Baron Davis Agreed to $56.8 Million Extension with GSW


Multiple league sources have confirmed that, leading up to the opt-out deadline, Davis and Warriors chief Chris Mullin reached a tenative agreement–Davis would “opt-in” on his $17.8M for this season, then land a three-year, $39M extension ($13M per).

All money included, that would’ve given Baron $56.8M over four seasons, through the 2011-12 season. That was the deal. Both sides signed off, tenatively.

But for the offer to become official, it had to be approved by team president Robert Rowell, who speaks for owner Chris Cohan on all matters these days. (Rowell might as well be Cohan these days.)

And Rowell nixed it. Bye-bye Baron.
