Baron Davis is on the verge of returning to the hardwood.
Davis, a two-time All-Star, is expected to sign a contract with the NBA’s Development League by Wednesday, his agent, Todd Ramasar, told Yahoo! Sports. The 36-year-old hasn’t played in the NBA since 2012 but reportedly has been contemplating a return for two years.
“He is looking forward to playing in the D-League and showing teams what he is capable of,” Ramasar told Yahoo! Sports. “He feels that the timing is right. More than anything, Baron has put in the training and is confident in his body. He feels he is ready to return to the NBA.”
Davis last played for the New York Knicks during the 2011-12 season before tearing his ACL and MCL in the playoffs. The 6-foot-3 point guard has averaged 16.1 points and 7.2 assists per game throughout his NBA career, which has included stops with the (Charlotte/New Orleans) Hornets, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers in addition to the Knicks.
“Every pro athlete wants to retire on his terms,” Ramasar told Yahoo! Sports. “His current last game wasn’t the way he wanted to go out. He is very excited about the D-League.”
Davis has earned more than $147 million in his NBA career, according to Basketball-Reference.com.
