Barea: ‘It’s not looking good…in Dallas’
Free-agent point guard J.J. Barea said he believes he will be following Tyson Chandler and Caron Butler out of Dallas.
“It’s not looking good here in Dallas, I don’t think,” Barea said Tuesday night. “I’m disappointed. I wasn’t expecting this. Hopefully, it gets better.”
The defending champion Dallas Mavericks appear to be sticking to a plan that will get the franchise below the salary cap next summer for the first time in the Mark Cuban era. The goal is to create enough cap space to aggressively pursue one of the top three potential free agents, All-Star point guards Deron Williams and Chris Paul, and three-time defending defensive player of the year, center Dwight Howard.
