Default Matt Barnes to Knicks ALMOST happened.......

.......but Woodson wasn't interested.

During the offseason, unrestricted free agent Matt Barnes was seriously being considered by the Knicks, according to the small forward's agent, Aaron Goodwin.

But Goodwin told ESPNNewYork.com on Wednesday that it didn't pan out, likely because Mike Woodson was not interested.

"Matt had a high interest in the Knicks, and Glen (Grunwald) and I spoke several times," Goodwin said. "We agreed that it was a position that was needed for the Knicks, especially defensively to advance. But in the end, I don't think the coach was truly on board."

Another questionable character guy.......rather have Ronnie Brewer.

Barnes to Clippers?
According to Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated, unrestricted free agent G/F Matt Barnes is close to signing with the Clippers.
It appears that the Lakers are set to move on without Barnes, who started several games for them last season at SF. He has shown stretches where he can get hot, but he is far too inconsistent to be relied upon in standard sized leagues. He would would be a low-risk, high-reward add that would replace the toughness and defensive mentality lost with the exit of free-agent forward Kenyon Martin, but he has also said he is talking to the Mavericks, Heat and Nets as well. Stay tuned.

Great addition to Clippers. We need defensive minded players who will happily deliver flagrant fouls to teams who rough up Griffin. I'd be glad to have him as the 3rd SF off the bench for minimum. Adds some grit and toughness to replace what we lost with Kmart+Evans.

Why doesn't Griffin himself take care of that?

You know that in professional sports it's always stupid for the star player to be the one retaliating and racking up suspensions and a bad rep with refs right? It's much more efficient to have goons. Although I'd LOVE for Griffin to elbow somebody in the face.

Default Re: Matt Barnes to Knicks ALMOST happened.......

played decent to bad his first year with LA, and played flat out terrible last season. His D is way overrated. For whatever reason people see him as a bad ass and decide to correlate that to good D. but truthfully, he gets beat off the dribble alot, rarely stays in front of his man, and commits stupid fouls. His 3 point shot was off all last season, and eventually he lost all his playing time to ebanks and ronron(who at the time was having his worst season as a pro) but i guess you can blame it on his injuries.

point being, if you guys want him as a 3rd or 4th string SF, more power to you. Just dont be surprised if his faux thug persona causes locker room tension.

He was really crappy on the Lakers, which was infuriating because there'd be some flashes of decent play. Then he'd miss a layup. Hopefully he'll flourish on the Clippers though.

All I want him for is flagrant fouls and scrappy D. Expecting NOTHING else.
