Nazr Mohammed mulling retirement

So, if I’m really being honest with myself, I want to play basketball, but if I had to sign today or tomorrow, the answer would be “No!!” I look at it like this: I’m not willing to play the role that I’ll be needed for right now, which is to provide veteran leadership, a locker room presence, insurance in case someone gets hurt, etc. In a few months, if the right team that has an identity and a need for what I bring calls me, then maybe. Rosters are full and everybody is trying to figure out what type of team they want to be. I’ve watched training camp practices on NBA TV and I don’t have a desire to go through that right now. I don’t think I need to be on a roster – and go through pre-season – for a team that doesn’t quite need me yet, doesn’t have an identity or know what they are going to be in the future. I have an identity and I know what I bring to a team. I’d rather sit back and enjoy my family and see my kids off to school every morning than sign with a team that has so many unknowns.

Peace prevailed between the two Friday but Barnes now is 3-0 against Fisher — two Memphis victories and triumphant in the brawl. “I get booed everywhere,’’ Barnes said. “I don’t mind it I enjoy. It means you’re doing something. They don’t boo you if you’re not doing anything. They’re booing if you’re doing something right which is what an away crowd is supposed to do. It’s what they’re here to do and they do a good job if it.’’
