It did not take long for the Magic to move on from Glen Davis' sudden and somewhat unexpected departure. The NBA schedule would not allow it. The games always come fast and furious.
There was not much time to think about the dearly departed as the team moved quickly after the trade deadline to buyout Glen Davis' contract.
"Any role that we would have asked him to fill, he would have gladly done it," Magic general manager Rob Hennigan said Friday about Glen Davis. "This was about trying to do right by him and helping him move forward in the proper way."
Glen Davis took to Twitter on Friday after the buyout was announced and thanked Magic fans:
I want to first thank the Orlando Magic for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this Organization over the last 3 years.— Glen Davis (@iambigbaby11) February 21, 2014
Secondly, I want to thank the Magic fans and the Orlando community for welcoming me and my family into your family and for your support.— Glen Davis (@iambigbaby11) February 21, 2014
Although I will no longer be a Magic Player, I will continue to make Orlando my home. It’s great place to live and to raise my family.— Glen Davis (@iambigbaby11) February 21, 2014
Thanks again for all of your support. I am eternally grateful. All my best!!!!— Glen Davis (@iambigbaby11) February 21, 2014
This seemed purely to be a business decision for the Magic. Davis did not fit their future plans and they could not get anything of value in return for him. Rob Hennigan said he would not make a deal just to make a deal. Everything is about "the plan" and "the process."no comments
