José Juan Barea (born June 26, 1984) is a Puerto Rican professional basketball player. He currently plays as a point guard for the National Basketball Association (NBA)'s Dallas Mavericks. Barea has played in the NBA, NBA Development League, NCAA and the BSN with Indios de Mayagüez and the Cangrejeros de Santurce. He participated in the 2006 NBA Draft but was undrafted, and he was subsequently signed by the Dallas Mavericks following his participation in the NBA Vegas Summer league, becoming the seventh Puerto Rican to play in the NBA. He was a member of the Puerto Rican team that won the gold medal in the 2006 and 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games.
