According to ESPN, after being amnestied by the Cavaliers, point guard Baron Davis has cleared waivers and is now available to sign with any team he chooses.
The 32-year-old Davis averaged Davis averaged 13.1 points and 6.7 assists in 58 games while shooting 42% from the field and 34% from 3-point.
The issue with Davis is his back which is expected to keep him out for 8-10 weeks.
Tommy Dee of the The Knicks Blog went as far as to say he be "shocked" if Davis doesn't sign with the Knicks. I would not say that because I think there is a strong chance he signs with either the Lakers or Heat as well.
Davis's best fit is probably in NY and would be an immediate upgrade over the core of Toney Douglas/Iman Shumpert/Mike Bibby and would also help strengthen the bench by pushing Douglas to the bench.
And while I am a pretty big Shumpert believer he needs more seasoning and while Davis isn't the best point guard to learn from he is a pretty damn good one and would make the Knicks a championship contender.
