Golden State Warriors starting small forward Harrison Barnes will soon become a restricted free agent, and he is expected to attract interest from numerous teams this summer. Barnes' play in the 2016 NBA Finals has only cemented him as one of the biggest prizes this summer, averaging 13.0 points and 5.7 rebounds per 36 minutes in the championship series according to Basketball-Reference. His efficiency has also been impressive, as Barnes is shooting 51.3 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from behind the arc versus the Cleveland Cavaliers.
With the Warriors likely to win the championship, Golden State seems primed to re-sign Barnes. He is familiar with the team and the coaching staff, and knows exactly what to expect in terms of his role with the Warriors. Golden State also gives him the best chance to win more championships with no signs of their 73-win machine declining any time soon. However, nearly every NBA team will have money to possibly spike Barnes' interest this summer due to the rising cap, which cannot be ignored.
