Baron Davis Denies Wanting to Return to Warriors

Jackson said that Davis wants to return to the Warriors.

"That’s all we talked about. . . . He wants to come back. And if he wants to come back, I want him back," Jackson told the Contra Costa Times.

Davis denied that he is ready to bail off the listing 8-21 Clippers ship.

"No, I don’t want out," he told The Times on Monday at practice. "I don’t know what Stephen Jackson got from my conversation. That never came out of my mouth.

"I’m here. I’m here doing the same thing I did at Golden State. The first year I got to Golden State it was rough. It was a tough season. We were figuring each other out, figuring out the system. That transition year is always a tough year."
