BREAKING: Harrison Barnes Declines player option
Harrison Barnes of the Sacramento Kings has declined his $25.1 million player option and will become an unrestricted free agent, according to his agent Jeff Schwartz.
Kings and Barnes are potentially looking to strike a new deal this summer.
The 27-year-old started the season with the Dallas Mavericks before being traded to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Zach Randolph and Justin Jackson.
77 total games between Sacramento and Dallas last season, averaging 16.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. While his scoring declined after joining the Kings, Barnes was a more efficient shooter, knocking down 45.5 percent of his field goals and 40.8 percent of his threes in 28 contests
Barnes was originally selected No. 7 in the 2012 NBA Draft
