There has been considerable speculation this off-season regarding erstwhile Pacer free agent Dale Davis joining the Sonics' roster. His agent, Chubby Wells, even told David Locke that DD had narrowed his choices to Seattle and Detroit, a claim which I found to be bogus at best.

Well, here's a quote from Wells in the Detroit Free-Press on Sunday regarding the situation:

"Detroit's the front-runner," Wells said. "Everything is stuck right now as we wait for Michael Finley."

With Finley seemingly a lock to be headed for Miami (as the same article mentions), it certainly seems that the likelihood of Dale Davis wearing a Sonic jersey is, to borrow a famous line, somewhere between slim and none, and slim just left town.
