Byron Scott Promises to Get Along With Baron Davis

by February 25, 2011

The first time these two worked together, in New Orleans, things did not go well (to say the least.) Now that they’re re-united in Cleveland, Byron says past conflicts with Davis are no longer an issue. The Akron Beacon Journal reports: “Byron Scott on reuniting with Baron Davis: ‘Baron and I talked last year in pre-season. He told me he wrote a letter that he wanted to send me but he said I was there in person. He just wanted to tell me his feelings and from that point on we’ve been great. I’m looking forward to having him here. I think you guys know the type of talent he has from the point guard position. He can definitely elevate our basketball team and make us better. I haven’t spoken to him as of yet. probably when i’m done with you guys i’ll go in and try to give him a call and see where his head is. But I’m excited about it. Our organization is excited. We’re ready to get started.’ What did Baron say to you during the preseason game?: ‘To be honest he wanted to really kind of apologize for some of the things that happened in New Orleans. He felt that he understood now that I was just trying to make him a better basketball player. As you guy might not know, I can be tough on guys at times. I don’t think he accepted it at that particular time, but he’s said he’s matured and like I said, it’s water under the bridge. We let it go and our relationship has been very good ever since.'”
