Knicks Sign Baron Davis

If you follow (thank you) then you know that Fitz and Vig like big names.  And pro basketball fans know that 32 yeard old Baron Davis definitely qualifies as a big name.  With the 2011/2012 season being just moments from tipping off (Christmas Day), the New York Knickerbockers have signed The Baron to a veteran’s minimum $1.4m deal (thanks, NBA Soft Salary Cap).

Davis’ most recent team, the Cavs, cut ties with the combo guard due to the arrival of #1 draft pick Kyrie Irving.  The Cavs have to pay BD the rest of the $28m they still owe him, so the Knicks salary is simply extra cheese on the Whopper, baby.  Not to toot the proverbial horn, but Fitz and Vig predicted this parade of minimum wage signings, at the moment we reported on the Tyson Chandler acquisition.  Unfortunately, the two time allstar has a back injury and is projected to miss about 2 months, which is particularly important because of the lockout-shortened season.
