Wolves’ Barea Open to Trade with Mavericks?
When you suggest the possibility of going beyond the regular season in 2014, (J.J.) Barea perks up. It’s something he would like to do with the (Minnesota) Timberwolves. In spite of this, Barea doesn’t close the door on the (Dallas) Mavs, who at the beginning of the summer sounded as if they were trying to once again retain his services. He has strong rapport with the Dallas owner.
“It’s a great relationship with Mark Cuban. If they want to bring me back to Dallas, I am very [good] with it,” he said. “But I’m happy in Minnesota. They’re the ones that wanted me there, the ones that signed me for four years, so until they decide to trade me, I’m going to give them all my effort in the games.”
