No, not professionally. He's still a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, but like some of our Howland era NBA early entrants, Baron Davis is looking to finish what he started, specifically his degree in history. From Ohio.com:
Davis said the thought of completing his degree became more important to him following the death of his grandmother, who always wanted him to go back and finish. At 32, he's finally going to do it.
Davis said he has about two years left to complete his degree.
''I'm not far, but I'm definitely not close,'' he joked. ''All the classes I'm signed up for are things I want to learn now. When you're in school, you're studying stuff wondering 'How am I going to use that in life' or 'What does that matter to me?' Then you get out in the world and you start traveling and history becomes one of the most important things. Now my brain is ready to receive that more than when I was 19 years old and I wanted to dribble [basketballs] all day.''
Classes begin in July, and Davis will be splitting his time between Cleveland and Los Angeles until then. He says his knee and back, which both hampered him after the Cavs acquired him in February, are feeling better. He looked fit and trim in his Indians jersey and said he's back to playing pickup games.
Davis' experience may give him a different perspective through which he can more fully appreciate the educational opportunity UCLA offers. Baron has always been a bit of an oddity among his NBA peers, dabbling in film (and not on the acting side), and whatever his motivation, it's clear that he is thinking about life after basketball and is priming himself to take advantage of that period of his life as well. Best of luck to Baron, and welcome (back) home.
