Barry headed to Spurs, Cassell to Boston

It appears the Mavs are out on Brent Barry. The word out of San Antonio is that the 3-point specialist is headed back to the Spurs, the team he’s been with since 2004. Barry, released recently by Seattle, had narrowed his choices to San Antonio, Dallas and Phoenix.

Barry can’t sign with the Spurs until March 21. The NBA mandates a 30-day waiting period before a free agent can re-join the team that traded him. Barry could have signed with another team immediately.

Barry lives in San Antonio and is expected to announce his intentions Friday.

Playoff-tested point guard Sam Cassell, bought out Thursday by the Clippers, is also on the Mavs’ wish list, but indications are that he’s going to Boston.

“He’s a good player and it was something that we definitely visited about,” Avery Johnson said. “Who knows what’s going to happen. If he changes his mind, we definitely have a spot available.”
