Harrison Barnes to decline $25 million option, become free agent

Harrison Barnes said last month that he was undecided about whether he wanted to opt into the final year of his contract with the Sacramento Kings, but the veteran swingman has decided to become a free agent.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Barnes is declining his $25.1 million player option for the 2019-20 season, though he is open to returning to the Kings on a new deal.

Barnes averaged 16.0 points and 4.9 rebounds per game in his time split between Sacramento and the Dallas Mavericks last season. Even if he can’t secure a contract worth $25 million per year, he should be able to land a deal that gives him much more long-term security.
