Cleveland Cavaliers Using Amnesty Clause On Baron Davis No Sure Thing

The Cleveland Cavaliers have an amnesty clause to use thanks to the new collective bargaining agreement with Baron Davis being the mostly likely option to have his salary cleared from the books. Earlier Thursday it was even reported that the Cavaliers had decided on that option, but the latest reports indicate that Davis could remain on the roster.

The Cavs have not made a decision on whether to use the amnesty clause on Baron Davis, sources told ESPN's Brian Windhorst. The report goes directly against what Yahoo! Sports counterpart Marc Spears reported earlier in the day, but considering Windhorst was previously a beat writer for the Cavs, it makes sense that he would still have sources in the city.

The Cavs could also use the amnesty clause on Antawn Jamison as he's owed $15 million this season -- just over one million more than Davis -- but considering Davis has an extra season on his contract and the Cavs have three point guards on the roster without him, it would seem he would be the wiser cut from the books.
