FORMER NBA player Baron Davis is making headlines again, however this time it's not because of his latest highlight-reel play.
Eight years since he last stepped foot on the NBA hardwood, Davis and rapper Master P are in negotiations to acquire Reebok from Adidas.
Who is Baron Davis?
Baron Davis, 41, is a former NBA player and a current studio analyst for The NBA on TNT.
Davis was a two-time NBA All-Star with the Charlotte Hornets in 2002 and the New Orleans Hornets in 2004, after the team relocated to New Orleans during the summer of 2002.
Davis played for five teams throughout his 13-year career, including the Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers and New York Knicks.
On May 6, 2012, during Game 4 in the first round of the playoffs involving the Knicks and the Miami Heat, Davis injured his right knee while dribbling down the court.
He underwent surgery after an MRI revealed a partial tear of the patellar tendon in his right knee and complete tears of the right ACL and MCL.
That would be his last game in the league.
On June 22, 2018, Davis made his debut for Three's Company of Ice Cube's The Big3 League.
