Baron Davis Will Sign Contract With Knicks, According To Report

The New York Knicks will apparently have a big-name point guard in the 2011-12 NBA season — it just won't be Chauncey Billups. ESPN's Marc Stein reports that Baron Davis will join the Knicks, with a deal possibly coming on Sunday.

Davis, who was traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Cleveland Cavaliers last season, was waived by the Cavaliers under the amnesty provision of the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement. He cleared waivers and was eligible to sign with any team in the NBA.

Davis has had injury problems in his last few seasons after developing into one of the league's best point guards in the middle of the decade with the Golden State Warriors, but he averaged 13.9 points per game in just over 25 minutes per game in limited action with Cleveland in 2011, and remains a large, physical defender when he is healthy.
