Lakers Rumors: Matt Barnes Could Sign With Lakers Or Clippers Today

NBA: Preseason-Los Angeles Lakers at Los Angeles ClippersLost amid the Dwight Howard circus is the fact that the Lakers have been involved with just about every free agent shooter or perimeter player.

Mitch Kupchak has already extended an exploratory offer to Knicks free agent Chris Copeland, and it sounds like he’s been in pursuit of former Lakers reserve Matt Barnes as well.

Barnes was with the Lakers from 2010-12, but went to the Clippers last season and was a key player off the bench. Jared Zwerling of ESPN.com reported that Barnes is now choosing between the two tenants of Staples Center:

Barnes averaged 10.3 points last year and would be Metta World Peace’s primary back-up as the Lakers look to add perimeter players after the departure of Earl Clark.

While the numbers weren’t the greatest for Barnes during his tenure with the Lakers, he brought a tough-minded defensive mentality, something that was lacking all of last season.

However, the Lakers off-season remains in-flux until Howard makes his decision, but it sounds like they’re a finalist for Barnes’s services.

    Lakers should sign farmar and odom. That’s possible. All that other pie in the sky scenarios need to quit. Pau, Odom,MWP,Kobe, and nash that’s your starting five. With Kelly,Farmar,Hill, as your primary reserves.

    Dwight Howard is an idoit. He obviously cannot count. He left 30 million on the table!!! No heart, no brains, no offensive game, terrible from the charity stripe. Lakers should contact Greg Oden ASAP.

    The clippers suck!!!

    People D’antoni is a good coach. Laker shooters we’re wide open nearly every possession. They need guys who can knock down shots. Phil is greatest coach ever, but let’s be honest. Phil played himself!!! Not Jim Buss. He asked for way too much cheese, vacations on road trips, a percentage of the team etc. D’antoni would have at least have one ring if the phoenix suns would not have reacted to Robert Horry’s hard foul on steve nash. Phoenix was cleary best team in the league that year and would have crushed cav’s in the finals as the spurs did. I’m just saying…
