Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Earl Barron is expected to start against the Cavs on Saturday.

He has seen action in garbage time for the most part these days and the Suns probably won't give him many minutes tonight. Brandan Wright is a much better option.
Mar 7 - 6:57 PM
Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Suns sign F/C Earl Barron.

It's a 10-day deal for one of the training camp guys. Before playing in China, Barron put up a double-double in October, but he's likely just an emergency guy behind Brandan Wright and Alex Len.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Earl Barron has signed a deal with Shanxi of the Chinese Basketball Association.

Barron had been laying with the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League, but will now take his talents to Shanxi. He could join an NBA team after the Chinese season ends in February, but there's no reason for fantasy owners to monitor Barron's status going forward.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Suns waive F/C Earl Barron.

They're going to run and that's not exactly a style suitable for Barron. Anthony Tolliver is fitting right in and should get his fair share of treys in the rotation.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Earl Barron double-doubled with 10 points and 13 rebounds in an extended look on Monday against the Rockets.

Barron logged 24 minutes and along with Anthony Tolliver (10 points, six rebounds, three treys, one block, 30 minutes) they were the only players to play more than 21 minutes tonight. Given their body of work, neither of them is on the fantasy radar and the rest of the game was mostly meaningless in terms of assessing Suns fantasy values.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Former Heat big man Earl Barron will compete for a roster spot with the Suns during training camp.

Barron has seven years of NBA experience, most recently in 2012-13 as a member of the Knicks and Wizards. He's shot 37.5 percent in the league, which is absurd for a 7-footer, and it's doubtful that Phoenix will give him any guaranteed money.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Earl Barron will play in China with the Qingdao DoubleStar next season.

He was close to signing with the Knicks, but it seems Cole Aldrich got the nod and now has the inside track to make the team. Despite some big games here and there, Barron hasn't done much in his NBA career and might not be back stateside for a while.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Earl Barron's "top choice" is to sign with the Knicks.

Barron's representatives hope that New York will make an offer after Labor Day, but it's unclear whether the Knicks have any demand for a middling backup big man after signing Andrea Bargnani and Kenyon Martin this summer.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

The Knicks and Earl Barron have mutual interest in coming to terms on a contract.

The Knicks are looking for one more bench big and Barron played well in his only game with the Knicks last year, grabbing 18 boards to go with 11 points. He also averaged a double-double in New York back in the 2009-10 season in just seven games, so he's fared well in his brief time there. The 32-year-old big man played 11 games with the Wizards last year and won't have fantasy value to start the year.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Earl Barron started at center after being signed by the Knicks on Wednesday and blew up for 11 points, 18 rebounds and a block.

The Knicks big men are banged up, although it does sound like Tyson Chandler should be ready for Saturday's Game 1 against the Celtics. Barron's output tonight was a pleasant surprise, but it could have been a fluke against Atlanta's JV team. Quentin Richardson made his debut and hit just 1-of-11 shots for 10 points and five rebounds, while James White added 20 points for the Knicks. They rested all the starters tonight and we're not expecting much from these three going forward, unless the Knicks continue to deal with injury problems.

Knicks sign F/C Earl Barron.

Barron will take Rasheed Wallace's spot on the roster after Sheed retired on Wednesday morning.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

The Wizards waived PF/C Earl Barron on Saturday.

Barron was barely playing, especially with Nene on the court, and he was shooting 35.1 percent from the field with nearly as many turnovers (10) as combined assists, steals and blocks (13). He's not a fantasy option regardless of where he lands.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

Earl Barron started at power forward over Chris Singleton on Wednesday and hit 1-of-6 shots for two points, five rebounds and five fouls in 20 minutes of a loss to the Magic.

Barron is suddenly starting to get some run, and while it's become clear that Randy Wittman has no plans to start Kevin Seraphin any time soon, Barron is not a player worth owning in any leagues right now.

Earl Barron - F/C - Suns

The Wizards will start Earl Barron over Chris Singleton against the Magic on Wednesday night.

Coach Randy Wittman said the change was about getting the Wizards off to faster starts. Barron scored four points on 2-of-10 shooting with 14 rebounds and four blocks in 26 minutes Tuesday. If Barron manages to garner consistent minutes, he could be worth monitoring, but we'll have to wait and see.
