Default JJ Barea lists Lakers, Heat, and Knicks as teams he'd sign with

...If he can't work out a deal with the Mavs.

It just so happens that Barea listed the Lakers and Heat -- along with the New York Knicks -- as teams he would like to play for if things don't go as planned in negotiations with his first love -- the Mavs.

Nobody can have much confidence that Rodrigue Beaubois could slip into the backup point role after his recent second surgery on his left foot. The draft-night trade for Rudy Fernandez helps the backcourt but he's basically a 2-guard.

In the interview, Barea said he believes Sacramento, which traded Beno Udrih on draft night, is interested in signing him.

He also mentions that he'd probably play in Spain if there was an extended lockout.

Makes sense. He wants to go to a big-draw city or a contender. As long as Dallas is his first choice, I couldn't care less what his other options are.

Well, If he wants to play for a reasonable amount of money tell him to come to the Lakeshow. But, if he is trying to get a huge payday off his playoff performance then stay away. I am convinced that is never happening again.

Bet wifey wouldn't mind coming to Hollywood. Jack Nicholson should offer his help landing her some acting gigs.

You got to feel a bit sorry for the guy. Year after year players like him has been signing big contracts doing half what he has done. So when it is his time, nobody really got the money to pay him.

Maybe he just doesnt want to play against Bynum again? jk

He would be good fit for the Lakers.

Mavs will let him go if he gets a big free agwnt contract. Same way they did with Bass.

At best Barea will be a backup. And with Kidd's age, the Mavs can't afford to sign a backup PG to a big long term contract.

Well, that would fit with the Lakers' recent history of bringing in players who absolutely kill us either on the court or start altercations off it. Barea did the former, and Bynum tried to kill him.
