    News Baron Staying For 6-yrs

    Hornets give Davis six-year deal

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Associated Press


    NEW ORLEANS -- Baron Davis is moving to New Orleans with the Hornets after all.

    The star guard, who had said in recent weeks that he'd rather be traded than go with the team from Charlotte to its new home, accepted a six-year contract extension Monday.

    Bob Bass, Hornets vice president for basketball operations, said several teams had expressed interest in Davis since the team's second-leading scorer said he would rather play in Los Angeles, Chicago or New York next season.

    Bass said he rejected all offers and did not intend to deal Davis under any circumstances.

    Bass did not immediately return a phone call to his hotel room Monday but team spokesman Harold Kaufman confirmed the extension had been reached. He would not discuss financial terms.

    Davis' Los Angeles-based agent, Jerome Stanley, did not immediately return a call to his office.

    A Los Angeles native, Davis had been set to make $3.9 million next season, after which he would have been eligible to become a restricted free agent.

    Davis averaged 18.1 points and 8.5 assists during the regular season. In the playoffs he averaged 22.6 points, 7.9 assists and 7.0 rebounds.

    All:

    Please see sticky note atop the boards... No, you haven't lost your minds. Not yet anyway. I'm merging threads.

    Thanks to everyone for your understanding!

    Welcome aboard Baron Davis....finally!

    Man I'm pumped up! I was completely in favor of getting rid of him if he really didn't want to be here. Having said that, I'm sure glad he's sticking around! I can't wait to see him this fall!

    Not so fast guys, this could still be a sign and trade deal. I'll be happy once it is official.

    Well, it looks like we finally have our team. I'm glad all of that is behind us now and we can get ready for a great next year. It's going to be awesome. I'm very happy he is staying. I wasn't so sure for awhile while those other teams were inquiring about him, but now we've got a team ready for the championship.

    sign and trades have to be written into the contract. a player can't be traded after signing a contract.

    Did the AP jump the gun? They have now changed their story (not the same as that one above any longer) to say he was "offerred" an extension.
