February 24th skip to 9 minute mark.

Basically saying that the cavs don't have too much interest in Baron at all their just looking to a buy out. Makes sense because I had no idea why EITHER team would do this trade. The interesting part in this is the potential involvement of Miami if he does get bought out. Whats peoples thoughts on this one?

Baron Davis sucks.

Mario Chalmers and Carlos Arroyo make him look like John Stockton.

A.) Does not fit with Miami, needs ball in his hands, and you have 3 of those guys in the line-up already?
B.) He wont take a buy-out, he's got too much money left in that contract that he wants.
C.) He wouldn't work in the Miami offense, he's too slow.

A) Not like Baron's a scoring machine only, he can dish if he has good teammates
B) This is true
C) Um, he was the leader and catalyst of the GS warriors

He probably doesn't fit too well with the HEAT but he is still better than any of our current point guards and is much better at dishing the rock.

The Cavs got a high draft pick, thats the point of the deal. If you're going to suck for a few years, what difference does it make if you have Baron or Mo WIlliams? Sure they could buy him out, but how much money is Baron willing to sacrifice? Baron doesn't exactly strike me as the kind of guy who is going to give up a ton of money just to be on a contender.

I dont think the cavs are gonna allow any of their players to go to Miami at all and if their is a slight possibilty that buying out Davis so he could go to Miami I dont think the Cavs owner would to that at all.

Have you watched him since he's been with Clippers, its like all he does is hang with Eddy Curry and eat Cheeseburgers! He's gotten slow and all he does is look to score, he can make a pass but all the clippers fans thanked the big G-man when he did!

02-24-2011, 08:38 PM
I don't see him leaving twenty five million or however much it is on the table. He'll prbly fake injuries the rest of the year and try and force a trade.

Baron Davis sucks.

:clap:

He's never been on a great team, it would be interesting to see him on one and see what he is really capable of. IMO he's been the best player on a lot of bad teams.

beasted86
02-24-2011, 08:52 PM
Baron Davis, Rip Hamilton, Gilbert Arenas, Mike Bibby, etc....

None of these guys with years left on their contract are getting bought out unless they are giving up A LOT of money. Basically... starting up a dialogue willing to give up half might at least get a discussion going.

People whine about rumors regarding players going to the Knicks? Every washed-up, ex-stud is ALWAYS rumored to be going to Miami. It's kinda funny. Man, Miami better hope the CBA isn't as restrictive as everyone keeps saying it will be. They might be in trouble. But it's all good... Lebron says they're winning 7 rings, so it's cool. LOL.

baron might be a lazy bum, but he doesnt suck. he would help the heat, a lot. and would defer, as well. hope it doesn't happen.

I can't picture Davis leaving that money on the table in a buyout to go to a contender

I remember when Baron use to be the ****, but imo he's washed up now. I wish he got bought out and came to the raps, i know that won't happen, but i'm sick and tired of being sick and tired -.-

You don't want fat boy in your team. He sucks.

He's on my fantasy team this year and he's been putting up about 16 points, 6 rebounds, and 7 assists every night. Of course those numbers will go down on Miami, but to say he sucks is just you being naive.

RCarlson85
02-24-2011, 10:35 PM
As much as people may think Davis sucks, he is far better than Chalmers or Arroyo. The problem with him is that he isn't motivated when he's on bad teams and seems to get "injured" all the time. He was really good on the hornets and the Warriors. When he's motivated, he's a good player. I don't know what would be more motivating than playing with Wade, Lebron, and Bosh and having a real chance at a title. I'm all for signing him if he were to get bought out.

Cracka2HI!
02-24-2011, 10:35 PM
I can tell you as a Clipper fan he is at the top of his game right now. He could help a contender. He hasn't been chucking(much) this season. He would be a huge upgrade in Miami. Honestly he would be smart to take a buyout. Even if he gave up $10 million he would be an UFA this offseason so he could easily make that money back plus a lot more. He still has a lot left!

He actually has seemed pretty motivated recently. I think the emergence of Griffin has really helped. Davis was injured awhile ago, but since coming back he's looked really good actually.

he'd have to take minimum salery with the heats payroll though, if he's willing, it wld be a nice move to add some depth.

Can he handle being the 3rd ball handler? I don't think so, but I also don't think it would be a bad gamble by the Heat either. Worst case scenario they just let him go if it doesn't work.

Giantwarrior
02-25-2011, 12:17 AM
no way the cavs will write him a 28 million dollar check to buy him out.

hotpotato1092
02-25-2011, 12:21 AM
You guys are missing the point, do you guys think Dan Gilbert would EVER do anything that would have even a remote chance of helping the Heat? I doubt it, he's either staying put or Baron's giving some kind of guarantee he's not going to Miami.

Marques24kobe
02-25-2011, 12:35 AM
I think if he got bought out, he would go back to the west coast. Hes from LA and obviously already lives there. And just like the guy above me said, why would Dan Gilbert help the Heat out. Besides thats a lot of money to spend on a buyout. Your looking at $20 million + since he has $30 million left of his contract.

How can miami afford all these players? Evryone i hear that might be bought out immediatly are favored to go to miami. Jesus its like jordan just came out of retirement and hes like to sign with miami? Stop with that bs.

I dont think he will....anyway, I thought the Cavs intended on keeping him, let him get his groove back like he was in Los Angeles and next year he becomes more tradeable or gets to play on a Cavs team that certainly wont be as bad as they are this season.

FairWeatherFan?
02-25-2011, 09:35 AM
I am amazed anyone thinks Dan Gilbert would pay him millions to go and join #6 and his quest for a title.:facepalm:

The Cavs will hold onto him untill they can flip him.

Raidaz4Life
02-25-2011, 09:39 AM
The heat do not need another ball handler.


People don't seem to get that the Heat need a shooter at PG like Billups, Curry, or Hinrich..... not another primary ball handler who needs the ball to function.

Nope, it ain't happening. Gilbert is not going to buyout his contract so he can go play for Miami. Like someone else said, he's not going to try to help out Miami in any kind of way. Baron will play for that contract. He is trade bait for down the road anyway.

he'll fit in perfectly then since that's all they do anyway is hand the ball to two players :laugh:

He probably doesn't fit too well with the HEAT but he is still better than any of our current point guards and is much better at dishing the rock.

I think adding a him may just cause the chemistry to take longer to perfect. Wade and LBJ give out enough assists. The only good thing about getting a great PG is LBJ and Wade won't have the ball as much and everyone will be involved. Also when Wade is on the bench, LBJ does more isolation plays and visa versa. Heat need to work from the inside out, not outside in. They have enough talent, it is not the issue. Their chemistry is the problem. It is not easy to mesh LBJ and Wade because of their playing styles. That is really what is hurting them IMO. They are having a tough time figuring that out (the coach and the players).

baron davis is just another guy that wants to shoot the ball and handle the ball the majority of the time. if he goes to miami, then they will have 3 guys that need the ball in their hands
