Remember John Salmons. Dude was suppose to play for the Raptors, yet he said God didn't want him there and suddenly he is a King although he had a verbal agreement.

Oh ok, got you. You're right, and I don't blame Baron for doing it, if he does, but I think he wants to play in LA

Verbal agreements don't mean **** till you sign the piece of paper. Go ask Eric Gordon.

Anyone following college basketball knows that decommitting is part of the game. I doubt it's any different in the NBA.

Well, Baron won't really have any money offers elsewhere. The Warriors are set to offer Maggette 50M, Elton is going to the Sixers. No one has cap space that is going to try to lure Baron away anymore.

Baron is stuck in LA, too bad things didn't turn out how they were suppose to be.

The only thing that can free Davis now is if in the verbal agreement it was stated that Elton Brand had to resign or he could go elsewhere...

Exactly what I said

verbal agreement is like a commitment
signing the contract is the letter of intent

Well, if he thinks he can remain healthy, he could sign for the MLE somewhere for one season then get a big contract next season

I have a feeling there is going to be at least one more big twist in this story. Maybe a last minute sign and trade.

Could happen, but won't be much of a big twist. It might be Elton S&T'd for the Wolves 2nd rounder which Phila acquired or Jason Smith or something, but won't be anything worth ****, at least to the Clippers

The odds of that happening are slim. Regardless of how hard you train and try to keep away from injury, there will always be the risk of injury. From a business standpoint, you take the money the Clippers are giving you and never look back. It's just financially smart, you don't put yourself in a vulnerable position unless you REALLY REALLY want to win. Honestly, the way I would see it, I can win later in life I'll make the money now while I'm still young.

If I were Baron i'd say fucc the verbal agreement. But he is from LA so he might have more incentive.

If Baron were to change his mind nobody could blame him, him agreeing was with the intention of playing with Elton. The only problem is he would be stuck in a market that now just includes Memphis and the Clips. I say it would be in his best interest to tuck tail and try to get Golden State to change their mind and decide to offer him back some of that money that he left on the table.

Qrich, should the clippers pull the offer to baron and regrop? get ready to make a run at one of the big 2010 free agents instead? they have the perfect chance right now to do it

They've offered it to Maggette though. They had to renounce his rights to do so. His only choice is sign with LA, or break off the verbal agreement and go sign for a 1 year deal MLE (like qrich suggested) elsewhere. I doubt he would be stupid enough to do that.
