It is official the Los Angeles Clippers have re-signed big man Glen Davis. The veteran forward came over to the team during this past February after the Orlando Magic bought out his contract.
His contract will consist of a minimum deal of $1.2 million. This allows the Clippers to save a lot of money for the future and at the same time acquire a player like Davis that can do all of the dirty work.
