Knicks Free Agency Rumors 2011: Baron Davis Wants To Join Knicks, According To Report

The New York Knicks' starting front line is an exclamation point. The rest of the roster is a question mark. Baron Davis could be both.

The guard, who was recently waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers using the amnesty clause, reportedly wants to sign with the Knicks if he clears waivers. Sources told Sheridan Hoops' Moke Hamilton that the Knicks are Davis' top choice.

Davis comes with health issues that will delay his return to the court, potentially for as long as three months. But sources told Hamilton some reports have been exaggerated and Davis' injured back could be healthy enough for him to resume basketball action in two weeks.

If the Knicks do sign Davis, it wouldn't make Amare Stoudemire overly thrilled. The star power forward told Newsday that Davis' health issues should keep the Knicks from pursuing him.

"This guy's out for eight to 10 weeks, he's not our concern at all,'' Stoudemire said of Davis, who was waived by the Cavaliers on Wednesday. "We can't do anything about his injury. Right now we can't afford to have any setbacks. We have a positive thing going. We feel great about our guys. Everybody's healthy, so we've just got to keep it going.''
