According to various sources, including common sense, the Los Angeles Clippers are ready and willing to deal Baron Davis.
The mercurial point guard's Southern California struggles have been well documented and trade speculation has abounded for months, so this is not exactly a news flash. However, it seems as if now might be the time to finally initiate active talks.
Will suitors be lining up to acquire the 31-year-old, out-of-shape, balky-kneed, large-contract-wielding Davis? Nope.
But he is definitely tradeable. These days you can sell almost anything to anyone. For God's sake, infomercials are persuading innocent housewives to purchase shamwows! I bet you could even find a way to sell stripes to a zebra... If a zebra had money and language skills... Well, you get what I mean.
Which teams, then, are prepared to take a gamble on Davis, hoping that perceived malaise is actually lingering injury and that he will soon become fully healthy and return to his former self. Good Baron is a dangerous weapon that could turn a solid squad into a contender or push a middling team into the playoffs.
