This is pretty big news.

BostonHerald.com - Blogs: Celtics Insider" Blog Archive " Celts in talks to trade Glen Davis to Orlando

According to a league source, the Cs are in discussions with Orlando to send Big Baby, in a sign-and-trade deal, to Orlando for power forward Brandon Bass - a player Magic management had been very high on at one stage.

In addition, the Celtics are pursuing Chris Wilcox, a journeyman big man who played with Detroit last season. The team is also finalizing a trade for Bucks guard Keyon Dooling and a second round draft pick. The Cs will only trade the rights to Albert Morales - a player they have held the rights to for the last five years.

For a quick scouting report on Bass: NBA Rumors: Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic Discuss Glen Davis/Brandon Bass Trade, Says Report - Orlando Pinstriped Post

Bass enjoyed a career-best season with Orlando in 2010/11, his sixth in the NBA, transitioning to a full-time starter for the first time in his professional career following the Magic's trade of Rashard Lewis to the Washington Wizards. Though undersized for a power forward, Bass provides toughness, a surprisingly smooth mid-range jumper, and uncanny offensive rebounding ability. He averaged 11.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 26.1 minutes, and 51.5 percent field-goal shooting--all career-highs--last season.

He's also referred to by some fans as "No Pass Bass."

Update: Trade is 'done deal', according to Sherrod Blakley

BBD to Orlando for Brandon Bass is "a done deal" now. Story should be up shortly.
