Glen Davis, the now former Orlando Magic, has decided to join forces with his former coach Doc Rivers in Los Angeles.

Davis, who was bought out from his contract by the Magic earlier this week, will clear waivers this afternoon and has told the Clippers brass that he will sign with the Clippers.

The Clippers currently have 12 men on the active roster, which is one below the league minimum. With Byron Mullens and Antawn Jamison being traded at the deadline the Clippers needed to add at least one member to the active roster. When Davis was bought out the Clippers immediately pounced on the opportunity to add a third big man who has played under Rivers before. The Clippers also worked out and considered signing Jason Collins; however, Davis was the better options and Collins signed with the Brooklyn Nets earlier today.

The Clippers have been in need of the third big man to back up Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. Davis, who won a championship with Rivers as a member of the Boston Celtics in 2008, is a perfect fit and will blend in seemlessly with the team. The question is whether or not Davis puts the Clippers over the top in the West. While this move certainly improves the Clippers, I’m not sure that it puts them ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder or the San Antonio Spurs.
