Barea is special. Not an atheletic freak or a lights out shooter, but has a high motor, basketball IQ, a combination of elusiveness and speed. Very hard to keep this guy out the paint. Whats cool about him is his work ethic. He was never a strong defended in college, but spent alot of years working on being pesky and breaking up plays with his lateral quickness. He's an underrated passer, and scoring is 2nd nature to him. Would be a big pick up for us, because he listens and wants to win and does anything to win. We're a slow team with not much passing, quickness and winning mentality. JJ is only 26 and is entering his prime.
People hate on him cause of his height and looks more like a Tennis player than NBAer, but he has continue to prove people wrong over and over again.

Barea pick and roll with Stoudemire would be deadly. Barea knows how to break down the defense and is a pretty good finisher at the rim, teams would have a nightmare chasing Barea around. Not only do they have to worry about Stat they have to worry about Melo on the outside JJ is the ideal fit plus he can knock down the 3.
