According to New York Times reporter Marc Stein, the Sacramento Kings hope to re-sign Harrison Barnes. The small forward declined his option with the team.

Yet, Stein said that the Kings intend to offer Barnes a four-year, $88 million deal. If he signs this deal, he would have an average salary of $22 million.

Barnes was traded by the Dallas Mavericks to the Kings on Feb. 7, 2019. In exchange for Barnes, the Mavericks acquired Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph.

Before the trade to the Kings, he made 49 appearances, including 49 starts with the Mavericks. He averaged 17.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.2 blocks in 32.3 minutes per game.

He spent two plus seasons with the Mavericks. He spent the first four seasons of his career with the Golden State Warriors.
