Glen Davis' new contract with the Orlando Magic is worth $26 million over four seasons, according to Yahoo! Marc Spears. The Magic acquired Davis in a sign-and-trade deal with the Boston Celtics by shipping out power forward Brandon Bass, who was due $8 million over the next two seasons.
As the Magic is in a bit of roster turmoil given Dwight Howard's potential 2012 free agency and the swirling trade rumors, it's unclear whether Davis will be the team's starter at power forward or a reserve, which is the role he filled in Boston for four seasons playing behind Kevin Garnett.
The deal adds about $2 million to Orlando's cap figure, which was already high. But the Magic are also waiving Gilbert Arenas via the amnesty clause, which could give the team some room to operate under the luxury tax threshold.
