    This is a very sound move.

    Baron is lazy, out of shape, and nonchalant when he isn't happy or motivated.

    However, when The Baron is in a situation he finds challenging, interesting, and fruitful he always has been -- and still is -- an able, above average to good point guard.

    If he wants to play for us....with the talent we have, and MDA coaching, this could prove to be the best pickup of free agency (not that Davis is the best player, obviously).

    If Davis goes down, we still will have our pick of one of our current combo guards to slot in alongside Bibby, while still leaving a combo guard (either Douglas or Shumpert, likely) to slot alongside Fields for our 2.

    Davis-Bibby
    Douglas-Shumpert
    Melo-Fields
    Amare-Jeffries
    Chandler-Jordan

    Ideally, Fields coming on as our 6th man, who we can use in both the 2 and 3. If Douglas/Shumpert aren't showing us ****, we can always slot Landry back in as a starting 2.

    what about Walker and Shawnee Williams,,,,

    I can't really disagree with ya; if I ran a team, I would call that **** out if a player tried to punk the franchise and fans like that.

    Pro-Baron people often put it like this: he plays down, or up...to his competition/teammates/etc. So if he's on a legit team, with hardcore fans, pumped up arenas, etc, he will bring it.

    He's in the third tier backup mix right now for the 2 and 3 spot, no?

    Williams, ya, I forgot to add him to the depth chart, lol. I guess his value goes up some if Jordan sucks, and we play Jeffries more at the 5, and Williams then gets more play backing up Amare at the 4?

    While Baron Davis has left Cleveland to have his back examined, a source says it is likely that he is amnestied by the Cavaliers and that he ends up signing with the Knicks.


    But Davis may not be available to play for a while due to his bad back.

    I understand picking up a veteran like him but why would you risk a roster spot knowing he has back issues?
    i like the idea of davis but if he has health issues then we dont need him taking away minutes from TD, Bibby and Shumpert

    I have a feeling that this might not be 100% true.. In order for him to sign with the Knicks even if he is amnestied teams under the cap can claim him off waivers.. If no one does THEN he can sign where he wants.. I don't think that this is a fake injury so that the cavs won't want him anymore, I think they were going to waive him regardless, but I think this might be so that no one under the cap will jump on the chance to claim him off waivers

    Oh let's not bring his back issues or player development into this. Let's get our championship goals rolling. The young guys will get their day, and maybe soon.

    At worst Baron is a mentor for TD and Shumpert - as much as it's true that Baron isn't much of a superstar, he's still got much better PG skills than those two.

    Look at how great Darren Collison was playing when he had Chris Paul mentoring him from the bench.

    And the Cavs actually won some big games with him.

    Baron can still ball. I was at the Clips/Knicks game last year, and he was pretty impressive. I me we have swiss cheese D, but he could get to the rim when he wanted.

    I think, like others have said, he needs to be motivated. I'd rather have him than Bibby, any day.

    Plus, with Ronny gone, we need another epic beard on the team.

    The Knicks' interest in Cavaliers point guard Baron Davis could be tempered by a revelation that his recent back injury could be more serious than previously thought.
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Davis, who hurt his back at the beginning of training camp, is seeking a second opinion on the injury. The Cavaliers belief after Davis' physical is the back issue could keep him out weeks.

    Davis wants to play in New York if he becomes an amnesty free agent but the Cavs are waiting before making the decision. The amnesty process is complicated and teams under the salary cap put in bids for Davis' services, meaning he can't initially pick his own destination.
    The Knicks are over the salary cap and must wait to see if Davis is claimed

    Damn... It looks like his back injury is worse than we thought.
