Glen Davis considering playing in G League to pursue NBA comeback
It has been nearly two years since veteran big man Glen Davis last played in an NBA with the L.A. Clippers.
However, Davis has recently upped his efforts to rebooting his NBA career with his decision to participate in a co-ed league in Las Vegas ran by former Rapper Master P. In line with that thought process, the 31-year-old recently told Marc J. Spears of the Undefeated that he may pursue a stint in the G League to work his way back into the NBA.
“I want to play. That’s my next step,” the 31-year-old Davis said. “Whatever I have to do to show I can play the game at a high level still and help a team win, I will do. I know it’s going to be a process because I haven’t played in two years. But I feel like I’m at the prime in my game and I still have a lot to offer.
“I am considering the G League. It’s a great opportunity to show all 30 teams that I can play without getting hurt. They can see what I can still do. This is the best opportunity to make my steps back to the NBA.”
Although Davis has been away from the league for an extended period of time, he certainly has the talent to make an NBA roster. He has proven over the course of his career that he can be a reliable big man off the bench in a set role.
Davis is now fully healed from the ankle injury that required offseason surgery to repair some torn ligaments that derailed him during the latter portion of his tenure with the Clippers. What may also work in his favor is that he could also be had on an inexpensive short-term contract.
