February 20, 2006
LOS ANGELES (Ticker) - Vin Baker is back in the NBA.

Baker, whose best days are well behind him, signed with the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night.

Terms were not disclosed.

A four-time All-Star whose promising career was derailed by alcoholism and weight problems, Baker was released by Houston during training camp. The power forward has not been a productive player since splitting the 2003-04 season with Boston and New York.

Baker, 34, has career averages of 15.1 points and 7.5 rebounds in 783 games. He played in a combined 27 games for the Knicks and Rockets last season, scoring a total of 38 points.

The move to Los Angeles reunites Baker with coach Mike Dunleavy, who drafted him eighth overall in 1993 for Milwaukee. Baker enjoyed his best season under Dunleavy, averaging a career-high 21.1 points in 1996.

Baker also has played for Seattle during his 12-year career.
