Rumor: Baron on the Block?

Or will he still be here?

John Canzano of Oregon Live writes in wondering if Baron Davis is on the trading block despite what the Warriors front office is saying:

Someone in the front office with Golden State checked in to say, "We have absolutely no intentions of trading Baron (Davis) and he is absolutely not on the trading block."

They're reading the blog, see.

I checked around on the matter, and I've now heard from two NBA GMs, including one in the Western Conference, who say that Davis IS being shopped by the Warriors. Is this Golden State covering itself? Or are the GMs trying to throw out misinformation? Hmmm... stay tuned.

Admittedly, it will be near impossible to trade Baron due to his contract, but there are always teams who look at his potential and think, what if. In fact, I'm still hoping he comes into camp in tip-top shape, does not settle for those 3's and forced jumpers, and stays healthy the entire season. Okay that's a bit much, but man if he fulfilled his potential, we'd be a playoff team.

Do you think Baron is on the move? In return, what positions would you want to fill?

99% of rumors never happen, but 99% of them are fun to talk about!
