    Default Davis Likely To Be Amnestied, End Up With Knicks

    Dec 12, 2011 1:35 PM EST


    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?

    please let this story be a smoke screen so Gilbert can amnesty him with a straight face.


    Also I wonder is maybe the hold up Gilbert waiting to see if Miami takes Billups before he releases B.Davis just to make sure there is no room for him on the Heat....


    I know a lot of what ifs and conspiracy stuff but hey what else is there to talk about until the season starts

    LOL there's nothing wrong with Baron's back. He just don't want to be there!

    As soon as he's signed somewhere else he'll be ready.

    I don't want Davis. He has a scorer's mentality.

    i dont like his field goal percentage but he's a career 7 assist a night guy, even during his worst years physically (with crappy teams), he still puts up 6, 7, 8 dimes?

    He is pretty good with the P'N'R and his alleyoops made Griffin and D.Jordan look like trampeze artist last year. Thats basically the type of PG Tyson Chandler offensively thrives off of.


    Anyhow TD is still here to be the defensive PG and with Baron there the odds of PG being a glaring weakspot on the roster is decreased significantly.

    About the amnesty clause:
    Do someone know the details of the bidding process ?
    What is the timing for teams under the cap to make an offer ?

    Baron would be awesome to have, would make you wonder why we signed Bibby though. Especially considering his money is better off in Shawne Williams hands.

    this isnt the days of marbury and francis sharing back court duties

    we have real players

    real winners

    and i like the idea of signing veterans with a point to prove like bibby and davis because they will only look better and younger playing along side amare and melo

    stop thinking of bibby as mike bibby the pg

    and view him as a spot up shooter who can fill a role like steve kerr or eddie house for us

    think of a baron davis as a jason terry for us, a good ball handler who can come in and score for us, if he is off we sit him and put douglas or bibby back int he game,

    what i love about what we are doing is we are giving ourself options

    we can have douglas and davis

    or davis and bibby

    or bibby and fields

    shumpert and fields

    or fields and davis in the game together at any moment to moatch up

    small pg put davis and let him post up

    big pg put shumpert and fields in the line up together for a big back court

    small line up put douglas and bibby in together

    what we are doing is giving ourselves the opportunity to match up to any team on any given night

    we can slow the ball down and play half court isolation

    we can go small ball spread the floor and push it down the court

    we can play zone and have chandler roam the paint on help defense

    we can go man to man and not worry about small or big match ups.



    im loving everything we are doing this offseason

    I think it would be a nice addition. As long as its cheap and short term, I got no problem with Baron Davis.

    He's at the point of his career where he has already made a lot of money, is getting older, and probably really wants a ring. I have faith that he would sacrifice some of his chucker mentality for the good of the team.

    The Baron is clearly the best low-risk, high-reward guard we can sign.

    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.
