Source: Clippers no longer interested in Rockets guard Brent Barry

A Clippers source confirmed a report from the Houston Chronicle that said the Clippers were among three teams to have had talks with the Rockets for acquiring veteran guard Brent Barry, but that the team's interest is "dated."

The Clippers had talks earlier this summer with the Rockets, the source said, but their interest waned after acquiring backup point guard Sebastian Telfair, Craig Smith and Mark Madsen in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Quentin Richardson.

The Clippers had liked Barry's versatility and ability to play at point and shooting guard. The Rockets signed Barry in the 2008 off-season because of his playoff experience. Barry, who has one season left on his contract worth a reported $2.062 million, averaged 3.7 points and shot 40.7% in 56 games last season.
