Baron Davis reportedly has a verbal agreement
with the Clippers for a 5-year, $65M deal. If this move appeases Elton Brand, which it probably will, then he'll sign with them.
To make it work, Maggette would have to be renounced, then Brand would have to sign for somewhere near $14M for the first year to clear up the $13M to pay Baron.
It looks like it's Josh Smith or no one in the free agent market at this point. Unless Maggette at the 2 intrigues Ed Stefanski, which I don't think it will, at least I hope it won't.
Bad turn of events after a feel-good 24 hours. Oh well.
Don't be surprised if we start hearing Nenad Krstic's name when Josh Smith signs his extension with Atlanta.
