Barnes stays with Kings for four years, $85 million

By  | 

SACRAMENTO, CA (AP) - A person with knowledge of the negotiations says Harrison Barnes has told the Sacramento Kings that he is agreeing to stay with them on a four-year deal worth about $85 million.

Barnes had made his mind up earlier in the summer that he wanted to stay with the Kings and it was merely a matter of working out figures, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press Sunday on condition of anonymity Sunday because the contract cannot be signed until the NBA moratorium ends Saturday.

The 27-year-old Barnes was traded to Sacramento by Dallas in February. He's a career 13.6 point-per-game scorer.
