I'd love to have Barnes back.

I have little to no faith in Ebanks playing major minutes at the backup 3.

The Lakers have to win now, they don't have time to keep giving chances to kids who don't contribute much.

While I wouldn't mind to see Ebanks get a shot this season, Barnes makes sense for cheap.

Played with Dwight in Orlando and is also good friends with him. He's also played with Nash.

Before I wasn't big on bringing Barnes back bc of attitude and his disappearing act in big games, but this season there can't be any questions in our rotation.

Hill
Jamison
Barnes
Meeks
Blake

Not too bad

Barnes > Ebanks.

That being said there's better players available for the Veteran's Minimum.

C: Howard / Hill / Sacre
PF: Gasol / Jamison
SF: World Peace / Barnes / Ebanks
SG: Bryant / Meeks / Goudelock
PG: Nash / Blake / Duhon / Morris

Barnes would give the Lakers that 15th guy to run with. Sure would be nice.

I don't think we will bring him back. We didn't re-sign Ebanks for nothing makes no sense to re-sign him, then re-sign Barnes so what, Ebanks can sit on the bench and rot

Lakers have roster space and do need a 3rd string SF. Hell, Kobe and 'Tawn aren't gonna play SF. Devin wants to prove he can contribute then battle it out with Matt. Having Matt motivate Devin to play better. Would be the same thing Phil did with Jordan Farmar when they acquired Shannon.

They havent even given him a chance yet! He needs to be playing alongside Kobe to maximize his attributes. Especially now with NAsh & Howard cuz he can run the floor and give them effort plays that change tempo from Slow awkward MWP. He will come in handy vs the athletic wings in gm that are too quick for MWP

With very few serviceable SFs left on the market, I wouldn't be against bringing him back for cheap. Would have preferred the front office picking up someone else for the back-up SF position this summer, but I can't complain about this offseason.

Matt Barnes isn't a good one-on-one defender. He's good at playing the passing lanes and with help defense, but his one-on-one defense is overrated. He's more prone to fouling his man than he is actually stopping them on the defensive end. He's pesky, but he won't be locking anyone down. I can't remember the last time he actually did that despite being brought to the Lakers specifically for his defense.

Great hustle guy, but he leaves a lot to be desired in his actual play on both ends of the floor.

Yeah not sure why fans think he's a great defender.

He's average to below average in that category. He's good at getting under people's skin like Sasha used to.

Wouldn't mind Barnes for cheap, as many have already said. He brings toughness and hustle, and I'd prefer him over Ebanks. Plus him and Ebanks can motivate each other to be better by competing for the backup SF spot. But if we don't get him, I won't really break a sweat over it.
