Clippers Looking to Trade Baron Davis

Can’t imagine there are a lot of takers, given Davis‘ exorbitant contract. From Marc Spears: “The Los Angeles Clippers are exploring whether anyone has interest in trading for point guard Baron Davis. Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro recently criticized Davis’ conditioning, and the Clippers won their first game of the season – a 107-92 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder – with Davis out of lineup because of a swollen left knee. Including this season, Davis has three years and $41.8 million left on his contract.”

    Kahn is probably looking at this and saying: “I should get another point guard, plus this one’s not in shape!”

  • MikeC.

    @Vince – Kahn would put Baron at the 4 so that they can keep Love on the bench.

    I was kind of surprised by this, but then again, they DID draft Bledsoe and dude has been playing out of his mind.

    What a shock…not. Baron has never been a real star player. He plays like a maniac in contract years and otherwise he’s too fat or injured or lazy. The Clips don’t need him anymore with EG, Griffin, Bledsoe, Kaman, and a decent point guard in Randy Foye.

    if only he could play for the clips like he did for the warriors the last couple years he was there.. he used to be one of my fav points he could do it all then he jus goes to LA n gets fat n out of shape.. they would be better off lettin bledsoe start the rest of the season.. he is their point for the future

  • ImaSOBER

    Damn. Just One slip up and now they want to trade him? smh

    Bledsoe never got an opportunity to show what he could do behind the over hyped John Wall, so Bledsoe is going to be the man. Bledsoe is better than what people think, he should have stayed in college to show what he can do but, Clippers finally got a steal in the draft. BOOK IT!!

    ^thats right bro dude has big time game and would have been a top 10 pick maybe top 5 pick had he not chose to share the spotlight with john wall

    Please, please let this happen. Davis seems to kill any sort of urgency and intensity the Clippers are playing with when he’s on the court, especially defensively. Give Bledsoe a chance, it will clear the path for Gordon and Griffin to establish themselves as the undisputed leaders/stars of the team.

  • TrailBlazing&SportingLisbon

    so Baron Davis, Elton Brand and Gilbert Arenas walk into a bar…amd EVERY FU(KIN GM IN THE LEAGUE RUNS FOR HIS LIFE!!!hahahha, Bledsoe looks like the real deal though, thats nice for the Clips, meanwhile Kaman´s shooting like 19% from the field, he and Darko are lookin like sh1t!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Coney Islander

    Send him anywhere but NY!

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    Baron used to be one of the top pgs in the league, he seems to have just stopped trying since joining LAC.. Wonder if he could get his stats and determination back up on a contender??

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    So, Baron’s beard, Gil’s beard, and Harden’s beard walk into a bar..

  • The Philosopher

    He’s had a decent run.
    Even in Golden State he was not hungry.
    He’s made great money.

    The Clips should trade Baron Davis to Beskitas! a little AI BD action over in turkey

  • AL29

    Anyone want a fat, overpaid, overrated, often-injured, 31-year-old point guard who shoots a low field-goal percentage and is more interested in movies than basketball?

  • http://slamonline BossTerry

    1:57 post was not me…..

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/officerbarbrady what

    The Clippers, Wizards, and Sixers should just swap Brand, Davis, and Arenas for each other every couple of months just for fun.

  • Jose

    haha, wouldnt that be sumthin if Brand got traded for Bdiddy. that would be an awkward return…but the clip show does not need another PF so not happening…jrue holiday is doing well over in philly to anyway i believe

  • markojaric

    @Vince and @mike, the first two comments, thats hilarious!

  • http://www.twitter.com/gerardhimself Gerard Himself

    Bledsoe is doing fine as a starter. He, Gordon, Griffin and Kaman are a great core to build around. Hopefully they’ll have a good season. But man, Baron is untradeable.

  • flipnoyce

    Another player heading to China after his contract ends. I could see it a mile away!!! Good player but lack of unwillingness to perform!

  • Yes.We.Did.

    Send him to the NBA’s elephant graveyard

  • ClydeSays

    I’d be shocked if the Clips can trade him at all without parting with some young talent AND picks.

  • Ugh

    “Kahn would put Baron at the 4 so that they can keep Love on the bench. ”


    oh man this amazing for me. I just replace Jarrett Jack with Bledsoe in Fantasy Basketball.
