Baron Davis will be staying with the Knicks this season, but in a different role.
credit: twitter.com It is safe to say that Baron Davis had a bit of a rough season with the Knicks. He never really got on track with the team, as he shot only 37% from the field and had a very mediocre Player Efficiency Rating (PER). Some Knicks fans had high hopes for the once exciting point guard, the one who led his eighth-seeded Golden State Warriors past the top-seeded Dallas Mavericks. Jeremy Lin was the point guard that New York was talking about, and the 33-year-old veteran ended his season with a torn ACL and MCL in an eventual playoff loss to the Miami Heat. Some were curious as to what Baron Davis might do now. The Knicks have a lot of point guards, with Raymond Felton, Jason Kidd, and Pablo Prigioni now on the roster. He won’t be playing for the team this season, but it does look like he will have a role with the Knicks. According to Slam Online, Baron Davis will serve in a “multi-faceted” role with the Knicks this season. It will be off the court, but it sounds like he will be pretty active with the organization. “Baron Davis will have a multi-faceted role with the Knicks this season: He will spend some time around the team in an advisory role; he will work with Madison Square Garden’s ‘Garden of Dreams’ Foundation; he’s expected to provide content for MSG’s in-game entertainment and he may do some scouting for the team, according to two sources with knowledge of Davis’ agreement with the Knicks. Davis, 33, suffered a serious right knee injury in last season’s playoffs, and is expected to miss the entire 2012-13 season. He’s currently an unrestricted free agent, but the veteran point guard has maintained close ties with the team. He’s spent a significant time rehabbing his injury at the team facility and he maintains a close relationship with several players.” Well, it looks like Davis liked the team enough during his brief stay to stick around. Actually, the more likely situation is that he realized no team really needs his services on the court, and he wanted to take what he could get to stick around the game. Many around the league believe Baron Davis was a underachiever in his team in the NBA. His weight frequently fluctuated, and he never really seemed like he was in great shape. Davis averaged over 20 points per game multiple times in his career, although he was never a terribly efficient player. Baron Davis averaged 6 points and 5 assists for the Knicks last season.
