exactly. Yes, I believe that Barnes is better overall but the way Matt has played in the playoffs the last 2 years and even some of that isn't his fault (ankle injury) its time was give Ebanks that backup SF role and see what he can do. In a perfect world we do bring Matt back for the vet's minimum and he doesn't have a problem just sitting on the bench while Ebanks gets most if not all of the backup minutes.
Overall, if I had to bet on whether or not he is back with us I would say no.
