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. Jun 29 - 8:15 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jun 19 - 11:09 PM

Despite his recent shooting slump, Harrison Barnes said that he will keep shooting with confidence in Game 7.

"The shots aren't going in, that's the fact of it," Barnes said. "But I'm going to keep shooting with confidence, get some shots up in between games, and see what happens in Game 7." He didn't hit a single shot in Game 6 and is a combined 2-of-22 from the field in his last two outings, but coach Steve Kerr expressed his confidence in Barnes after Thursday's loss. "But I'm really confident in Harrison," Kerr said. "He's going to start Sunday and he's still one of our key guys. I'm very confident that he'll come out and play well."
Jun 17 - 10:40 AM

Harrison Barnes was scoreless on his eight shots from the field on Thursday, adding two rebounds and one block.

You could say Harrison couldn't hit the broad side of a Barnes. He lost minutes to Leandro Barbosa for this game and could be losing money for what was supposed to be his big pay day this summer. He will probably start in Game 7, but he'll be on a very, very short leash.
Jun 16 - 11:54 PM

Harrison Barnes is planning to be aggressive shooting the ball in Game 6 on Thursday.

Barnes looked awful in going 2-of-14 from the field on Game 5 on Monday, but isn't planning on holding back in Game 6. "Obviously last game I didn't shoot it great, and coming up this next game, you're going to let it fly," Barnes said. The 24-year-old will see plenty of minutes on Thursday with Andrew Bogut out, so he should have plenty of opportunities make up for a poor Game 5.
Jun 16 - 9:24 AM

Harrison Barnes had a brutal Game 5 against the Cavs, making 2-of-14 from the field for five points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

Harry B giveth, and Harry B taketh away. After a huge Game 4, Barnes regressed in a big way, struggling in most facets of the game. Barnes played extended minutes at the five with Draymond Green suspended and Andrew Bogut (knee) getting hurt in the third quarter -- Barnes did see time at the five before the Bogut injury, too. He also didn't play great defense in this loss either. He needs to be better on Thursday.

According to Sporting News, the Warriors are expected to match any offers for Harrison Barnes this summer when he becomes a restricted free agent.

Warriors owner Joe Lacob has always said that he won't be afraid to spend money on a contender, so this report makes sense. Despite a quiet season, Barnes has proved his worth in the NBA Finals, averaging 12.5 points and 5.5 rebounds while shooting 51.3 percent from the field and 42.9 percent on 3-pointers. Teams such as the Celtics, Lakers, Suns and Mavericks could pursue him this summer and even offer him a max deal, but it's hard to imagine the Warriors breaking up their core if they win another title.
Jun 11 - 11:20 AM

Harrison Barnes scored 14 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

Make that money, Harry B. His 40 minutes were the most he's played in this postseason and he's now scored 12-plus points for consecutive games for the first time in these playoffs -- he had 18 on Wednesday. Barnes has been better on the glass lately with three on the offensive end tonight and his defense was better, too. After really struggling basically since December, Barnes is helping himself in contract negotiations this summer.
Jun 11 - 12:27 AM

Harrison Barnes hauled in eight rebounds on Wednesday to go along with 18 points, three assists, two three points and one turnover in 33 minutes of action.

Barnes shot 7-of-11 en route to his highest-scoring game of the 2016 playoffs, but his big game wasn't nearly enough as Golden State fell 120-90 in Cleveland. There's been plenty of speculation about Barnes' impending free agency and tonight's timely showcase will help his marketability, so the Warriors could be faced with a tough decision once the offers start rolling in. For now, however, they're simply focused on recovering from Wednesday's 30-point drubbing.
Jun 9 - 12:03 AM

Harrison Barnes hinted that money won't be the deciding factor in free agency this summer.

"You look at the Spurs, they’ve had guys that could have left multiple times," Barnes said. "Guys who could have commanded a lot more money, and almost 20 years later and five championships later, here are these guys. When you peel away the individual stats and the money that could be made, all of that kind of pales in comparison to championships. That’s what it’s all about." It's clear that the restricted free agent would like to re-sign with GSW, but a move away from the Warriors would likely be great for his fantasy value.
Jun 5 - 10:04 AM

Harrison Barnes said he would love to stay in Golden State next year.

"It's out of my control," Barnes said. "People say, 'Do you want to be here in Golden State?' A lot of it is, look, I love Golden State." After a promising November, Barnes did not have a great contract year following his ankle sprain on Nov. 27. If the Warriors do opt to make some changes with a big-name free agent, Barnes would likely be headed elsewhere.
