Consider Matt Barnes


I was a HUGE supporter of Matt Barnes signing with the Suns last summer.  Unfortunately, he didn't have a fantastic season percentage wise.  He only shot 42% from the field and made some bonehead turnovers throughout the course of the year. 

 

But...

An article on azcentral.com reports that Gentry wants him back.  After all, he did average 10ppg which isn't bad (especially considering the Suns may lose Grant Hill and his solid production).  Barnes also had a knack for finding fastbreak opportunities.  How many full court passes did we see from him? Plenty!

 

His defense was also good enough to warrant resigning him.  I compare his D to that of ex-sun James Jones.  He's a good athletic rebounder who can block some shots and get in people's face. 

Naturally, Barnes will be looking for more than the vet minimum.  I think that if Hill goes elsewhere or the Suns can't nab Marion, that Barnes has to get resigned! Not for tons of money, but something around the 2mil range for 2 years may be able to keep him.

I've always thought that any player that hits a game winner deserves a shot to stick with their team.  Remember the game vs. the Thunder back in November? awesome!
