Nets express interest in Davis

The New Jersey Nets are among the teams who have expressed interest in Boston Celtics restricted free-agent forward Glen Davis(notes), a league source said Monday.

The Nets still have their $5.8 million mid-level exception to spend as they search through their options from a pool of free-agent power forwards that also includes Lamar Odom(notes) and Drew Gooden(notes). The Nets also are interested in Carlos Boozer(notes), whom the Utah Jazz are trying to trade.

The Celtics have said they would match any reasonable offer for Davis. The Detroit Pistons, New Orleans Hornets and Portland Trail Blazers, league sources said, tried to work a sign-and-trade deal for Davis only to be rebuffed by the Celtics. Boston did offer Davis and guards J.R. Giddens(notes) and Gabe Pruitt(notes) to the Pistons for forward Jason Maxiell(notes) and a first-round pick, but was quickly turned down.

The Cleveland Cavaliers signed forward Jamario Moon(notes) to a two-year, $6 million offer sheet, a league source said. The Miami Heat have seven days from Monday to match if they choose.
