The maligned big man has reached a deal to end his relationship with the Orlando Magic.

Update (Friday, 2:35 p.m. ET): Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Magic and Davis have completed the buyout. The Los Angeles Clippers remain in the lead to sign him if he clears waivers on Monday, according to Spears' colleague, Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Orlando Magic and Glen Davis are parting ways, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Big Baby spent two-plus years with the team after being acquired from the Boston Celtics in exchange for Brandon Bass.

With the Feb. 20 trade deadline coming and going, Davis was quickly bought out by the Magic. His current deal stands at $13 million over this season and next. As one of Orlando's starters this year, Davis averaged 12.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.

There is sure to be interest in Davis from several contenders in need of yet another big man for their respective playoff runs. The Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers are all in need of another forward, to name a few.

Once the buyout is finalized, it is likely that many teams in contention -- while over the salary cap -- will attempt to sign Davis for the league minimum.
