J.J Barea's time in the NBA may have came to an end but the Puerto Rican is not ready to retire from professional basketball just yet.

The former Dallas Mavericks guard has signed a contract to play in Spain’s top division with Estudiantes from Madrid.

Barea, who played 14 NBA seasons (11 with Dallas and 3 with the Minnesota Timberwolves), averaged 8.9 points and 3.9 assists in 831 games.

He also played a big role in the Mavericks 2011 championship run over the Miami Heat

Barea was released by the organization prior to the season start on December 23rd, but Mark Cuban offered him a one-year deal during the offseason as a way so ay thank you.
