Baron Davis Still Pursuing NBA Comeback

Aug 15, 2016 10:54 AM

Baron Davis continues to pursue a comeback to the NBA.

“Nah, I’m trying to get back to the NBA,” Davis said when asked if he's preparing for one more season in the D-League. “The real thing.”

Davis hasn't played in the NBA for four seasons after suffering a torn ACL and MCL with the Knicks.

Davis played six games last season with the 76ers' D-League affiliate, averaging 12.8 points in 22 minutes per game. Davis has since been working out and playing in some Drew League games in hopes for a camp invite.

“It’s full circle. I came to The Drew with big dreams as a kid, and now I have a goal again,” Davis said. “I just feel like I have something left to give. When I don’t, I’ll hang it up and stay away for good. But right now there’s something there.”

Stackhouse coached the Raptors' Summer League team this year.
