Baron Davis Has Been Waived

Quite truthfully, I'm tired of speculating on free agents and possible additions. I'm very much looking forward to having a complete Knicks team to analyze and write about, but news is news, and this bears regurgitating. From Ken Berger:
announce they've waived Baron Davis via the amnesty provision.
Teams under the salary cap (the Knicks are not one of them) can now bid on Davis. However, given the fact that he has a back injury, and has had health/conditioning/motivation problems in the past, teams may stay away from him. If he clears waivers and isn't picked up by any team, he becomes a free agent and the Knicks will be able to bid on his services. Mr. Alan Hahn reports that there is mutual interest.

Davis would be a pretty exciting player for the Knicks to have. Though he may be injured, he'd be worthwhile keeping around for when he is healthy. I don't think he'd act up on a team with Amar'e, Carmelo and Tyson Chandler, and he would fill an immediate need for a point guard and extra scoring. He's a talented passer and very good in the pick-and-roll too.

As has been the case lately, we'll have to wait and see what happens.
