Report: Heat targeting PG J.J. Barea, PF Carlos Boozer
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(12:12 pm ET) According to reports, the Heat are on the verge of signing veteran point guard J.J. Barea to a backup role and are exploring the possibility of acquiring power forward Carlos Boozer, per the Palm Beach Post.
The Heat are crowded at guard, which may make Mario Chalmers the odd-man out given his $4.3 million salary. Barea averaged 7.5 points and 3.7 assists for the Mavericks last season.
Boozer could be viewed as a replacement for Chris Andersen. Boozer is not a strong defender, but did average 17.8 points last season for the Lakers.
J.J. Barea wants to stay with Mavericks
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) J.J. Barea is a free agent this offseason, but he made it clear that he wants to remain with the Mavericks.
"I want to. I want to and hopefully this time we make it work," per Mavs Moneyball. "I had a lot of fun this year. I enjoyed being back. It feels like home for me here in Dallas so hopefully I can come back and finish my career here for the next couple years."
Barea left the Mavericks in 2011, when he was a free agent, but he doesn't anticipate history repeating itself.
"It's going to be a little different," he said. "I think at that point I had to make a decision. This time I think it'll be a lot easier to keep me around."
New Mavericks starter J.J. Barea posts 17-13 line in Game 4
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Mavericks point guard J.J. Barea drew the start in Game 4 against the Rockets Sunday and scored 17 points on 7 of 15 shooting, including 2 of 6 shooting from 3-point range, while dishing out 13 assists in his team's 121-109 win.
Barea was in the lineup due to Rajon Rondo being sidelined indefinitely with a back injury and he shined in the starting opportunity, helping to stave off elimination in Dallas.
"We're going to fight," Barea said, per the Associated Press. "We're not going to quit. We've got to go to Houston, and we've got to bring it back to Dallas."
The Rockets missed 12 straight shots to open the second half, and the Mavericks were able to build up a 24-point lead behind the new starting point guard.
"We couldn’t get Barea stopped at all," Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. "Our coverages were really loose. And they just played harder than us. That is the bottom line. They played with more desperation. They played harder than we did. Bottom line is they deserved to win that game more than we did."
Game 5 is in Houston Tuesday.
Mavericks list Monta Ellis, J.J. Barea as probable Wednesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/1/15) The Mavericks are confident guards Monta Ellis and J.J. Barea will be available to play in Wednesday's game at Oklahoma City, reports the team's official website.
Ellis is dealing with a calf issue, while Barea is suffering from an ankle sprain, but both players are considered probable for the contest.
The Mavericks are 2 1/2-point underdogs
Mavericks' J.J. Barea (ankle) participates in Tuesday's practice
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Mavericks guard J.J. Barea was able to practice in full Tuesday, reports the team's official website.
Barea is dealing with an ankle injury, which caused him to miss the last four games. His status for Wednesday's game at Oklahoma City has not been determined.
|Timberwolves guard J.J. Barea will seeking a bounce-back campaign heading into the 2014-15 season. Barea logged 70-plus games for the fifth time in six seasons, but saw his role off the bench shrink, which caused his numbers to take a bit of a hit. In 2012-13, he averaged 11.3 points, 4.0 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 23.1 minutes. After averaging 10.2 field goal attempts in each of the previous two seasons, Barea was limited to only 8.3 shots per game in 2013-14. Barea appeared in 79 games last season and only started once. He averaged 8.4 points, 3.8 assists and 1.9 rebounds in 18.6 minutes. He shot 38.7 percent from the field, including 31.6 percent from downtown, and 79.0 percent from the free throw line. At this point, there's no reason to believe we will see any kind of improvement from Barea this season. At best, he's a late-round flyer.
