Davis, 28, will resume his career down the road from his native Baton Rouge, La., where he played college ball with LSU. He will also be reunited with Clippers coach Doc Rivers, Davis’ coach in Boston for four seasons.
Davis will not only once again be under the tutelage of Rivers but assistants Kevin Eastman, Armond Hill and Tyronn Lue, more connections from the Boston days.
“It really hasn’t hit me yet,” Davis said on the team Web site. “It really hasn’t donned on me. Everything’s happened so fast. Today was my first day of just really eating breakfast with the guys. It’s my first experience of bringing back old memories, especially with Doc and Armond Hill and (Lue) and Kevin Eastman. They’re a great group of guys and I won a championship with them, so we have a bond.”
