Harrison Barnes Reportedly Agrees to $94 Million Deal With the Mavs

by July 04, 2016

The dominoes are falling after Kevin Durant elected to join the Golden State Warriors.

Harrison Barnes will be a member of the Mavericks next season, and will be joined in Dallas by Andrew Bogut.

Barnes, a restricted free agent, has reportedly come to terms with the Mavs on a four-year, $94 million pact.

Per ESPN:

The Warriors and Mavs have agreed to a trade that will send Bogut into Dallas’ cap space, according to league sources.

 

The Mavs also are trying to complete their previously reported four-year, $94 million maximum deal with Harrison Barnes. Sources said that the Warriors will renounce their rights to Barnes as a restricted free agent with Durant heading to Golden State, meaning there will be no three-day waiting period while his previous team ponders whether to match the offer.

 

The Warriors need to shed Bogut’s $11 million salary to create cap space to sign Durant to a two-year, $54.3 million deal. Sources say the Warriors are inclined to send Bogut, a good friend of Barnes’, to a destination he likes.
