Rumor: Cavs offering Barnes the most money

Posted By Nick Bove On July 19, 2010 @ 3:03 pm In General | 1 Comment

Since LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have signed with the Heat, the free agent market has seriously subsided. Now one of the biggest players available is Magic G/F Matt Barnes.

The Celtics have previously shown interest in the 6-foot-7 30-year-old, but over he past few days Barnes has played his cards close to the chest on many different teams.

NBA insider Alex Kennedy has tweeted that the Cavs have offered Barnes the most amount of money [3] out of all the interested teams, but Barnes may take less money to play with a contender.

In his seven-year career, Barnes has averaged 7.3 points, 1.7 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game. Barnes has said on his Twitter that he would reveal his decision for next season last Friday [4], but when more teams “jumped [into] the game,” Barnes decided to wait a few more days.
