Glen Davis-led group beat a team with DeMar DeRozan, Nick Young, Jordan Clarkson at Drew League
The last time we saw Glen Davis on an NBA basketball court was back in 2015 as part of the Los Angeles Clippers. More recently, he spends his days as part of BIG3 squad Nation Wide Souljas, which recently took part in the tournament’s championship weekend.
When the lights shone the brightest, Davis came to play. He scored 34 big points, leading his team to victory against MHP, which boasted the trio of DeMar DeRozan, Jordan Clarkson, and Nick Young.
The crowd were treated to a vintage Glen Davis who was able to dominate the paint, adding in seven rebounds to his impressive overall stat line. The 6-foot-9 big man was absolutely feeling it, and even hit a couple of mid-range buckets.

For MHP, DeRozan, Clarkson, and Young combined for 60 of the team’s 74 points. Their effort ultimately fell short, and with the 82-74 victory, Nation Wide Souljas booked a trip to the tournament’s championship game against Redemption on Sunday night.
At 32 years of age and with visibly a lot of weight added on, a return to the NBA is highly unlikely for Davis. Drafted 35th overall in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Seattle Supersonics, Davis was immediately shipped off to the Boston Celtics where he would spend the first four years of his career.
He was then traded to the Orlando Magic, where Davis arguably had his best stint in the league. In the 2012-13 season, Davis put up 15.1 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.6 blocks in 31.3 minutes as a starter.
