Baron and a #1 from the Clippers for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon.
Baron has $30MM left on his deal. Two years. Mo is $4.5MM a year cheaper. Moon is the difference, but he is an expiring contract.
To take on the cancerous (and old and decrepit) Baron Davis and $9MM in salary, the Cavs are getting the Clips' #1 (likely 7-11 in the draft). Why?
And, this trade reunites Baron with Byron Scott, whom Baron called a "dictator" when they last were together as player and coach in 2005.
This is one of the oddest deals I have ever seen. You trade for a WORSE player who has more mileage on him, is more often injured, is more expensive, and who hates your coach. You toss in a young guy who is a 8-10 minute a game guy.
That #1 better strike gold.
