Orlando needs Matt Barnes … and now
Magic forward Matt Barnes is upset over his reduced minutes in the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics.
However, Barnes still wants to remain with the team.
He can opt out of the two-year contract he signed last summer, but said Monday night: "I want to come back."
Barnes played just 16 minutes in Game 3 on Friday night, but tallied 30 in Monday night’s overtime win in Game 4.
"I want to be out there to help my team. The money thing is whatever," he said. "More than anything, I just hate to watch from the bench, especially when we’re not playing hard and that’s what I bring to the court. "I’ve just been cheering. I hate it, hate it. It’s tough to watch."
