Matt Barnes Close to Signing With Clippers


Barnes doesn’t want to leave LA because that would mess up his reality show life and can’t have that.

According to Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated.

Sources say the 32-year-old is strongly leaning toward joining the other inhabitants of Staples Center, and a deal could be formalized later this week. Barnes turned down a more lucrative deal with Cleveland two summers ago to sign with the Lakers at the behest of Kobe Bryant, and it appears a similar superstar dynamic could be in play with the Clippers and Chris Paul.
