Cavaliers Training Camp 2011: Baron Davis Sits Out Practice Again

The Cleveland Cavaliers have yet to use the amnesty clause to release point guard Baron Davis as many NBA observers speculated would happen by now.

The intrigue surrounding Davis continues as the Cavs practiced for the third day of their abbreviated training camp without the veteran point guard in the building. Davis has yet to practice with the Cavs due to tightness in his lower back, but he had been visible at the team's facilities on the first two days.

After practice concluded on Saturday, Davis took time to speak with the media and said all of the right things about appreciating the situation in Cleveland and the veteran role he could play with the young team. Play a backup role behind rookie Kyrie Irving? No problem.

Considering Davis has two years and $28 million left on his contract, it is hard to believe the Cleveland front office isn't trying to arrange some form of buyout, if not using the amnesty clause, while Davis is protecting his health to sell his talent to other teams following a release.
