Baron Davis To Join NBA D-League

Veteran point guard Baron Davis has signed with the NBA D-League, Chris Reichert of Upside & Motor reports (Twitter link). Davis will be subject to the D-League’s waiver process to determine which team he’ll play for. The point guard is likely headed to the D-League in order to showcase himself to NBA scouts for a potential 10-day deal.

The 36-year-old last played in the NBA during the 2011/12 campaign when he made 29 appearances for the Knicks, averaging 6.1 points, 1.9 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 20.5 minutes per night. Davis has also played for the Hornets, Pelicans, Warriors, Clippers and Cavaliers over the course of his career, and he owns career averages of 16.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 7.2 assists to accompany a slash line of .409/.320/.711.

Davis was reportedly preparing himself for a return to the NBA back in July, telling Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report that he felt like he could play 15-20 minutes per game this season. The veteran also noted at the time that he felt that the Clippers and the Warriors would be the best fits for him based on their systems.

This smells like another case of a guy squandering most or all of his money. Why else would he humble himself this much to take what has to be an extreme long shot to get back into the NBA.

Hilarious. Two of the best teams in the NBA just “happen” to fit his “game.” Sounds like he’s broke and trying to latch on to get an easy ring.

Reporter: Where in the NBA would you like to go?

BD: Well personally I think the Golden State Warriors need my presence to truly compete for a championship

How is this a case of him not having money? Baron was killing in the Drew League, is obviously in good shape and also formerly played for the Warriors and Clippers. No quality veteran player is going to go play somewhere like Philly because in this stage in their days left in their career are numbered. Every player wants a ring and not to mention it’s not like he’s going to get an outrageous contract.

Philly has more money for a veteran and they actually need a veteran. GS and LAC need not his presence.

Also if we’re being realistic we all know the Clippers are in no way a “championship contender”.

He will not help the clippers at all. Anybody who makes play offs is contender because if Curry and Duncan get injured its any bodies game.
