(Dallas Mavericks) J.J. Barea knows all too well that strong mutual interest in his return doesn’t guarantee that he’ll be back with the Dallas Mavericks next season.

“This time, I think it’ll be a lot easier to keep me around,” Barea said last week.

In other words, the Mavs won’t have to come close to matching a four-year, $18 million deal, like the one Barea signed the last time he tested free agency. But that doesn’t mean Barea, a productive backup guard and part-time starter at 30, would be willing to settle for the veteran’s minimum.

A source said Barea is hoping to sign a two- or three-year deal that would pay an annual salary in the $3 million range.
