    Default J.J. Barea would consider the Knicks

    I wouldn't spend the money on him. I like him, but yeah, I don't think we need him, especially because of us drafting a guard.

    Hopefully he stays with the Mavs. I definitely don't want to see a player I like go to the Heat.

    Barea may be 5"11 but he brings a lot of game to the court. He plays like he's 6"6.

    He's been playing mostly combo guard for Dallas, and thats not even his real position. He's a straight up CP3 type point guard. I see him averaging 15 and 9 in this system easily with his ability to work the pick and roll, his foot speed and footwork and would be a huge upgrade for us at point guard. His defense has gotten ALOT better and has mastered the flop. Signing this guy would be nothing but a position move and is one of the best free agent PG's out there.

    His attitude breathes winning, and thats what we need. A guy with leadership qualities, team-first-guy and willing to do anything to win.

    I've been followed JJ since he was in High School and people ALWAYS say the same thing.

    "he's too small"
    "not worth a glance"

    He's continue to doubt people over and over. He's gotten better every season, on some Steve Nash type progression.

    Will he ever be an elite guard? No, But I see him having 3-4 great seasons especially under this system or any system like the Lakers, Heat or Dallas where he'll be a starter.

    For the right $ I'll take him. He's battle tested.

    Please remove that Fields sig. 1.7pts in the playoffs have left a bad taste.

    Yea, old sign. Fields lost his swag once Melo got on the team. Which is why I was never TOO crazy about the trade.

    I wanna know about Jort... the White dude from Kentucy

    Heard he has an attitude we could use on one hand, but he isn't nba ready on the other.

    What's the concensus?

    Barea is a specialist and I don't ever see him being a starter. He's great at messing up the opposing team's defense with his speed and handling, but only for stretches. He's basically the perfect guy to bring off the bench to inject energy and instantly change the game.

    Nate could have been the same or better type of player had he just controlled himself and matured his game a little.

    A specialist is one dimensional. JJ brings a lot to the floor with his penetration, passing, flopping, and scoring.

    He started for Dallas for a while in the regular season and started half of the NBA Finals.

    Starting for an elite team in the regular season and Finals with J-Kidd and Terry in the backcourt, I def see him getting 24-28 minutes on a lot of teams in the NBA, especially with his progression that cannot be denied if you've been following JJ Barea the past 3 seasons.

    Chauncey can be our change up, and JJ can be our fastball. I wouldn't mind having those two run the offense and let Douglas do what he does best, play off the ball.

    well said brother, watching this dude in the playoffs was crazy i realized then that we need a guy like him in NY. he's tough- knew it the moment he took that cheapshot from bynum, while still finishing the and-1 and getting right back up. everytime i envision him now i see that moment, and him blowing into the lane past unsuspecting heat defenders. left me marveled and i want em on our squad

    ideal offseason add him, dalembert, reup shawne williams, and another bench player or 2 and were set for a deep run.
