Via Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports:

The Orlando Magic have reached an agreement on a contract buyout with forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis, sources told Yahoo Sports. […]

Magic officials want to start giving more playing time to their young corps of forwards, including Andrew Nicholson, and were concerned with how Davis would handle a diminished role.

Davis, 28, is being paid $6.4 million this season and $6.6 million next season. The 6-foot-9, 289-pounder averaged 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds this season for Orlando.

Davis would have to clear waivers following a buyout to become an unrestricted free agent.
