    Default Rumors that Knicks Will go After Baron Davis

    Source tells TKB that it “sounds like” Baron Davis will be amnestied and the Knicks are “in the mix” for him as a PG option.
    I would love this move and it would allow us to keep STAT while adding a legit PG and Tyson Chandler.

    Davis
    Fields
    Melo
    STAT
    Tyson Chandler

    That is a championship caliber starting 5!

    Yes Davis is 32 and yes he is injury prone but if we can get him for cheap he should fit nicely coming to a big stage with bigger egos to keep him in check and a sense he has something to prove.

    Im not really a big Baron Davis fan, its not really his age that bothers me. Its more his heart and motivation. The question is, did we see him playing out of shape and looking somewhat lethargic in recent years because he hasn't been on a playoff team since the Warriors, when he gave us memorable performances as GS upsetted the #1 seeded Mavericks. Would playing on a tough playoff team motivate Baron Davis to get into great shape, and is he the right type of point guard for this team? How hard has he worked this summer?

    It would probally be similar as to when the Celtics signed Marbrury after his buyout. He would have to be open to a Vet min. deal that would be the only way possible.

    i'm assuming he would only be open to the vet minimum if his previous contract was fully paid, right?

    That's what happens when you don't read everything first.

    I just posted this very idea on the T. Chandler thread.

    I believe amnesty contracts are fully paid but teams can spread the payments over the remaining term of the contract if they desire instead of a lump sum like a buyout.

    Slow your roll...

    My thread was created almost 10 minutes before your post in the other thread.

    Remember that the Cavs have to pay him his contract money which is almost $28M over the next two years. We can offer him everything what's left on our salary which will be around additional $4M if we traded Turiaf for a minimum contract, a pick and cash consideration. Getting paid $36M and playing for a team with Stoudemire, Anthony and Chandler on its roster is a win-win situation.
