Santaella believes that Barea will be out on the court for one or two more seasons. His priority will be to return to the NBA. “José is not going to let his NBA chapter close like this. He has basketball left and I understand that he can play 15 to 18 minutes per high-level game. This season, his time on the court was productive. He did not play much because the team wanted to give young people more opportunities. I think some NBA team is going to offer him a one-year deal. In the worst case scenario, he would go to play in the ACB where there are teams that have asked for him. I imagine he is going to rest for a while and in November and December he will decide where he is going to play. I don’t see him retiring right now,” Santaella said.

Meanwhile, the Mavericks remain in a strong position to re-sign guard J.J. Barea, who rejoined the team last season on a veteran’s minimum deal. Barea, like Terry, was a vital cog on the championship team in 2011. Barea has other options, most notably with the Miami Heat. But a source said that the Mavericks believe it is trending in a good direction and that Barea could be set to sign for the cap-room exception of $2.8-million and likely would get at least a two-year deal, with the possibility of a three-year agreement with a player option for that third season.
