Mavs release Barea as veteran guard seeks to continue career
The Dallas Mavericks released J.J. Barea on Thursday, turning loose the last piece of the franchise's 2011 championship team to give the veteran guard a chance to continue his playing career. Barea said he had heard from other organizations since news of his release broke, but declined to be specific. I might be back here in Dallas playing. Nelson said the Mavericks want to bring Barea back in another capacity when his playing career is over. “He was a huge part of that championship,” Nelson said.
