Baron Davis Amnestied

Postby silentjim » Thu Dec 15, 2011 2:26 am

Baron Davis was amnestied tonight during all of the CP3 stuff. He seems to be having mega back issues, so not sure he's worth drafting anymore, but at least worth monitoring.

Bump Irving up a bit and look for Sessions to potentially be semi serviceable again in deep leagues. He attacks the rim and shoots well from the line.

Have there been any teams that have expressed interest in Baron?

I drafted Irving in the Bonanza League's draft here at the Cafe. Hopefully the Cavs don't sign anyone significant to take any minutes away from Irving this year and just let him run wild.

Baron's agent has said that Baron is out for at least 8-10 weeks because of a herniated disc. Can't see anyone wanting to pick him up until he's over that.
Yes, Warriors sold at last!

Rumor is it's not that bad? Regardless, I'd never take the chance on a guy who has had trouble staying fit and healthy for some time now. NEITHER should fantasy managers.

Yeah it's more like 2-4 weeks and not the 8-10. Think if he lands in the right situation (NY) and is actually motivated to play, could pan out and provide some decent value. But that's a big if.

Maybe you know his motor better than I; however, I figure this guy is all about the new situation and then 10 hours later, he forgets all about it as he's partying all around town. ;-7

Baron's signing in NY for $2.5 mill.

There's rumors they get him AND Arenas.

you may have hit the nail on the head here... worth a look in deeper leagues if he opts to skip surgery.

Even if he's back in 2-4 weeks, he's not going to be in shape. I'll bet that he'll have another injury before the season is done.
