That wouldn’t seem to make a ton of sense from a financial standpoint. After a rough second season that included a massive shooting slump, a fractured wrist and a nearly crippling back injury, McCaw didn’t find much of a market in restricted free agency. The Warriors’ guaranteed offer, it would appear, is the most lucrative available. But, reaffirmed by his Monday decision to let the qualifying offer expire, there’s something that’s becoming increasingly clear: This isn’t as much about money for McCaw as it is about opportunity. Sources indicate that both McCaw and his father, Jeff, who has become a vocal part of this process, believe a more expansive role is the best thing for his growth and eventual earning potential.

Jose Juan Barea wants to return to Dallas as coach

Long-time Dallas Mavericks guard J.J. Barea – as former coach Rick Carlisle has often noted the last connection to the franchise’s 2011 NBA championship – is ready to move from a playing career overseas to a position on the Mavs’ coaching staff that Carlisle just left behind. “For sure,” Barea said on Friday when DallasBasketball.com asked him about the idea of coming back to Dallas to be a part of the next coaching staff here. “That’s what I want.”

Barea has long been the subject of discussion in regard to joining the Mavs as a staffer or coach, in part because he was valuable in helping Luka Doncic make the off-the-court transition to America and the NBA. But the 36-year-old said on that retirement day, “I want to make sure everybody knows I want to play. Anything could happen this year, with the COVID, injuries. I might be back here in Dallas playing. I’ve seen it all in the NBA. I’ve seen some crazy stuff.”
“We are forever grateful for the contributions of every Spurs investor dating back to 1973. There are countless individuals who have impacted the organization and our community in so many ways over the last five decades,” said Peter J. Holt. “The Holt family is excited to continue working with all of our investors to provide the support, leadership and resources needed for the Spurs to continue to thrive in San Antonio.”
