Default What will Baron Davis do now with Brand joining Sixers? Join Clips still, back out?

and has only VERBALLY agreed to join the Clippers, can he back out now that Brand is going to Philly?

from my understanding a verbal contract is as good as signing a contract...same as a handshake..once u agree...u agree.

One can flip around and say "since Elton hasn't signed with Philly yet, can he still go elsewhere or go back to LA".

Depends on whether the "verbal agreement" was under the assumption that Brand was resigned, which it almost certainly was.

They can...but Baron Davis was signing with LAC in the hope that he'd play with Brand. So I don't think it works both ways

He chose the wrong team in LA to sign with now that Brand is probably gone.

Default Baron Davis one last chance.

He only made a verbal commitment to join the clippers he could go back on his word and sign to another team?

I didn't think he would have to sign since nothing can be made official. Maybe I'm wrong. Just thought it was like when a college player commits to a school, but it doesn't mean anything until he signs his letter of intent.

clippers can still get somebody, whether its randolph, okafor, smith, or resigning maggette. baron will not back out of the deal.

heres the deal that people seem to forget/ignore. if there was a verbal agreement or understanding between booz and cleveland, it would have violated the cba and been considered collusion. a verbal agreement aint shi except among gentleman. ya falkin pantywaisted gentleman. straight up goon!
