As usual, Adrian Wojnarowski broke the story.
Unless Cleveland raises multi-year offer that starts around $3.5M, Matt Barnes will sign a 1-year, $1.7M deal with Lakers, sources tell Y!
Damn it. I knew it though. The Lakers have a little bit of playing time to offer and can pay Barnes $600,000 more than the Celtics. LA made sense for him.
You have to admire Barnes for leaving money on the table when he’s never had a huge pay-day. But now that he’s on the Lakers, you also have to hate his guts.
On the plus side, at least I don’t have to keep writing about Matt freaking Barnes.
