Dallas Mavericks: J.J. Barea in attendance for Game 1 of the World Series
Dallas Mavericks point guard J.J. Barea is set to become an unrestricted free agent and for the first time since 2011, it feels like he could sign with another team this offseason. Barea lost his backup point guard role to Jalen Brunson. Instead, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle used him as a change of pace option when the team needed a boost which limited him to 29 games this season.
Barea offered more than on-court production to the Mavericks. He was a leader in the locker room, sounding board for Luka Doncic, and one of the best teammates in the league. The Mavs would love to have him back in 2021, but the 36-year-old wants more playing time. It will be interesting to see how it shakes out this offseason.
Barea is enjoying time with his family right now. They took in a special event on Oct. 20. Let us take a closer look.

The 2020 MLB World Series kicked off on Tuesday evening with the Los Angeles Dodgers topping the Tampa Bay Rays on the back of a brilliant pitching performance from Clayton Kershaw. The series is taking place at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. It is just the second series of the season to have fans in attendance.
J.J. Barea was one of the supporters taking in Game 1. He posted a video on his Instagram story of him cheering on Dodgers second baseman and fellow Puerto Rican Kike Hernandez. It was awesome to see Barea taking in the historic event.
