Big Baby is headed for timeout after throwing a tantrum.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that reserve forward Glen Davis has been suspended by the team for two games after an "outburst" at the team's shootaround on Friday.
The Orlando Magic have suspended power forward Glen Davis for tonight’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Saturday’s game against the Indiana Pacers because of what team officials are labeling “conduct detrimental to the team.”

Davis had an outburst during the team’s shootaround this morning at Amway Center as the team went through some of the Cavaliers’ plays on the team’s practice court. Davis and coach Stan Van Gundy ultimately got into an argument. Van Gundy would not discuss many of the details of what happened, but Van Gundy and a witness said the disagreement never turned physical.
Yahoo Sports tweeted further news and a statement from John Hamilton, Davis' agent:
Glen Davis to meet with Stan Van Gundy & GM Otis Smith on Monday after serving 2-game suspension, source says. GD & SVG got in heated argument at morning shootaround. 

"I'm confident Monday they will move forward. Glen's frustrated, disappointed & wants the team to be successful,"agent John Hamilton.
The Magic will play host to the Cavs on Friday, then travel to Indiana to face the Pacers on Saturday. Assuming the suspension is not extended, Davis should return to the lineup Monday night, when the Magic host the Clippers.

There has been no shortage of antics from Davis during a strange season for the Magic, which has been marred by All-Star center Dwight Howard's trade demand. In January, Davis was whistled for a technical foul for taking off his shorts during a game while protesting a foul call. That came less than two weeks after Howard pretended to defibrillate Davis as he lay on the baseline.

Davis, 26, was acquired in a preseason trade from the Boston Celtics. In the 22 games he's played this season, he is averaging 7.3 points and five rebounds in 22.3 minutes per game. The Magic have lost four of their last five games and are 13-9 on the season, sitting in third place in the Southeast Division standings.

     Maaaaaan..... Talk about fueling the fire!!! As if this team doesnt have enough going on, now Their backups are making waves.  I would be nervous if I'm an Orlando fan sitting courtside.  Only a matter of time before players are running into the stands and throwin Bows!! jk.

   I am curious as what could have possibly sparked Big Baby to fly off the handle in a simple shootaround.  This situation is just adding to the snowball.  At this point, I wouldnt be surprised if Van Gundy gets his 2 weeks notice.  This team is having severe chemistry issues.  Too bad, cuz they actually have the personel to compete.

What an absolute jack ass he is. One of Danny Ainge's best 'small' deals. Glad to nothave him on the celtics anymore. Bass can hit a jumper, he tries on every play and can finish around the rim.. Bye bye baby

Celtics 1; Magic 0

How in the world did the Magic ever get talked into taking this waste of space for a decent prospect? That move alone should put the GM's job at risk- even if Howard pushed for the deal.

I have always been impressed with Bass. He is no superstar but he works hard and makes the best of his talent. A good pickup by the Celts.

Davis? Not so much.

So what team is Dwight Howard trying to get interested in trading for him this week?

This has to be a crazy place to be playing in the first place. Throw in a bunch of "personalities" and you really have a mess in Orlando.

The Knicks have a bunch of parts that don't work too well together. Orlando has a bunch of parts that don't want to work too well together. They should talk.

How's that Brandon Bass / Big Baby trade working out for you, Dwight "I wanna be GM" Howard? Freaking idiot!! Then again this is the guy that threw a fit when the Magic looked into trading Jameer Nelson after the Finals loss to the Lakers but now wants to leave and join a team with a better PG.

I'll keep saying it..If the Magic can get half of what the Nuggets got for Carmelo Anthony, they should do the deal immediately.

Magic suspend Glen Davis for 2 games

i am glad the ame did not get physical. one one hand we have a young guy that looks like he should be a tight end. oon the other hand coaches are usually some little old guy. i am going to say hat if we knew what is is about, we will find outthat it is something trivial. something childish. also the magic have been losing. they need to get this howard thing settled. a bad trend in the nba. just because a player's contract is coming up in a yer, do we have tomtalk about it for the whole year? the players likethat because ofthe attention they get.
