Harrison Barnes of the Golden State Warriors is highly talented. However, the small forward player’s worth is still doubtful. Indeed, NBA rumors suggested that the Warriors is not willing to overpay him, and the Dallas Mavericks could propose him if he gets to free agency. Read On!
Barnes’ worth in the Golden State Warriors is uncertain even though he proved to be a very talented player. In fact, he proves to be the fourth best player of the team after Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Then, what might be the reason that Barnes could be traded? Well, according to Grantland, there is a huge possibility that Barnes might become the highest paid player of the Warriors, as he demands a higher salary. However, it seems that the team is not willing to overpay him.
Based on a report from YIBADA, the small forward player could be traded for a max deal. Barnes could demand an average of $23 million per season, if he becomes a free agency player, which would make his salary twice that of the salary of Steph Curry, last year’s most valuable player.
To avoid such a situation that could lead to disagreements among the Warriors’ fans, a trade has been proposed that could move Harrison Barnes and Brandon Rush for Justin Anderson and Raymond Felton of the Dallas Mavericks.
NBA rumors suggested that the Dallas Mavericks would definitely grab a talented player like Barnes if they get the chance.
Harrison Barnes might become too expensive even though he is important for the Golden State Warriors at this point. However, the team might not consider losing such a talented player for an unproven talent. On the other hand, Barnes could be traded in exchange for Justin Anderson of the Dallas Mavericks, if the chances of retaining him with the team are narrow.
