Baron Davis: It’s Not Good to Be Lied to
He and Golden State vice president Chris Mullin had a tentative agreement for a three-year, $39 million contract extension before Warriors President Robert Rowell refused those parameters. Davis opted out and signed a five-year, $65 million deal with the Clippers.
"Not to keep dwelling on it, but me and Mullin, we had a great relationship," Davis said. "From the time that we made our playoff run, I was just told to be patient and everything was going to work out. It’s not good to be lied to, and to Chris Mullin’s credit, he did a great job of being honest, and you really don’t find that much in this league.
"They said don’t make it a big deal, we’re going to take care of Baron. Everybody knew that I was going to be there. And I guess upper management felt that they needed to go in a different direction. There’s no hard feelings at all. It’s a business. I totally understand that. – sfgate.com
