Cleveland Cavaliers Free Agent Rumors: Baron Davis Not Yet Released

For now, Baron Davis is still with the Cleveland Cavaliers. It was originally thought that the Cavs would use their amnesty clause to get rid of the mercurial point guard, but according to Cleveland.com, he is still on the roster and is in town for the first day of training camp on Friday:

Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant said Friday that Davis is in town for the first day of training camp and that no decision has been made whether to waive him through the amnesty clause or another means.

If he does not get cut, Davis will be expected to be a mentor for rookie point guard Kyrie Irving. Current coach Byron Scott, however, feels differently. In the same article about Davis, Scott stated that he was the best possible mentor for the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.

Davis still has $28 million left on his contract, which he would be paid upon his release.
