Reports have it that the Clippers have signed Glen Davis to shore its frontcourt with the Playoffs looming



The Los Angeles Angeles Clippers is seriously wanting to contend in the West and want to take a revenge on last season's early exit in the Playoffs.

Last Playoffs, they were upset by the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round which in turn the Grizzlies madce it to the West Finals.

This season with the Playoffs looming, the Clippers wanted to have a deep line-up which could challenge the bests in the West.



Los Angeles Clippers is reportedly have added frontcourt depth Sunday by signing bruising big man Glen Davis. They addressed an area of need with a capable scorer, and the best talent available via the free-agent market.

News broke late Sunday morning via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, that Davis will be signing with the Clippers following a buyout deal with the Orlando Magic.


Big Baby's role

As the 28-year-old moves on to his third NBA team, he'll surely help his newest club in a department where they've lacked substance all season long. Behind Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, the Clippers haven't been able to find a sufficient role player to productively supplement the high-flying pair's burn.

Ryan Hollins and now-Philadelphia 76er Byron Mullens were initially slotted in as prime bigs for Doc Rivers to turn to off the bench, but it didn't take long for both to prove ineffective. As a result, Griffin and Jordan lead the Clips in minutes played.

Even though the pair can handle the heavy workload—Jordan is still just 25 and Griffin doesn't hit the quarter-century mark until next month—it's always beneficial to monitor the minutes of your top weapons as the postseason draws near. Doing so without sacrificing much production is obviously the ideal method.

By adding Davis, Los Angeles seems to have added a piece to make this much more feasible than before. And in a subdued role under head coach Doc Rivers, Big Baby has the potential to deepen LA's talent and make for a formidable playoff opponent come April and May.

Davis will slide in behind behind Griffin and Jordan on the depth chart, at a spot where no Clipper has been able to sustain decent enough play to establish a role.

As Hollins, Mullens, former Clipper Antawn Jamison and Hedo Turkoglu have all failed to provide adequate minutes behind the Lob City duo, Rivers has had no choice but to lean heavily upon Griffin and Jordan.


Now, if they will sign Davis, he will be a key player off the bench in which Hollins failed after trading away Jamison.

Will look on what the Big Baby's impact on the Clippers team will be as the Playoffs is fast approaching.
