Confirming what had been reported earlier in the week, the Sacramento Kings and Harrison Barnes have reportedly agreed to a four year, $85 million extension.
Some Kings news...— Sam Amick (@sam_amick) June 30, 2019
Source tells @TheAthletic that Sacramento will finalize a four-year, $85 million deal with Harrison Barnes today. The deal declines annually, accounting for just 14% of the cap in the fourth year.
We had previously speculated that Kings may have the deal escalate in order to maximize current cap space, but the Kings went to opposite route. A decreasing contract has become common for the Kings, and will help them maintain future flexibility.
