Glen Davis signs to play in Master P’s co-ed basketball league
It has been two seasons since Glen Davis last played in the NBA as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers.
However, it appears he has taken the first step toward restarting his professional basketball career as TMZ is reporting that the 31-year-old is set to join former rapper Master P’s co-ed basketball league.
TMZ Sports has learned ex-NBA star Glen “Big Baby” Davis has signed on to play in the Global Mixed Gender Basketball league … along with 2 other former NBA players.
Davis is set to play in the league alongside two other former NBA players and LSU alums in Tyrus Thomas and Stromile Swift. The first exhibition game is set to take place on Sept. 23 in Las Vegas. Other notable names that have joined the fray are Metta World Peace, UNLV women basketball players Dakota and Dylan Gonzalez, and Hall of Famer Lisa Leslie, who has agreed to work as a coach.
This may be more of a trial run for Davis, but it at least gets him back in the mix of playing basketball. It could provide him the opportunity to show to teams that he still has plenty left in the tank to be a reliable rotation player for an NBA franchise.
In eight NBA seasons, Davis holds career averages of 8.0 points on 44.7 percent shooting from the field with 4.4 rebounds in 21.1 minutes per game playing for the Clippers, Orlando Magic, and Boston Celtics.
