Report: Baron Davis is on the block. Good luck with that.

Nov 6, 2010, 10:07 AM EDT


What’s the easiest way to move a declining point guard with three years and $41.65 million remaining on his contract who’s out with a knee injury? Talk about him publicly as being out of shape to the point of not playing him! That’s how! Or at least, that’s the Clipper way.

Yahoo! Sports reports that the Clippers are looking into what kind of offers they can receive for Baron Davis. This after Vinny Del Negro criticized Davis’ conditioning earlier this week as Baron arrived for the start of the season in his usual chunky state. Note for future reference: if you want to move someone who is difficult to move, convincing teams he’s also (still) lazy is probably not the best approach.

So who’d be looking to move for Davis? Your best chance is to try and get in on a three-way deal, possibly something involving Carmelo Anthony going elsewhere, in return for bad contracts that you can swallow. No one is desperate enough for Baron Davis right now at point guard besides Miami, and they’d have to move one of the Triad to acquire him. Somehow I don’t see that happening.

The careers of Elton Brand and Baron Davis are so bizarrely similar. Were at their peak with fanbases who loved them, decided to go elsewhere, and things fell apart. You have to wonder how things would have worked out if they’d just stayed home two years ago.

    Carmela Anthony for Baron Davis straight-up. Makes sense to me (Clippers fan)

    The Clippers should outright release Baron Davis. They have been down this road before with Davis and they know how its going to end. Just go with the young in Bledsoe and wait for Foye to get healthy. That is a fine backcourt. Davis is just wasting a roster spot at this point. Plus, the Clippers missed out on getting something in a trade when they declined the Cavs offer.

    What about Baron Davis & a pick for the contracts of Diop & Carroll?

    Larry Brown wouldn’t approve but I bet SJax would love the idea and try to talk him into it, and it seems like a move Jordan would want to make considering Diop/Carrol are just dead contracts at the end of the bench.
