Baron Davis Going to the Knicks

Marc Stein reported it this afternoon:
Just going up on ESPN com: Sources say Baron Davis has committed to sign with Knicks. Link on the way
It's been said for awhile now that there was mutual interest, and Mike D'Antoni acknowledged that the team would be interested. Likewise, Davis's herniated that was originally supposed to take 8-10 weeks to heal, is said to be healing a little bit quicker. Via Marc Berman:
As I reported today, believe Baron Davis can be on the court in a month despite his disk issues, not the 8-to-10 week nonsense.
Obviously Baron's conditioning and health will be a factor, but if he gets healthy this could be a huge pickup for the Knicks. Davis is a good scorer and great playmaker and will give the Knicks a true point guard option. You'd have to assume that this would eventually move Toney Douglas back to the bench, which would give the bench an extra scoring punch.

Welcome, Baron!
