Real GM: Suns won't bring back Barnes

Quote:
The Suns don't appear to be interested in bringing free-agent small forward Matt Barnes back.

"I guess they're headed in a different direction," Barnes told the Arizona Republic. "It was a hectic year. I don't think anyone was at their full potential on the team with the coaching situation (Terry Porter's hiring and firing). After the season, Alvin Gentry told me he wanted me back and that I fit his style and he'd always wanted to coach me. Steve Kerr was honest and said they might not have too much money."

Barnes said that his agent, Aaron Goodwin, told him that the Cavaliers, Lakers (before the Ron Artest signing), Magic and Mavericks have showed interested in him.
I think he'd look very good in a Raptors uniform. It's too bad that we've got no money to spend.

This story from Paul Coro’s kind of interesting, Matt Barnes is one of the guys who the Raptors thought might fall through the cracks.

There will be others and we’ll endeavour to find out who they are.

Nice. I would love to have him here. He can shoot the rock and he is a tough player

If you look at all the FA out there at SG/SF and look at the teams that can't spend much if at all. I think bargains will be had. No way in hell all those players find the money they're looking for.

Barnes
Wafer
D. Jones
Greene
Daniels
Head
Carney
Mason
Vaughn
Dixon
Carter

I'm guessing we get a couple of these players on 1-2yr deals for little money.

If there's anyway to get him, BC should work it out.

I had him on my fantasy team and he was money
