The Los Angeles Lakers have a bunch of free agents this offseason, none of whom are really high priority other than Ramon Sessions (neither Jordan Hill nor Troy Murphy are big-time players they must bring back to their team). If there's anyone the Lakers might consider retaining, it's swing man Matt Barnes, who has proven to be a strong defender and a solid perimeter threat. Unfortunately, his three point shot deserted him, making him offensively useless for most of the playoffs.
With the New York Knicks potentially in a similar state of flux, Barnes could be a useful player to provide a solid backup defender or attacker.
Ex-Knick Matt Barnes could be intriguing FA for #Knicks. An asset off the bench, does a bit of everything. Not a given LA will re-sign him.— Jared Zwerling (@JaredZwerling) June 6, 2012
