Former Hornet Baron Davis Attempting NBA Comeback


Former Charlotte Hornets star Baron Davis is looking to make a comeback somewhere in the NBA this season. This news is based on reports of Jared Zwerling from the Bleacher Report. The 36 year old Davis last played in the NBA three seasons ago. He last played with the New York Knicks in the season after their fifty-four win playoff season.

Despite not having a strong showing that year, Davis evidently believed that time and rest have put him back together and he is ready to give the game another go. Does the game need am aging combo guard? That is what Davis trying to find out.

Davis has stated his objective is to play twenty minutes a game. That would make him a backup guy, but one solidly in the rotation. As such he would be looking for a team with an established point guard who just needs someone to show up and keep the engine running on the court.

One team that will not be calling Davis for a workout will likely be the Charlotte Hornets. Davis is a point guard, and the Hornets have been pretty set with their point guard depth since the acquisition of Jeremy Lin in free agency. Davis might also be looking for a team with a clearer road to the playoffs.

If that is the case then he may well look West. The Clippers have Chris Paul, but Austin Rivers has not fully claimed the number two spot yet. Another possibility might be the Lakers. If the Lakers play D’Angelo Russell at the two and Kobe Bryant at the three. Then there could be minutes at the point behind Jordan Clarkson.

Davis is looking at a tall order here. Out of the league three years, older, and not an obvious weapon until workouts say otherwise. Good luck Baron, but this is not NBA Street Vol 3.
