The NBA rumors are again taking on a Boston Celtics flavor. During a recent interview Los Angeles Lakers free agent small forward Matt Barnes let the world know that he is a free agent and talking to a few other teams besides the Lakers. One of the NBA teams rumored to be in the mix for Barnes services are the Boston Celtics.
I’ve always hated Barnes when the Celtics have played against him, which usually means he’s good. Boston would likely sign Barnes on the cheap and he would be brought on mainly for his defense and rebounding. He’ll also be able to spell both Green and Pierce at the small forward spot.
This tweet from Barnes might be another indicator he’s leaving LA for Boston.
Maaaaan y’all gonna be mad when you hear this
