J.J. Barea is celebrating his championship with Dallas back in his native Puerto Rico. While celebrating in his hometown with his own championship parade, he was interviewed by a website called primerahora.com and discussed where he’d like to play:
“Obviously I prefer to stay in Dallas. The treatment I get in that city is incredible.
And if Barea were to sign with another team?
“But if I had to leave Dallas because he had an offer on the table astronomical that it could not refuse, or because Dallas does not compensate adequately, Barea said other teams to consider would be the Miami Heat, the Lakers, the New York Knicks.”
The likelihood of Cuban breaking up the championship squad is very unlikely, but stranger things have happened and with a pending lockout (and new CBA deal being worked on), who knows what the future holds for the Mavs and the rest of the league.
