D-League guys

Jose Barea, in his second year, is eligible for the D-League, but he’s remained with the big club. Avery Johnson doesn’t have any immediate plans to send Barea down even though he’s been on the inactive roster lately.

“Right now keep practicing with the team because he’s our third point guard and there are times in practice when we need him here, especially with us having two guys in the developmental league,” Johnson said. “It’s been more beneficial for him to be here now. That can change down the road.”

Nick Fazekas and Moe Ager are both with the Tulsa 66ers.

“[Fazekas] and Ager are down there together now,” Johnson said. “They’re working hard and it’s one game at a time, one practice at a time. We hope that this experience can help them get better when they come back to us.”

Both aren’t expected up anytime soon.

“Both of those guys need to play and once they get a chance to play, we can get them on film and have an evaluation on what they need to continue to work on,” Johnson added.
