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?

Tim MacMahon

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.

Dwain Price

JJ Barea has cleared waivers and will sign with the #Mavs for $1.31 million. The Mavs will waive Gal Mekel to make room for Barea.

Jody Genessy

Yep. RT @Tim MacMahon: J.J. Barea rejoining Mavs on a vet-minimum deal and release of Gal Mekel will be official soon.

Dwain Price

#Mavs owner Mark Cuban said he talked to PG Gal Mekel for over an hour yesterday about the possibilities of JJ Barea joining the team.

Tim MacMahon

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

Dwain Price

When the #Mavs sign JJ Barea, no way they keep 5 point guards. So, Gal Mekel is the likely player to get traded or waived.

Gary Lee

He’s trying to rejoin the Mavs. RT @om_najj: @Gary Lee Lakers should sign jj barea when Twolves cut him

Eric Pincus

So to answer many on my timeline - no Lakers cannot claim Barea or Bynum off waivers

Kamenetzky Brothers

He is 30, so yes he is. AK RT @843Marquis: @Kamenetzky Brothers would j.j. barea be a good backup for the Lakers? He not too old

Jason Lieser

LeBron-stopper J.J. Barea was waived by Minnesota & will hit free agency next week, per ESPN's report.

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves officially set roster at 15 men, announce Barea's release

Eric Pincus

Wolves announce waiver of JJ Barea

Jon Krawczynski

Mavs tried to get Barea from Wolves last year, but teams couldn't agree on compensation. So as @Marc Stein said, Mavs make sense

Jon Krawczynski

Still believe JJ Barea can be an effective player off the bench in this league. Just has to be in the right situation

Ray Richardson

#Twolves' Flip Sanders on J.J. Barea buyout: "He did everything we asked. ... With him being third (point) guard, he wanted an opportunity."

Jody Genessy

Some non-Jazz NBA news: The Dallas Mavericks will sign point guard J.J. Barea and cut Gal Mekel, per a source.

Enric Corbella

Beat the morning rush-hour and be the first on your block to Wolves Daily Monday video and a farewell to JJ Barea strib.mn/1wBqfLM

Dwain Price

If the #Mavs somehow wind up with guard JJ Barea, a guard must go. And if you're follow the storyline, you already know who that will be.

Jerry Zgoda

Story up: Wolves will get to 15-man roster by Monday p.m. deadline by waiving/buying out Barea strib.mn/1t7l1H8

Jeff Wade

Not that this means anything, but if Lakers were granted Disabled Player Exemption for Nash, Barea or Felton could fit into that slot

Jeff Wade

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.

Dwain Price

Of course, if the #Mavs wind up with JJ Barea, that means they'll have to get rid of one of the 15 players on their current roster.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs are interested in guard JJ Barea, who may be waived or receive a buyout by the #Timberwolves on Monday.

Steve Kyler

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.

Steve Kyler

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.

Steve Kyler

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.

Jeff Wade

Remember Barea started as an undersized attacking "two" in the Finals.

Jeff Wade

Barea STRONG possibility here. But don't look at him as "3rd" point. Mavs will roll w/ multiple small looks w/ 2 lead guards.

John Schuhmann

Why does Barea want to go back to Dallas, where they have Ellis, Nelson, Harris, Felton & Mekel to handle the ball?

Trey Kerby

Now that JJ Barea is going back to Dallas, does @LeighEllis have to give his shorts back?

Tom Ziller

I'm stunned that the J.J. Barea contract ended up being a poor idea. Stunned.

Ray Richardson

Anticipated #Twolves roster move is: MT @Marc Stein: Minnesota is today finalizing buyout with veteran guard JJ Barea, say ESPN sources.

Marc Stein

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
