    Barnes reaches 2-year deal with Lakers

    By Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo! Sports

    Free-agent forward Matt Barnes has signed a two-year, $3.6 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

    The Lakers announced Thursday night Barnes had officially signed the contract. League sources said the deal will pay him $1.7 million next season and give him a player option for $1.9 million in 2011-12.

    The Cleveland Cavaliers had guaranteed $7 million over two years with a team option for a third season, but Barnes wanted more guaranteed money to sign with a non-championship contender. Cleveland refused to improve its offer and ultimately was willing to let Barnes go to a lower bidder.

    The Lakers also signed veteran center Theo Ratliff on Thursday.

    Barnes announced earlier in the week he was signing with the Toronto Raptors, but a sign-and-trade deal that would have paid him $9 million over two years fell apart.
I dunno, I think he should have gone for the money. What are the odds the Lakers will take another championship, anyway?

Hey, I thought that THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER 'KING' WINS ONE.

So where does Barnes get off calling the Cavs a non-championship-contender? Maybe the Heat will miss the playoffs, too.

Does this mean that Luke Walton moves to the end of the bench?
