2014-15 Fantasy Basketball Outlook

Jose Barea enters his fourth season with the Timberwolves in an inconclusive role. Mo Williams signed with Minnesota to be the backup point guard, so the 30-year-old Puerto Rican will need to either beat Williams out for minutes or find a new role. As Ricky Rubio's principle...

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Barea is set to backup Ricky Rubio at point guard. While his totals from last year were nearly identical to the previous season (he averaged 11.3 ppg in both 2011-12 and 2012-13), he was somewhat inconsistent as he had 16 games where he scored five or less points. He also saw his assist-to-turnover ratio decline slightly. Barea can be an offensive spark plug off the bench and got playing time at shooting guard amid Minnesota's many injuries last season, but he may have a more limited backup point guard role this season with several new swingmen in the mix.

2012-13

It was a curious move when Minnesota signed Barea as a third point guard last summer as it seemed unlikely he'd have a major role. However, he provided needed depth with Ricky Rubio suffering a torn ACL and Luke Ridnour missing 13 games with an ankle injury. When Barea was healthy and in the lineup, he was capable of putting up strong numbers. For example, Barea averaged 16.8 ppg and 9.8 apg over the final 13 games with both Ricky Rubio and Luke Ridnour out with injuries. Health was an issue as he missed 25 games with thigh, ankle, calf and hamstring ailments. At 6-0 and 175 pounds, his slight build and attacking style makes him a continued injury risk. Still, he averaged a career-high 5.7 assists per game and could be the team's primary point guard until Ricky Rubio returns.

2011-12

The diminutive point guard proved to be a sparkplug for the Mavricks last season and even started a game in the NBA Finals. He then signed a four-year, $19 million contract with Minnesota in the offseason. Barea is a great ball handler and hustles on defense. He could be the backup point guard to Ricky Rubio in Minnesota and head coach Rick Adelman has even talked of using him at shooting guard. He's an average shooter and his 5-11 height will limit his upside, but he could see increased playing time with his new team.

2010-11

The Mavericks picked up the team option on Barea's contract for the 2010-11 season, which means he'll get some playing time-mostly as Jason Kidd's back-up. Unfortunately, Jason Kidd is really good and Rodrigue Beaubois is the heir apparent at the point for Dallas. Ultimately, that gives Barea little value.

2009-10

The diminutive point guard proved that despite his stature he belongs in the NBA. He notched a career-high in minutes (20 per game) and averaged 7.8 points and 3.4 assists while hitting several clutch shots late in games. Barea will play a similar role this season and could help in deeper leagues.

2008-09

After re-signing in the offseason, the third year point guard from Puerto Rico managed only 4.3 points per game when given the opportunity last season, and at 6-0 remains undersized.

2007-08

Barea spent much of last season in the NBDL, and there is debate over whether he will even earn a roster spot this year. However, the Northeastern product has found success in various summer leagues, especially given his ability to score and distribute the basketball. Still, if he even makes the Mavericks roster, look for him to be the last guard off the bench and receive only garbage time minutes.

2006-07

Barea is battling for the Mavericks' final roster spot, and should therefore not warrant much fantasy consideration, if he even makes the team at all.
