*It’s adios Clippers and Cavaliers for Baron Davis and Mo Williams respectively. That’s because the two point guards are switching teams in a last minute NBA trade announced today.
Specifically the Los Angeles Clippers traded point guard Baron Davis (pictured) to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Mo Williams, Jamario Moon, and draft picks.
The deal will save the Clippers money, while pairing rookie sensation Blake Griffin with Williams.
The Cavs, who now take on Davis’ rather large 3 year salary, made the trade for the draft picks included in the upcoming draft.
Meanwhile, in other NBA trade news, if you haven’t already heard, the Utah Jazz have agreed to deal All-Star point guard Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets in a trade that will send Derrick Favors(notes), Devin Harris(notes), and two first-round draft picks to Utah.
Williams says he found out he was traded to the Nets via ESPN’s “SportsCenter.” The deal was done so quietly that Williams said even his agent had not heard when he called for clarification.
