BREAKING NEWS: Clippers Send Baron Davis to Cleveland for Mo Williams

According to Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports the Los Angeles Clippers have traded guard Baron Davis to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Mo Williams. The rest of the trade includes a 2011 first round pick that will go from Los Angeles to Cleveland and will bring Jamario Moon to the Clippers.

Obviously this trade comes as a bit of a surprise, but it appears to be a salary dump for the Clippers. Not only do they lose Davis’ contract, but now Sterling won’t have to pay the salary of a potential salary player in this summer’s draft. This will come in handy with a potential lockout looming at the end of this season.

Davis spent a few seasons with the Clippers, but arguably his best pass as a member of Los Angeles came this past weekend at the Slam Dunk Contest:
