The way I remember it is the Tigers wanted another big bat 2015, but didn't have the money to sign Upton.  Therefore, they considered Davis since his value was dropping and no one was signing him (even though he had little experience in LF where the Tigers had an opening).  Then Ilitch intervened and said, "you're silly, get a real outfielder, here's some extra money."

According to this article Ilitch was "absolutely ready"  to sign Davis but Avila talked him out of it.

Ok, I had it backwards.  Ilitch wanted to break the bank on Davis and Avila stopped him.
