Barry set to sign with Spurs
San Antonio, TX (Sports Network) – Brent Barry has agreed to a contract with
the San Antonio Spurs.
According to the San Antonio Express News, Barry reached a verbal agreement
with the Spurs on Friday night on a four-year contract worth a little more
than $22 million.
Barry, who played the last five seasons in Seattle, averaged 10.8 points and
5.8 assists in 59 games for the SuperSonics last season.
The 6’6″ point guard was drafted in the first round (15th overall) in 1995 by
Denver, but his rights were traded immediately after the draft along with
Rodney Rogers to the Los Angeles Clippers for Randy Woods and the rights to
Antonio McDyess, the second overall pick of the draft.
The Clippers traded Barry to Miami during the 1997-98 season and he played the
following season for the Bulls before going to Seattle. In 595 NBA games,
Barry has averaged 10.7 points and 3.9 assists.
Barry is the son of Hall of Famer Rick Barry and has three brothers: Scooter,
a member of Kansas’ 1988 NCAA title team; Jon, who has played for the Bucks,
Hawks, Lakers, Warriors, Kings, Pistons and Nuggets; and Drew, who has spent
time with the Hawks, Sonics and Warriors.
