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.
