Knicks bolster backcourt, sign veteran guard Davis


Posted Dec 19 2011 12:33PM

GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) -- The New York Knicks have signed point guard Baron Davis, adding another piece to their backcourt.

Davis joined the Knicks after the Cleveland Cavaliers waived him last week and designated him as their amnesty player so his salary wouldn't count against their cap figure. The Knicks were looking to fortify their backcourt, where they are slated to start third-year Toney Douglas and second-year player Landry Fields.

It's unknown when Davis can play after sitting out all of preseason thus far with a back injury.

Davis played in 58 games last season, averaging 13.1 points and 6.7 assists for the Clippers and Cavaliers. The two-time All-Star has averaged 16.5 points and 7.3 assists since being drafted by the Charlotte Hornets with the No. 3 overall pick in the 1999 draft.
