SACRAMENTO, CA - Matt Barnes found out early Tuesday morning his deal with the Toronto Raptors had fallen apart, putting the Sacramento native back on the NBA free agent market.
"I had a deal, I thought I was going to Toronto yesterday but part of the sign and trade fell through," Barnes told News10's Bryan May.
Barnes who played with Orlando last year was supposed to have a two-year 10 million dollar deal with the Raptors, but the Magic could not afford the contract to the make the trade happen.
However, the Del Campo High graduate still remains a hot commodity on the free-agent market and is still talking to several clubs.
"Cleveland is in there, Miami, the Lakers, and we are still talking to Toronto so we will see." said Barnes.
Meanwhile, Barnes is getting ready for his 2nd Annual Athletes versus Cancer Celebrity Golf Tournament. The event is this Saturday at the Woodcreek Golf Club in Roseville.
