Recently, the Sacramento Kings resigned Harrison Barnes to a three-year $54 million deal. The deal will keep Barnes with the Kings through the 2025-26 season and he will become an unrestricted free agent in the 2026 offseason.
Last season with Sacramento, Barnes averaged 15.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game while shooting 47.3% from the field and 37.4% from three. He played an integral role in the Kings being the most shockingly successful team of the 2023-24 season. He started in all 82 of the regular season games that the Kings played.
It is clear that Sacramento’s front office believed that they found the right fit with the roster they had last season and they are looking to run it back in the 2023-24 season. While the Kings would fall short in the postseason and be eliminated in the first round by the Golden State Warriors, as their young core continues to develop their games, they could make some real noise in the postseason.
Bringing Barnes back to the team was a perfect move for the Kings. He will only be 33 years old at the end of this deal, and by that point, he may be beginning to show some signs of regression. At that point, if the Kings still want him as a member of their team, they could sign him to another deal with a majorly reduced salary.
With the success that the Kings have had, if they are able to continue it into the next three seasons, there is a chance that Barnes could spend the rest of his NBA career with the Kings. They are a very intriguing team and statistically had one of the best offenses of all time last season. As Barnes is able to excel on both sides of the ball, it was absolutely essential that the Kings brought him back as one of the better defenders that the team had while still having a very solid outside shot.
