Matt Barnes has heard the trade rumors, and spoke to former teammates Dwight Howard and Baron Davis about joining the Lakers.

"You know, I've been hearing [rumors about] Dwight," Barnes said. "I've been hearing [rumors about] Baron [Davis in the event of getting amnestied]. I've been hearing stuff a lot lately. I've talked to both of those guys and they wanna be here, so we'll see what happens.”

Howard can become a free agent next summer, while Davis has two years remaining on his contract and is likely to be waived by the Cavaliers.
