HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy reports that the Nets are among six teams looking at Earl Barron, the 29-year-old seven-footer who averaged 11.7 ppg and 11 rpg in seven games for the Knicks at the end of last season. Kennedy reports, without citing a source, that the Suns, Bulls, Clippers, Raptors, Hornets and Nets "have expressed interest." A Nets source denied to Al Iannazzone that the team expressed any interest in Barron.
Although the Nets have 15 players on their roster, Stephen Graham and Ben Uzoh have partially guaranteed deals. Sham Sports, which has the most detailed information on NBA salaries, reports that Graham's contract becomes fully guaranteed if he's not waived before December 1. Uzoh's contract becomes fully guaranteed on January 10, when all contracts are guaranteed for the remainder of the season. Both were inactive vs. Charlotte.
