Contract status: signed, two years, $5.7 million with team option through 2016
Position: Small forward
Harrison Barnes should be getting a clue: The Warriors are putting a lot of trust in him.
Although it looked like he would at least begin the season behind Dorell Wright on the depth chart, the Warriors proceeded to trade Wright to the 76ers for rights to Edin Bavcic (whose rights would be traded to the Hornets in the Jarrett Jack deal) and a $4.1 million trade exception (per CSN Philadelphia).
That sure makes it look like Harrison Barnes' first NBA regular-season game will start on the court and not on the bench.
His game should fit in nicely with the Warriors and he very well could make a run at the Rookie of the Year award.
Predicted stat line
15.2 PPG/4.9 RPG/1.6 APG/0.9 SPG/74 games played
