Brandon Bass To The Celtics Trade Done, According To Report; Glen Davis Heading To Magic

The Boston Celtics have completed a trade to acquire Brandon Bass from the Orlando Magic in exchange for Glen Davis, who is an unrestricted free agent, reports Comcast SportsNet New England. That means that the deal will be a sign-and-trade, with Davis' starting salary being anywhere from $2-6 million under loosened trade rules. Bass is due $4 million this season.

Bass is a power forward who shoots the outside jumper well. Bass averaged a career-high 11 points and 5.6 rebounds per game last season, playing 26 minutes per game in a mostly starting role. He has shot over 40 percent on long two-pointers in each of the past four seasons.

In Boston, barring other trades, he'll back up Kevin Garnett at power forward. The Celtics also have decisions to make on restricted free agent Jeff Green (a combo forward) and guard Delonte West. Boston has been involved in Chris Paul trade rumors, as well, with Rajon Rondo presenting the bait.
