Davis’ last season in the NBA was with the New York Knicks in 2011-12. At the end of the 2011 season Davis suffered a herniated disk in his back causing him to miss a majority of games the following season.
In Game four of the 2012 playoffs against the Miami Heat, an MRI showed that Davis completely tore his MCL and ACL and partially tore his patella tendon in his knee. Since that time he has been rehabbing and trying to recover and get back into basketball playing shape.
Baron is 34-years old, and has played in the NBA from 1999-2012. Former Knick is a two-time All-Star and two-time NBA steals leader. Davis has a career average of 16.1 ppg, 7.2 apg, 1.8 spg, and had a 40 percent field goal percentage. Baron hopes that a team will show mutual interest in his talents.
The Lakers might be a potential suitor who have expressed previous interest. It may just be a long shot to make it back to the NBA but Baron will definitely give it a try.
