NEW YORK (AP) — A person with knowledge of the plans says point guard Baron Davis will sign with the New York Knicks.
ESPN.com first reported Davis’ intentions.
Davis is expected to sign Monday, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because there won’t be an announcement until the signing is official.
Davis was waived last week by the Cleveland Cavaliers and designated as their amnesty player. He was not claimed and chose the Knicks, who are seeking more backcourt depth after waiving Chauncey Billups with the amnesty clause. New York had already signed another veteran point guard, Mike Bibby.
It’s unknown when Davis will play, as he’s been sidelined all preseason by a bulging disc in his back.
