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.
He turned down a $25.1 million option on June 18th.
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.
The seventh overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft made 28 appearances with the Kings, including 28 starts. He averaged 14.3 points per game with 5.5 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.1 blocks in 33.9 minutes per game.
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.
