Baron Davis told SiriusXM NBA Radio during an interview on Tuesday that he will try out for some NBA teams this offseason in an attempt to make an NBA comeback.
"This is the first time I'm going to put myself out there, I'm going to try out for some teams," said Davis. B-Diddy was one of the most exciting players to watch during his prime, but he really struggled to stay healthy towards the end dealing with back issues and eventually blowing out his knee towards the end of the 2011-12 season. Additionally, Davis has been attempting an NBA comeback since 2013, so we're skeptical that the 36-year-old will be able to earn an NBA contract. Jul 21 - 2:29 PM

Baron Davis told Sports Illustrated that he's been working out and is hoping to get a call from a team.

"I'm feeling good, man," Davis said. I'm working out a lot, getting back in basketball shape. At some point, I'm going to get a call and a workout, and I'll show them what I can do. But it feels good to just be able to play again and be back on the court, and now it's just a matter of climbing back up that mountain and proving to people that I can still do it." While the 35-year-old might have the desire to play, it takes two to tango and it would be a surprise to see an NBA team sign him at this point.

TMZ reports that Baron Davis is "in talks to return to the NBA."

TMZ also reports that Davis is in communication with multiple teams including the Clippers, Cavs and Lakers. The last time we saw Davis on the floor was when he shredded his knee on the Knicks at the end of the 2011-12 season, so it's been almost three full seasons since he was last in the league. That's a long way of saying we'll believe it when we see it.

Baron Davis is still attempting to make a comeback in the NBA, and said that he'd love to return to the Cavaliers.

Davis is a highly entertaining personality and it would be great to see him latch on with a team, but it's not going to happen. The 35-year-old said that he's still not 100 percent after tearing his ACL and MCL two years ago, and we're more likely to see him return as an assistant coach than a player.

Baron Davis says he's working out in an attempt to return to the NBA this season.

"My whole thing is to get in the best shape of my life and by September or October be ready to showcase my talent and try out for whoever I need to try out for," Davis said. "I think the most important thing is being in shape." The former All-Star spent last season out of the game after blowing out his knee in the 2012 playoffs and we're very skeptical he'll find a lasting spot on a roster this fall.

Baron Davis is working out and may be attempting an NBA comeback, according to Sean Deveney of the Sporting News.

Deveney's source acknowledges that a B-Diddy comeback is a "longshot," which is kind. He is 34 years old coming off major surgery to repair a torn ACL, MCL and patella tendon, and he struggled with back pain and conditioning issues prior to blowing out his knee. We'll have plenty of advance warning if an NBA team considers signing him.

Baron Davis (knee surgery) will work for the Knicks in an "advisory capacity" next season, as well as helping the team with charity work, in-game entertainment, and possibly scouting.

Baron will miss the entire 2012-13 season while he rehabs from a torn right ACL, MCL and patella tendon, but he still plans to mount a comeback in the NBA. In spite of his multi-faceted involvement with the Knicks this year, he's not expected to be given an official title.

Unrestricted free agent Baron Davis (knee surgery) will remain with the Knicks in "some capacity," his agent told ESPN New York.

New York "won't re-sign Davis as a player" since he's expected to miss most, if not all of the 2012-13 season, but "management has approached him about staying on board." Davis is said to be "very excited about the opportunity," which is believed to be a mentor role behind the scenes. Although Davis still wants to make a comeback and is currently walking without a knee brace or crutches, he's still got a long way to go.

Baron Davis (torn ACL and MCL) reportedly "intends to return to the league this season," but his lengthy rehab may force him to wait until 2013-14.

"I’m feeling good, getting there," Baron said on Sunday. "A lot of rehab. A lot of rehab." He apparently looked "trim and healthy" while hosting a charity event last weekend, but a healthy dose of skepticism is required when it comes to Baron's health and conditioning -- it would be stunning to see him on a basketball court before next summer.

Unrestricted free agent Baron Davis (knee surgery) said that he has no plans to retire.

"I don't know how long (for the brace and crutch), but once I am done, it's on to rehab," he said. "I am coming back." Davis said that he would welcome the opportunity to return to the Knicks when he's healthy enough to play, but that's still very far away at this point. After undergoing reconstructive surgery in May, Davis is expected to miss at least 12 months.

Free agent Baron Davis underwent right knee surgery Thursday.

Davis, 33, is now facing 12 months of rehab after tearing his ACL, MCL and patella tendon. He's also dealt with back woes, weight problems and declining effectiveness over the last few seasons. Davis' NBA career is in jeopardy.

In addition to the partial tear of Baron Davis' patella tendon, an MRI revealed a complete tear of the ACL and MCL in his right knee.

It's one of the most devastating injuries an athlete can have. Davis will have surgery this week and a recovery timetable has been set at 12 months. Considering he's already 33 with sapped athleticism, Davis' career is in major doubt. The Knicks will lean on Mike Bibby in Game 5 against the Heat and will need to match all offers for impending restricted free agent Jeremy Lin this summer.

Baron Davis has been diagnosed with a dislocated right patella (kneecap) and will undergo further testing for structural damage.

It's hard to imagine Baron not needing major surgery, which would put his future in the NBA in doubt given his age and injury history. For now, the team will rely on Mike Bibby and Toney Douglas, with Jeremy Lin potentially available if New York forces Game 5.

Baron Davis left Game 4 on Sunday with a potentially devastating knee injury.

Davis left on a stretcher and replays of the injury are hard to watch -- it would be very surprising if he didn't do major damage to the knee. For now, the team will rely on Mike Bibby and Toney Douglas, with Jeremy Lin potentially available if New York forces Game 5.

Baron Davis is hoping to avoid offseason back surgery.

After his back stiffened up in Game 1, Davis said "this is definitely a problem." Boom Dizzle has struggled with back issues all season long, and the fact that his back continues to be problematic is not a good sign for his long-term health. He needed 10 months to recover from a herniated disc suffered last season, and surgery would likely sideline him indefinitely.
