Default Davis To Sign With The Clippers!

Quote:
In a move that shakes the landscape of an already deep Western Conference, the Clippers reached agreement on a contract with All-Star point guard Baron Davis on Tuesday, according to Davis' agent. The deal is expected to be signed for five years and $65 million once the NBA's moratorium period ends next week. "From a basketball standpoint, it's always been about winning for Baron," said Todd Ramasar, Davis' agent. "This presented a good opportunity to do that, to pair him with Chris Kaman and Elton Brand expected back." And Brand, indeed, is back. The All-Star power forward who opted out of his contract a day earlier for free agency is expected to reach an agreement with the Clippers on a new multiyear deal, possibly as soon as today

Damn, didn't expect to see this happen at all. I always thought that he'd be back with the Warriors next year. After seeing them win 48 games last season, I was expecting big things from this team in the future, now it looks like they might take a step back, especially in the tough wild wild west.
Baron was looking for a long term deal, but that didn't happen with Goldenstate, so the clippers jumped right in and offered him a long term contract that he was looking for.
This sucks, I liked seeing him play with the Warriors.
Thoughts?

Never underestimate the power of friendship. Brand's prodding is what got Davis thinking about the whole situation. Brand visited the Celtics before one of the games during the Finals, and the experience inspired him to make sacrafices to lead his team to wins. Brand agreed to take less money if the Clippers could get him a worthy guard, and Davis, who is also a longtime friend and fellow movie producer of Brand, fits that mold perfectly.

Ellis
Jackson

What if Brand ends up jumping ship to the Warriors now to earn more money? Wouldn't that be ironic? Personally if I were a Warriors fan, I would be pretty satisfied with what basically equals a straight up trade between the Clips and Warriors for their two franchise players.

Then again, Brand might be smarter to take the pay cut and have the opportunity to be on a championship contender, which the Clippers would be IMO with Baron, Brand, Kaman, Thornton, Gordon, Mobley, Thomas, Williams, Knight. That is a whole ass load of talent right there, though they may have to wait a season or two for Thornton and Gordon to mature a bit before they contend for a title.
