Report: Heat targeting PG J.J. Barea, PF Carlos Boozer


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) 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

J.J. Barea wants to stay with Mavericks


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) 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
(4/27/2015) 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.

"I only play these minutes in the summer, and it’s a quick stint with my Puerto Rico team,” he said. "But your body has to get used to more minutes. You have to take care of your body even more.
