Mavs announce waive Gal Mekel. Sets up return of Barea as '11 title team recreation continues. Who's next J-Kidd after long Mil losing skid?
Mavs just officially waived Gal Mekel, who they owe $1.76M through next season. Now just have to get JJ Barea to put pen to paper.
Mark Cuban confirms that Gal Mekel would be odd man out if J.J. Barea clears waivers and returns to Dallas.
¿Dónde jugará JJ Barea este año?. Fue cortado por Minnesota. Escuché que Dallas y Clippers tienen interés. También Lakers. Hay que esperar
So to answer many on my timeline - no Lakers cannot claim Barea or Bynum off waivers
LeBron-stopper J.J. Barea was waived by Minnesota & will hit free agency next week, per ESPN's report.
Wolves officially set roster at 15 men, announce Barea's release
Wolves announce waiver of JJ Barea
Still believe JJ Barea can be an effective player off the bench in this league. Just has to be in the right situation
Some non-Jazz NBA news: The Dallas Mavericks will sign point guard J.J. Barea and cut Gal Mekel, per a source.
Not that this means anything, but if Lakers were granted Disabled Player Exemption for Nash, Barea or Felton could fit into that slot
Wonder if a team with barely any salary would pluck Barea off waivers at 4.5? What's salary floor? All my googles and calculators is broke.
JJ Barea is in the final year of his deal with the Wolves and owed $4.51 million. If he clears waivers he'll be an unrestricted Free Agent.
The general belief is that if JJ Barea clears waivers - he'll re-sign in Dallas. Wolves have until 5pm Monday to reach a deal.
Not overly surprising the Wolves are trying to buyout JJ Barea, never really fit - with Mo Williams and Zach LaVine he's the odd guy out.
Remember Barea started as an undersized attacking "two" in the Finals.
Barea STRONG possibility here. But don't look at him as "3rd" point. Mavs will roll w/ multiple small looks w/ 2 lead guards.
Why does Barea want to go back to Dallas, where they have Ellis, Nelson, Harris, Felton & Mekel to handle the ball?
I'm stunned that the J.J. Barea contract ended up being a poor idea. Stunned.
After clearing waivers, JJ Barea is then hoping to re-sign with the Dallas Mavericks, who'll have to open a roster spot to make room for him
