Looks like Barnes is getting the big payday he's been waiting for.
The Toronto Raptors and free-agent swingman Matt Barnes are working toward completing a contract that is scheduled to be finalized Tuesday, according to sources close to the process.
Various sources say it is for 2 years in the $9 to $10 million range.
Update: ESPN is reporting that the deal has hit a financial snag (but I would imagine it will get done one way or another).
In his place, the Celtics might be looking at ...Larry Hughes? Ok, as long as he'll take the vet minimum.
We'll have to see what other options are out there, but I'm sure Danny is looking into a ton of guys for the vet minimum.
