Matt Barnes is going to the Magic
Any worry of replacing Courtney Lee just went away as this is a steal for the Magic. Barnes put up 10 points and 5 rebounds for the Suns last year after a breakout year with the Warriors the year before. Barnes numbers wont be nearly as good as with the Suns but he will be just a valuable because he can spell Carter and Lewis off the bench.
He will strugle to get his minutes though.
This signing all but guarantees the JJ Redick is out of Orlando as any use Reddick may have had to the Magic just went out the window with Barnes on the team. Barnes will also cut into former Warriors teammate Mickael Pietrus’ minutes. Pietrus can play better defense then Barnes.
This signing proves the Suns are incompetent. Barnes was one of their best players last year and they just lost him for nothing.
