Andre Barrett - Despite being in the relative prime of his career, Barrett has yet to play anywhere this season. He was one of the D-League's better point guards last season, averaging 19/7 for the Idaho Stampede, yet he remains unsigned. Israeli team Maccabi Haifa are rumoured to be interested in his services, despite already having Americans Derrick Low, Sylvan Landesberg, Frank Robinson, Larry O'Bannon and Drew Houseman at guard.
Barrett has signed contracts with 9 different NBA teams before now, including 6 ten day contracts. Aged 28 and fresh from a good season, it's still possible that he could get another one.

- Andre Barrett - Barrett signed with the Cavaliers for training camp last season, and was a late cut. He then spent a couple of months on the shelf, exploring various European trade routes, before winding up in the D-League with the Idaho Stampede. Once there, Barrett averaged 19.3 points and 6.7 assists per game, including a 42/11 outing. He remains a talented ball handler and willing passer, who would probably have no trouble making it in the league if he was 6'2. But he still isn't.

- Andre Barrett
Barrett was back in the NBA this autumn when he joined the Cleveland Cavaliers for training camp. He then lost the role of inactive list ballhandler to Coby Karl, and would have lost it to Russell Robinson as well, God willing. After being released from there, Barrett has not signed elsewhere. It was rumoured that he might go to Napoli in Italy, but.......well, that's not happening any more. More on that Napoli story later.
