I know this has been touched on in multiple different threads so it deserves to be addressed in one place.. I can not understand why the Cavs would use the amnesty clause on Baron Davis when his talent and effect on a team (which we should all be witnesses to) make him legitimate trade bait. I still think the Lakers could use a boost in creators and a boost at the PG spot to get more out of everybody. Then the lockdown Mike Brown defense can attempt to get their multidimensional talent over the hump. If other teams need to be involved, so be it. He can help other teams too. I feel like the current Baron Davis would do more for the Knicks than does the current Chauncey Billups. Am I crazy? I assume we can at least get some late picks in some sort of swap. Maybe get a guy who expires sooner, which financially would be almost the equivalent of amnestying BD if the Cavs need to save money. What we have to gain from amnestying Baron is nothing more than saving money. Not our owner's biggest priority right now. I would say a higher priority for the Cavs is acquiring draft picks. So we if we're going to part with him at all, I'd hope the Cavs go the trade route. I'm also fine with him staying. It's basketball.
