Mark Cuban said that he believes Harrison Barnes can develop into a go-to guy on offense for the Mavericks.
"You're going to see a lot more to his game than you've seen in the past," Cuban said. "I think he can do a lot more than he's been asked to do, and that's what we expect to see. ... Maybe not first year, but I think he's going to grow into [the role of go-to guy]." The important part of this quote is that even Cuban acknowledges it's unlikely Barnes can immediately step into a feature role during his first year with the team, and we don't see him being much more than a mid-round guy in Dallas.

Owner Mark Cuban said Harrison Barnes's game will "expand significantly" with the Mavs.

"He's going to get asked to do a whole lot more with us," Cuban said. If Cuban is basing these comments off the playoffs, that doesn't mean much. That said, Barnes is already working with coach Rick Carlisle to add more to his game. Last season, only 8.7 percent of Barnes' offensive plays were in isolation and just 4.4 percent as a pick-and-roll ball handler (Synergy), so he'll be in uncharted waters. As bad as he was, there is still some upside here.

Harrison Barnes said that he's excited about having a larger role in Dallas.

"I'm more so excited about growing into that," Barnes said. "It's not one of those things where I'm expected to come out there every night and be the guy, but I'm going to be one of the major guys on the team. My job is to go out there and perform." He was the fourth option on offense in Golden State, but now the 24-year-old forward will be a go-to player on offense for the Mavs which should make him an intriguing mid-round pick in standard leagues.

The Dallas Mavericks have officially signed Harrison Barnes.

This news comes as no surprise as the Warriors got their big fish in Kevin Durant, but the signing now becomes official. Barnes will see an increased usage rate in Dallas and will be worth a mid-round pick in fantasy drafts.
Jul 7 - 1:03 PM

The Mavericks and Harrison Barnes have reportedly agreed on a four-year, $94 million deal.

The Mavs are becoming Golden State East with a max deal on Barnes. The 24-year-old Barnes will now see a big uptick in usage as one of the main weapons for coach Rick Carlisle. Interestingly, Barnes only had a 20.0 usage rate in his minutes without Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry last year, so this will be foreign territory for him. Expect him to get minutes in the mid 30s and score in the upper teens. He hasn't been a big-time producer in non-scoring stats, so he's more of a mid-round target in standard leagues.

Updating a previous item, the Warriors are expected to renounce the rights to Harrison Barnes, making him an unrestricted free agent.

With Kevin Durant now on board, there is no reason for Golden State to hold out on the Barnes front. After pulling the qualifying offer and renouncing his rights, the Warriors will have cleared the way for Barnes to sign a maximum four-year, $94-plus million deal in Dallas.
Jul 4 - 12:53 PM

ESPN's Marc Stein and Tim MacMahon report that the Mavericks plan to proceed with a max offer sheet for restricted free agent Harrison Barnes.

Dallas will get their man after Kevin Durant's decision to spurn OKC for Golden State. Per Stein, the offer will be a four-year, $94 million deal that the Warriors will not match. For the Mavs, Barnes will replace Chandler Parsons in the offense and stands to inherit a significantly larger role than he ever enjoyed with the Warriors. We're going to have to see a lot more from Barnes before buying into the idea he can operate as a primary option on a good team, but he'll certainly have the opportunity in Dallas.
Jul 4 - 12:06 PM

The Mavericks intend to sign restricted free agent Harrison Barnes to a four-year max offer sheet on July 7.

If the Warriors aren't able to bring Kevin Durant on board, they are almost certainly going to match here. While everyone kills Barnes for his awful finish, he did turn in a terrific 60.4 true shooting percentage on a 17.6 usage rate during his first 17 games last season. He also just turned 24 in May, so his next contract will be during his prime.
Jul 2 - 8:04 PM

According to NBA reporter Keith Pompey, the Warriors intend to match any offer for Harrison Barnes.

Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported the same thing early Friday morning, which means the only way Barnes leaves is if the Warriors are able to lure Kevin Durant to Golden State. Regardless, don't be surprised if a team such as the 76ers puts in a massive offer for Barnes to see if the Warriors are truly committed to him.
Jul 1 - 9:48 AM

The Warriors have officially extended a qualifying offer to Harrison Barnes, making him a restricted free agent.

This was a mere formality, and the real question is whether Golden State will match a potentially over-sized offer sheet from another team. The Warriors will also pursue free agent Kevin Durant on July 1, so the timing of Durant's decision looms large over Barnes' contract situation. The 76ers reportedly want to be "serious suitors" for Barnes this offseason, and plenty more teams will be vying for his services.

The 76ers reportedly plan to be "serious suitors" for Harrison Barnes during free agency.

Barnes will be a restricted free agent this offseason, so the Warriors will be able to match any offer he signs on the open market, but Philly could potentially pull him away from the Oakland franchise with a poison pill kind of contract. Barnes' preference would be to remain in Golden State, but he'd have much more opportunity to produce in Philly.
Jun 28 - 4:01 PM

Harrison Barnes said that he would like to re-sign with the Warriors as a restricted free agent this summer.

Barnes also addressed the rumors that Kevin Durant could wind up in Golden State via free agency, which would essentially conclude Barnes' days with the Dubs: "Oh man, that’s part of the business. [Durant's] a great player. If that’s the move they want to make, you know, hopefully, it works out... It’s always something, right?" The Warriors will have 72 hours to match any offer Barnes signs on the open market, but he'll be a low priority for the squad with the team going full bore after Durant.
Jun 28 - 2:47 PM

Harrison Barnes has made the Team USA roster for the Rio Olympics.

He had a disappointing 2015-16 season, but this should be a great learning experience for the 24-year-old forward. The Warriors have been heavily linked with Kevin Durant and Nicolas Batum this summer, so Barnes' future with the franchise is still up in the air. Don't be surprised if a team offers him a max contract this summer with the salary cap rising to $94 million.
Jun 25 - 9:56 AM

Harrison Barnes said he's yet to give much thought to his upcoming free agency this summer.

Barnes will hit the market as an unrestricted free agent this summer and is expected to cash in despite a lackluster NBA Finals. "I haven’t put a lot of thought into it," Barnes said when asked about free agency. While the 24-year-old could end up back in Golden State after passing on a four-year, $64 million offer before the season, he's more likely to be playing for a new team next season and will see his fantasy value balloon if given the opportunity to shoulder more of the load.
Jun 21 - 10:11 AM

Harrison Barnes finished the Warriors' Game 7 loss on Sunday with 10 points on 3-of-10 shooting, two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes.

Barnes' play has been scrutinized throughout the postseason, thanks largely to his impending free agency, and he did himself few favors during the Finals. He averaged just 9.3 points on 35.2 percent shooting in seven games vs. the Cavs, but will still earn a huge payday this summer -- the only question is whether it'll come from the Warriors or another franchise.
