J.J. Barea To The Knicks, Heat or Lakers?
 

 

J.J. Barea played a key role for the Mavericks during the playoffs and his first option is to re-sign with Dallas.

He did say, according to The Orange County Register, that will consider signing with the New York Knicks, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers, if he can't come to an agreement with the Mavericks.

Barea made $1,815,000 last season.

"It's nice to know should things fall through, Barea seems willing to look towards L.A. He would, basically by definition, represent an upgrade over last season's PG rotation of Derek Fisher and Steve Blake, but the Lakers don't have much flexibility in what they can offer (a mid-level), at least under current rules. Whether that would be enough, or if the Lakers would even be willing to use their entire exception on one player in a summer with a few needs to address is an open question. (Again, this a.ssumes something similar to the mid-level exists in the new CBA.)"

I think if it were to come down to MLE offers (assuming that Barea is even willing to accept an MLE) I'm sure being a Miami native he'll choose the Heat over the Lakers any day. But I don't think he's going anywhere. So far he's been stressing the fact that these choices are if and ONLY if negotiations with Dallas don't come through.

If Dallas is smart they'll do whatever they need to do to keeep JJ. He's a very good PG coming off the bench and he fits well with the Mavericks line-up and offense.

I'm not going to lie though, I'm hoping it doesn't work out with Dallas so he'll come to Miami. He would be a complete upgrade from Bibby and would be an a.sset coming off the bench for Chalmers or vise versa.

The only problem though is Locker-room egos. How good will team chemistry be when you throw someone in the mix who was a huge contributing factor behind you losing the finals?

i don't think he's leaving Dallas...but the Heat don't need to be using the MLE on him...a decent C would be better...

I wouldn't say we don't WANT him, we just don't NEED him though.

He should stay in Dallas if he can, it works for him.

I think that's more of a Phil Jackson preference... don't forget Chucky Atkins!

Do....
Not....
Want.

Can't stand that little annoying f*ggot. He sucks.

I've seen enough of him to know how average he'd be without Dirk. About 75% of his production = Dirk. High PnR, Dirk attracts double, Barea gets loose behind the defense. Easy baskets.

If he leaves he should go to New York where he'd still feast off Amare/D'Antoni ball.

Knicks don't really need him. Well they don't

And lakers don't need him. Andrew my might box him in his chest or some sh*t

Miami damn sure could tho
But I think he's a bust waiting to happen
I think he just had a good playoff run and next he won't show so much like he dis in the playoffs

LA or NY
Miami has Cole will find a cheaper backup or if they can trade Bosh for a whole bench of last year contracts and one decent backup guard they'll take him quick.

I'm a die hard Knicks fan...but we're not really good with point guards. We tend to ruin their careers.

See:

Charlie Ward
Raymond Felton

Can't think of any more...but Chauncey may be an exception. We'll see though.
