Clippers and Matt Barnes agree to three-year, $11-million dealPosted by Inside Hoops
The Clippers continue to shape up their roster, this time agreeing to bring back one of their own free agents.
Free-agent Matt Barnes agreed Friday to a deal allowing the small forward to return to the team.
This caps a busy week for the Clippers after getting Chris Paul to agree to re-sign on Tuesday and doing a trade on Wednesday to acquire J.J. Redick from the Milwaukee Bucks and Jared Dudley from the Phoenix Suns.
Barnes will sign a three-year deal worth about $11 million, said NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the negotiations. The first two years of the contract will be guaranteed, the executives said…
The Clippers used part of the $5.1-million mid-level exception on Barnes, and it probably means they won’t be able to sign free-agent power forward Carl Landry, who walked away from a $4-million contract next season from the Golden State Warriors and was seeking at least that much in a new deal.
