    Davis


    NBA front-office sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein that the guard reached a verbal agreement with the Clippers on Tuesday night and will sign a new multiyear contract with Los Angeles after the leaguewide moratorium on signings and trades is lifted July 9.
    Davis was in line to make $17.8 million in the last year of his deal with the Warriors, but after telling the team that he wanted to stay, opted out at the last minute.
    Sources told ESPN.com that Davis, 29, will receive a five-year deal worth an estimated $65 million.

    i dont know about being a contender but they could make the lower end of the playoff standings if Davis plays well, Brand stays fit and Kaman develops more.
