So just how serious were the Clippers’ contingency plans if the diagnosis on Baron Davis’ sprained left ring finger came back negatively? Apparently, serious enough to have free agent guard Lindsey Hunter in for a workout this week.
“We worked him out and he looked great,” Clippers coach and general manager Mike Dunleavy said. “He’s in great shape, and a good veteran guy.”
Now that the Clippers have official word that Davis should only be out another week and doesn’t need surgery, it’s unlikely they’d sign Hunter, who won NBA championships with the Lakers in 2001-02 and Detroit in 2003-04.
For his career, Hunter has averaged 8.8 points, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals. He’s been a key reserve for Detroit since 2003.
