on

Dallas Mavericks guard J.J. Barea has been hired as the head coach of Indios de Mayaguez in the Puerto Rican league for the remainder of the season, which runs through June 27.

“I didn’t know it was going to happen now, but I always wanted to coach later on when I finished playing,” Barea told ESPN. “This is my hometown team, where I played when I was getting started. I think it’s going to be a great experience for myself and see if I really like this and see what I learn and if it can help me out for the future.”
