Career in College

Davis played basketball and was a standout player even when he was in school.

This indicated that Davis was a sought-after athlete by numerous universities.

Some institutions that were interested in Baron included the University of Kansas, Georgia Tech University, the University of California, and Duke University.

But after careful consideration, Baron decided on the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

He made his decision based on the justification that it would enable him to remain close to his friends and family and play in their presence.


Baron also got into a small controversy regarding his choice of UCLA.

Davis used to operate a 1991 Chevy Blazer at the time. His sister gave it to him as a gift.

Baron’s sister worked for UCLA. It also turned out that his sister had purchased the vehicle from a member of Jim Harrick’s family. The men’s basketball staff at UCLA was coached by Jim Harrick.

Baron found the situation strange because it was said that his sister had bought the car in a bargain.

However, the controversy subsided after it was found that Baron’s sister had purchased the car at the listed blue-book price.

In 1997, Baron enrolled at UCLA without a problem. Naturally, Baron started setting records at UCLA too. He was honored with Pac-10 Freshman of the Year in 1998.

Further, in 1999, he made the Third Team All-America in his sophomore year. In Baron’s two years at the University of California, he scored 5.1 assists and 13.6 points for the Bruins.

Once, in his freshman year, when Baron returned home from a duck from an NCAA Tournament, Baron got into a minor accident.

He injured his knee, as a result, there was a tear in his anterior cruciate ligament.

However, Baron was quick to recover. He fully recovered in the next season. Further, he had also regained all of the speed, explosiveness, and quickness that he lost after being injured.

Professional Career

Although Baron started his career with Charlotte Hornets, he played for various teams during his long basketball career.

Charlotte Hornets

Baron was the third pick of the Charlotte Hornets in the 1999 NBA draft. During his time at the Charlotte Hornets, he set many outstanding records.

The American player scored nine points in his NBA debut and added five rebounds, two steals, and two assists. It was a 100-86 win over the Orlando Magic.

The first year at Charlotte wasn’t enriching. However, Baron achieved greater heights in the second year.

The elite player increased his averages in points, steals, assists, and minutes per game. As a result, he started all 82 games for the Charlotte Hornets.

Baron didn’t stay at the Charlotte Hornets, North Carolina, for long. He quickly was relocated to New Orleans Hornets in the summer of 2002.

However, in the inaugural season at New Hornets, Baron suffered multiple injuries. As a result, he had to limit himself to just 50 games.

Baron was, however, able to lead the Hornets back to the playoffs. The following season was no different.

Injuries did not leave the hold of Baron, and he was limited to only 67 games. As a result, the New Orleans Hornets were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs itself.

Baron stayed with the Hornets for five years. In all those seasons, the Hornets made the playoffs.

Golden State Warriors

Baron was traded to the Golden State Warriors in 2005.

After he moved to the team, New Orleans failed to make the playoffs for three consecutive years.

With Davis and star guard Jason Richardson, the trade formed one of the NBA’s most potent backcourts.

It also marked Baron’s return to California, a place he had longed to see since his days at UCLA.

The injuries didn’t leave Baron even during his days at the Warriors. The player suffered from knee soreness and underwent surgery.

However, Baron still led the Golden State Warriors to their first playoff appearance since 1994.

In 2008, Baron opted out of his contract with the Warriors.

Other Teams

After leaving the Golden State Warriors, Davis signed with the Los Angeles Clippers. It was a 5-year deal worth $65 million.

We can say that injuries never left Baron alone. In his first year with the Clippers, he had a series of injuries.

As a result, he could not perform well and was able to play only 65 games. This was a matter of utter disappointment.

Following Los Angeles Clippers, Baron then played for Cleveland Cavaliers in 2011. The trade led to the reunion between Baron and his former coach Byron Scott.

He didn’t stay long at the Cavaliers. On December 19, 2011, Baron signed a one-year contract with the New York Knicks.

Baron did not make his debut for the Knicks until February 2012. In his debut game, he scored a three-pointer along with an assist.


In 2012, during a game against the Miami Heat, Baron injured his right knee while dribbling down the court.

As a result, Baron was taken off the court on a stretcher.

The MRI revealed that Baron had a partial tear of the patellar tendon in his right knee.

Likewise, he had complete tears of the right MCL and ACL. Therefore, the basketball player had to undergo surgery.

The Delaware 87ers acquired Baron on March 2, 2016. He played six games for the team scoring 12.8 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.2 steals per game.

Spouse and Children

The couple didn’t want anyone prying too much into their personal lives.

As a result, they got married in secret with a small group of close relatives and friends.

Kingman Davis, Isabella and Baron’s first child, was born in 2014. Luke Alden Davis, the couple’s second child, was also born in 2016.

Their marriage was not able to endure. In June 2017, they divorced, citing irreconcilable differences.

Baron responded to her complaint after she filed it in June 2017, which was in August 2017. Four years were added to the case’s duration.

Isabelle requested that the court give her primary physical custody of the children and that she be paid monthly spousal support to pay her lawyer’s fees.

The basketball player is reportedly dating Laura Dern right now, according to various reports. The reports haven’t been verified, though.

The American actress and director Laura Dern is well known for playing Claire Dearing in Jurassic Park.
