Cavaliers Amnesty Baron Davis (did NOT see that comin')

"The Cavaliers announced Wednesday night that they're releasing Davis in advance of Friday's amnesty deadline after exploring both trade and buyout possibilities with the former All-Star. Rougly $27 million of the nearly $30 million left on Davis' contract is guaranteed. The Cavs would still have to pay Davis all that money if they send him away, but the amnesty clause in the new labor agreement -- unlike the 2005 version -- give teams salary cap relief as well as tax relief on a player released via amnesty. Sources with knowledge of Davis' thinking told ESPN.com in early November that the former UCLA star's hometown Los Angeles Lakers and the New York Knicks are the two teams he's always dreamed of playing for.' via Marc Stein, ESPN.com Seriously, I'd love if Baron fell onto the Lakers squad as their starting PG after CP3 fell through. They couldn't do much worse. --------------------------------------------------------------------- UH-OH Baron Davis has a serious herniated disk injury and will miss a minimum of eight to ten weeks. http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap/217540/Baron_Davis_Out_8_10_Weeks_With_Herniated_Disk
