Baron Davis has his life as a film maker, and I’m sure there are other ventures that piqued his interest, but basketball and a proper exit were always at the forefront for point guard.
Davis was at the Vegas summer league taking in some of the action, and revealed that he plans to make a return to the NBA next season.
Between attempts at comedy, Davis says he has continued the rehabilitation process on the gruesome knee injury he suffered in the 2012 playoffs while playing for the Knicks. After taking the last season off (he spent a lot of time around the Knicks), he 34-year-old said he plans to return to the NBA this season.
“My whole thing is to get in the best shape of my life and by September or October be ready to showcase my talent and try out for whoever I need to try out for,” he said. “I think the most important thing is being in shape.”
Davis has had his moments in the league, but after 13 injury plagued season, this may be his last and final attempt at a graceful exit.
