J.J. Barea has spent his entire five-year career with the Dallas Mavericks and is now an unrestricted free agent. Barea was expecting to cash in with the Mavericks after his performance last year, but the Mavericks offered Barea a contract and it was a one-year deal. That offer was upsetting to Barea since he getting better offers from other teams:
According to NBA.com's David Aldridge, the New York Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolves are going after Barea. The Knicks have offered a two-year deal after they made some roster adjustments to free up salary cap space to be able to sign Barea.
The Timberwolves are interested but they have yet to make an offer to Barea.
