A former professional basketball player pleaded not guilty Thursday to a felony assault charge stemming from an alleged attack on a man outside a West Hollywood club about two months ago.

Ronald Glen Davis, 32, of Tarzana, is charged with one count of assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

The charge includes an allegation that he caused great bodily injury.

Davis allegedly threw the man against a wall during an April 8 altercation outside a club in the 600 block of Robertson Boulevard, according to prosecutors.

Davis was arrested May 18 by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies and released a few hours later on bond, according to jail records.

A date is scheduled to be set July 10 for a hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to allow the case against him to proceed to trial.

If convicted as charged, he could face up to seven years in state prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Davis — whose nickname is “Big Baby — played for the Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Clippers.
