Free-agent forward Harrison Barnes has verbally agreed to a four-year, $94 million deal with the Dallas Mavericks, ESPN’s Marc Stein reports.
Barnes, who entered free agency as a restricted free agent, was reportedly renounced by the Warriors in order to make room for Kevin Durant. Golden State also traded center Andrew Bogut and his $11 million cap hit to the Mavericks to make room for Durant’s deal.
Barnes, the No. 7 pick in the 2012 draft, has spent his entire four-year career with the Warriors. He averaged 11.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game last season, but is coming off a disappointing postseason that saw him shoot just 38.5% from the field.
Dallas was in need of wing help, losing Chandler Parsons in free agency.
