Glen "Big Baby" Davis pulled out of the United States Olympic Basketball Mini-Camp. So, "Big Baby" will not have a chance to play for Coach Krzyzewski and the USA Olympic team. Does this have any implications to the NBA or the Celtics? It would not seem so, but it could work for and against him.
For Davis: Glen is a free agent. Danny Ainge and the Celtics would love to bring back Glen for at least another year. In the playoffs, he replaced KG and filled in for him well by putting up 15.8 points a game along with 5.6 rebounds. It is almost a guarantee that Ainge was going to send scouts to see "Big Baby" after not playing since May 17. Now without any recent information on how his fitness is, Ainge will have to go on only his breakout playoff performance.
Against Davis: Glen is a free agent. Teams who were interested by his breakout playoff performance wished to see more of Glen. Team scouts were definitely going to visit him at the USA Olympic Mini-Camp. Now teams that wanted to see him can not, they will be less willing to sign him espcially in the economic recession and with the famed 2010 free agency period on the loom.
