If Cleveland Cavaliers Use Amnesty Clause On Baron Davis, He Has Other NBA Options

Baron Davis is guaranteed roughly $27 million of the nearly $30 million left on his contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers. That said, ESPN's Marc Stein and Chad Ford wrote Monday that the team will probably use the "amnesty clause" expected to be in the NBA's new Collective Bargaining Agreement to wipe Davis off the books.

Apparently sources close to Davis's situation have made it clear that if he is released by the Cavs, the point guard already has a list of future destinations in mind. Surprisingly enough, none of the three are with the team LeBron James ditched Cleveland to play for last summer.

Davis' hometown Los Angeles Lakers and the New York Knicks, sources say, are the two teams he's always dreamed of playing for.

Davis also still has a good relationship with the Charlotte community, Bobcats coach Paul Silas and Bobcats assistant coach Stephen Silas, all of which would likewise make the Bobcats an option if Michael Jordan is interested. 

Now it just has to be determined if Davis or Antawn Jamison are the amnesty clause casualties.
