Baron Davis to Join Knicks?

There is little doubt that the Knicks will shop for a point guard this summer, but at least one has come shopping for them. According to a person with knowledge of the situation, the Warriors’ Baron Davis has made inquiries into the interest of certain teams around the league, including the Knicks.

Davis, 29, has an opt-out clause for this summer that could make him a free agent, but the Warriors don’t believe he would walk away from the final year and $17.8 million, which is money the dynamic but oft-injured guard likely wouldn’t make on the open market. So Davis’ only other play is to see if another team would pursue a sign-and-trade for him. [Newsday]
