Baron Davis' NBA career might not be officially over, but in the meantime he'll be hosting a television show through Ryan Seacrest Prods. on the newly launched Esquire Network, a spinoff of the old G4 channel.

According to Deadline.com, the working title of the program is How I Rock It and Davis will profile "athletes, musicians, celebrities, designers, influencers and street-style icons whose careers, lives and lifestyles are setting a stylish new standard for today’s modern man."

This wouldn't exactly be Davis' foray into on-screen entertainment; he's a member of the Screen Actors Guild and appeared in the 2012 movie That's My Boy with Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg, the 2004 movie The Cookout with Tim Meadows, Queen Latifah and Danny Glover and had a role in several shows on ABC including Lincoln Heights and The Forgotten.

Davis last played in the NBA in 2012 as a member of the New York Knicks. He went down with a season-ending ACL and MCL tear in a playoff game against the Miami Heat and has remained mum on his rehab. Last summer, it was announced that the two-time All-Star would take more of a mentorship role with the Knicks. He turns 34 years old in April and it's unclear whether he will be back with an NBA team.

The six-episode series will premiere this summer on the Esquire Network.
