Conflicting Big Baby Updates

With Sheed under wraps, we turn our attention to Grant Hill and Big Baby.

We have conflicting rumors on Big Baby.  Tanguay maintains that there's a lot of interest:

Big Baby update San Antonio and Orlando are talking with Big Baby. The conversations are picking up speed.

However, it seems that Magic GM Otis Smith is denying those reports:

When asked about Glenn "Big Baby" Davis, Smith denied that the Magic had any interest.

Also, it seems the Spurs are not close to a contract offer for Big Baby:

Though the Spurs have contacted Davis since free agency began last week, they have yet to discuss an offer with his camp. In addition, the two sides have not talked since Wallace committed to the Celtics on Sunday.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Davis, a restricted free agent, is not particularly close to signing an offer sheet with any team.

In Grant Hill news, Tanguay reports via Chris Mannix that the Doc Rivers meeting took place and that Hill's wife might have some interest in NYC because she's a singer.

Update: Newsday is reporting that Grant Hill is very serious about his interest in New York:

"I've always been a fan of the Knicks and the city," Hill told reporters during his visit at the Garden Monday. "Obviously, they've gone through a lot the last few years, but I'm a big fan of Donnie Walsh and Mike D'Antoni, so I'm definitely interested. I'm just taking it all in."
