Former All-Star Baron Davis is still set on completing his comeback to the league, as he details in a first-hand account for NBA.com. The 36-year-old explains his motivations and reasons for wanting to get back on the court. Earlier this summer, Davis said he feels like he could play 15-20 minutes per game. He hasn’t played since he suffered a devastating knee injury in the 2012 playoffs.
Here’s more from around the basketball world:
- Expectations will be heavy for Jahlil Okafor this season with the Sixers, especially since he has a good chance to lead all rookies in minutes this season, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe writes. Joel Embiid’s absence will allow the big man to blend with Nerlens Noel for what could be an effective center/power forward combination, Washburn adds.
- Casper Ware, who last played in the league in 2013/14 as a member of the Sixers, signed a $350K deal with Tianjin Steel of China, a source told international reporter David Pick (on Twitter).
