The Clippers can re-sign Barnes using his FA rights (up to 120% of his previous contract), or they can use part of the MLE to retain him.

Dan Woike reports that the Clippers are also contacting their other free agents, a list which could potentially include Lamar Odom, Chauncey Billups, Ryan Hollins, and Ronny Turiaf.
