Barea said he left Minnesota with no regrets, and that he understood what the Wolves were trying to do. The Wolves and Barea agreed to a buyout that paid him a portion of the $4.5 million they owed him. Barea turned around and signed a deal with Dallas that paid him the veterans minimum. “I think we finished on good terms,” he said. “We communicated pretty good. They wanted to go another direction. We talked about it and came up with the decision and went from there.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

The Mavericks, according to numerous sources, are hoping to sign Barea when he clears waivers on Wednesday, although nobody would comment on the situation Monday. "We're not for sure," Nowitzki said. "We're going down there (to San Antonio) with the 15 guys we have. Anything else, we can talk about later." Dallas Morning News

The Timberwolves are expected to waive veteran guard J.J. Barea to reach their 15-man roster limit by Monday afternoon’s NBA deadline. The Wolves on Sunday worked to reach a buyout agreement on the remaining $4.5 million year on Barea’s contract, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation. Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Saunders also made clear that role probably would not include playing every game, which was an issue for a player who infamously sulked when he was removed from a game in the fourth quarter last season. “That’s what he can do,” Saunders said Friday night. “If he can accept a role, he can become a very valuable individual for you. Hopefully, guys know we’re going to play the guys who help us.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Q You signed Mo Williams. Is there a place for J.J. Barea on this team? Flip Saunders: Yes, there’s a place for J.J. You list our guys and every guy can make a case they do something the others don’t do, and J.J.’s the same way. You let these guys come in, they all compete and you keep the best team together. Last year in training camp, J.J. was our best player. We’ll see if he comes in at that same level. He’s got to understand I do certain things differently than what Rick did. There are certain things I won’t put up with that Rick maybe did a little bit, how guys act when they come out of games. That’s just not J.J., that’s any of these guys. Minneapolis Star-Tribune
