'Good shot' Rockets could trade guard Barry
The Rockets have been in talks with several teams about moving veteran
guard Brent Barry, according to several individuals with knowledge of
The most serious talks have been with the Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Though nothing appears imminent, there is a good chance the 6-7 Barry could be traded to create roster space before the start of camp Oct. 28. Rockets general manager Daryl Morey declined to comment, and Barry could not be reached for comment.
Barry, 37, has one more season, worth $2.062 million, left on the two-year contract he signed with the Rockets on July 10, 2008.
The Rockets signed Barry to be a playoff-tested veteran for a contending team, but with the injury to Yao Ming and with Tracy McGrady working his way back from microfracture surgery, they have signed rookies Jermaine Taylor and Chase Budinger at Barry’s positions.
