Earl K. Sneed

Clear-path foul on J.J. Barea with 10:17 remaining. #DALvsMIN

Tim MacMahon

J.J. Barea throws the lowest lob in NBA history to Dirk, who finishes from a couple of feet below the rim.

Earl K. Sneed

J.J. Barea doin' J.J. Barea things... #DALvsMIN

Earl K. Sneed

One by one Minnesota players made their way over to say what's up to J.J. Barea in pregame. #DALvsMIN

Dwain Price

#Mavs G Devin Harris on the charges he and JJ Barea often takes: "We’re small guys. We can’t block shots, so we've got to do something."

Dwain Price

Prior to racking up 11 assists Thursday against the hapless #Sixers, JJ Barea had a TOTAL of 12 assists in the previous 5 games combined.

Dwain Price

JJ Barea had 11 assists tonight. The entire Philly club had 9.

Earl K. Sneed

55-point lead after that Barea layup... #DALvsPHI

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle sends out Barea, Crowder, Jefferson, Aminu and Smith to start the 4th. #DALvsPHI

Earl K. Sneed

Barea for three and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 92-82 inside of 5:45 left. #DALvsSAC

Mark Kreidler

Weird seeing @GuyHaberman at the free-throw line. #Barea

Earl K. Sneed

Barea air balls a shot, Tyson saves it and Crowder swishes a three. @Dallas Mavericks down 88-72 with 8:41 left. #DALvsMIA

Jason Lieser

James Ennis fearlessly backs JJ Barea down into the post. (Got his shot swatted from behind by Nowitzki though.)

Shandel Richardson

J.J. Barea enters the game. He is guarding LeBron in Cleveland.

Shandel Richardson

Tyson Chandler and J.J. Barea back on the Mavs. Feels like 2011 all over again.

Dwain Price

"They’re a great team, they play hard, they’re well-coached, they defend the same way." -- #Mavs guard JJ Barea on the #Heat

Zach Lowe

Probably merits suspension. Not so different from the Bynum/Barea foul that got Bynum 5 games. Hair less violent/less follow-through.

Earl K. Sneed

Unselfish play by Barea, getting the steal and feeding Aminu on the break. Dirk then sits with 7:34 remaining. He shouldn't have to return.

Michael Dugat

That was the kind of Barea shot that infuriated me.

Marcelo Godoy

Se viene el debut de JJ Barea esta temporada en la pantalla de #NBAXTNTENESPAÑOL a continuación DAL-POR com Medellín y Godoy

Marcelo Godoy

Orgullo boricua en la NBA JJ Barea esta noche en #NBAXTNTENESPAÑOL DAL-POR con las voces de Medellín y Godoy http://t.co/EV1ixQTe0A

Earl K. Sneed

Crazy end-to-end sequence that started with two blocks by Tyson, then a steal by Barea, ends with a corner three from Devin. Wow.

Earl K. Sneed

Barea with the triple and this is getting kind of ridiculous. @Dallas Mavericks are 8-of-12 from long range. #DALvsBOS

Earl K. Sneed

J.J. Barea still gets mad love every time he enters the game. #DALvsBOS

Tas Melas

Mark Cuban has said Dallas wants to emulate the Spurs, and they just made a Spursy move by signing a released player who will help in Barea.

Sean Highkin

Also: Slash RT @tarmosino: JJ Barea is like the Matt Flynn of basketball. Only good on one team.

Earl K. Sneed

Parsons & Tyson return with 6:49 left to play, joining Barea, Devin Harris & Monta Ellis. Three-guard lineup. #DALatNOP

Mark Followill

17 bench points for Dallas led by Harris with 7 and Barea has 6. Mavs lead in New Orleans 45-36 mid 2nd

Earl K. Sneed

6 pts off the bench for Barea now on 3-of-5 shooting. I think he's happy to be back in a Mavs uniform. #DALatNOP

Earl K. Sneed

It's just like old times with Dirk grabbing the rebound and J.J. Barea scoring in transition at the other end. #DALatNOP

David Aldridge

Others: Gal Mekel (cut by Mavs for JJ Barea), Toney Douglas, Jamaal Tinsley

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson on the return of Barea: "I walk in today and they got the giant and the little person back."

Tim MacMahon

Dirk giddy about having Tyson Chandler/J.J. Barea back. "I’m gonna call Peja & bring Brian Cardinal back and see if they can move somehow."

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk joking around on getting Barea back: "If we can bring Peja and Cardinal back, it'd be pretty good moves."

Paul Garcia

2 minutes left, Mavs are up 18 over Utah and about to pick up their first win. DAL with 7 players in double figures, JJ Barea playing w/ DAL

Earl K. Sneed

Somehow J.J. Barea, the shortest guy on the court, has 4 rebs to go with 4 pts. #DALvsUTA

Chema de Lucas

Los Mavs están celebrando la vuelta de JJ Barea con una buena ovación del público

Jody Genessy

Dallas fan favorite J.J. Barea and former Utah Jazz fan favorite Richard Jefferson are in the game for the Mavericks. #UTAatDAL

Aaron Falk

Huge cheer for Richard Jefferson as he checks in for Dallas. Or maybe it was for J.J. Barea's homecoming. So hard to tell.

Tim MacMahon

J.J. Barea checks into a standing ovation late in the first quarter.

Dwain Price

Barea comes in the game for the first time with 1:33 left in the 1st period. And he gets another loud ovation.

Earl K. Sneed

The crowd gives J.J. Barea a loud ovation as the entire @Dallas Mavericks roster is introduced. Then gets louder for Tyson, Parsons & Dirk.

Dwain Price

J.J. Barea just got a loud ovation during pregame introductions.

Dwain Price

"Tony Romo wasn’t drafted.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle, referring to J.J. Barea, who also went undrafted

Eric Pincus

Added J.J. Barea/took off Gal Mekel from @BBallInsiders Dallas Mavericks Team Salary basketballinsiders.com/dallas-maveric…

Eric Pincus

J.J. Barea's contract should pay him about $1.3 mil with the Mavs - slightly prorated cap hit of $909,859 @BBallInsiders

Chris Sheridan

The #Mavs are paying four players to not play for them after waiving Gal Mekel to make room for JJ Barea #NBA sheridanhoops.com/2014/06/30/dal…

Jody Genessy

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle was asked by a Dallas reporter how he feels about having J.J. Barea back. His in-depth answer: "Good."

Dwain Price

You ever wonder how much court time, if any, will J.J. Barea see in tonight's home opener against the #Jazz?

Dwain Price

J.J. Barea's buyout with the #Timberwolves was roughly $3.2 million.
