And-Ones: Davis, D-League, CBA

Baron Davis has cleared D-League waivers after going unclaimed by the league’s 19 teams, Marc Stein of reports (on Twitter). In other words, no team thought he was worth a waiver claim. Davis now goes into the league’s available players pool, Stein adds. With an interesting point, Adam Johnson of D-League Digest tweets that some team would have likely taken a shot on Davis if this situation happened a few years ago, if only for marketing purposes, because the D-League had independent teams then.

Here’s more from around the basketball world:

  • Either side may opt out of the current collective bargaining agreement after the 2016/17 season, but commissioner Adam Silver is encouraged by already having direct conversations with the Players Association and is optimistic that a lockout will be avoided, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports tweets.
  • Jae Crowder is putting up career-best numbers across the board and after re-signing with the Celtics this past summer for five years and $35MM, he is looking like one of the league’s top bargains, Chris Forsberg of writes. Crowder was the prize in the trade that sent Rajon Rondo to the Mavs and is flourishing this season as the Celtics’ starting small forward, Forsberg adds.
  • The Hawks recalled Lamar Patterson and Edy Tavares from the D-League, Atlanta announced in an emailed press release.
  • The Magic will recall Devyn Marble from the D-League, John Denton of reports (on Twitter).

    I still think the Celtics could have reaped a lot more for Rondo than what they got from Dallas, but Crowder has certainly worked out.

    • I thought what they got was a decent return. They got Crowder (who I think was actually the main target of Boston since he showed flashes of good play in Dallas), a first round pick, a second rounder, a big trade exception and Brandan Wright (who they flipped for another pick). Plus I don’t think that many teams were in on Rondo considering his attitude issues and inability to shoot or hit free throws.

    Baron can still handle and pass but his shooting has been and still is atrocious. Saw him play at the Drew and he was completely outshined by relative no names. If “Money Mike”
    Isn’t in the league Baron, I’m sorry but you won’t be either. Still got my li-Ning boom dizzle shirt in the rotation tho!

      I really enjoyed The (pre-Harden) Beard when he was a Warrior. That dunk on AK-47 was amazing. But his career was over more than 5 years ago, and I hope he doesn’t need the money, that would make me sad. If he’s doing it because he actually wants and thinks he can make it back? Good for him. Boom Dizzle!
