Baron Davis said he isn't considering playing in the D-League next season.
While Davis played six games int he D-League last season, he's aiming higher and wants his comeback to be in the NBA. "Nah, I’m trying to get back to the NBA. The real thing," Davis said when asked if he'd consider the D-League again. While it would be a great story to see the 37-year-old back in the NBA, a training camp invite is his best hope at this point. Aug 16 - 10:40 AM

Baron Davis is still hoping to land another contract in the NBA.

The two-time All-Star hasn't played in the NBA since the 2011-12 season, but he did play six games in the D-League last season, averaging 12.8 points in 22 minutes a game. Davis has been keeping himself in shape by playing in the Drew League, but the best-case scenario for him would be to get a training camp invite.

Delaware 87ers sign G Baron Davis.

This should be fun. Davis in his prime was one of the best last decade, and the 36-year-old guard has a little left in the tank. It's too bad Andrei Kirilenko won't be in the D-League with him to recreate one of the best facials of all time.

Baron Davis has reportedly signed with the Delaware 87ers of the D-League.

Davis is hopeful to make an NBA comeback through the D-League, but even if he does get a call up, it's unlikely he's anything more than a third-string point guard. His days of relevancy in fantasy hoops are long behind him.
Mar 2 - 9:09 AM

Baron Davis went unclaimed through the D-League waiver wire process, and he's now free to sign on with a D-League team of his choosing.

The fact that D-League teams aren't making any effort to grab him isn't a great sign regarding a potential NBA return. In 2016, B-Diddy is an irrelevant name in fantasy hoops.

Baron Davis has officially signed with the D-League in the hopes of making an NBA comeback.

Davis reportedly had a workout with a Dallas scout at UCLA last Saturday morning, but the Mavs are an unlikely destination for B-Diddy with Deron Williams, Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea already on the roster. Even if he does manage to sign an NBA contract, the days of Davis being a fantasy option are well behind him.

Baron Davis is reportedly set to join a D-League team.

Davis has been trying to get back into the NBA since 2013, but this is the first time he's elected to try and prove himself via the D-League route. Even if he manages to land an NBA contract, he won't be anything more than a third-string point guard serving in a mentorship role. B-Diddy is well removed from his days of relevancy in fantasy leagues.
Jan 12 - 5:26 PM

Baron Davis said he is in great shape and is still hoping for an NBA comeback.

"I'm watching these guys on the court and thinking, I could be a good backup or even a third OG mentor," David said. "Some of these kids need that. That could be a great role." While it's nice to see B-Diddy healthy again after battling injuries for much of his NBA career, it's extremely unlikely that he'll catch on with an NBA team so fantasy owners can feel free to move to the next blurb.

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.

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.
Tue, Jul 15, 2014 02:10:00 PM

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.
Thu, Jul 18, 2013 02:46:00 PM

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.
