Harrison Barnes Braced For Warriors' Exit After Years Of Trade Rumors

Jul 21, 2016 11:57 AM

Harrison Barnes had a few years to brace for his departure from the Golden State Warriors as he was involved in trade rumors in 2013 for Dwight Howard, in 2014 for Kevin Love and then from 2015 until July of 2016, it was well-known Kevin Durant would be pursued in free agency.

"Dwight trade rumors. Kevin Love trade rumors. Kevin Durant ... oh, that one happened," said Barnes. "There's been a few instances where you consider what might happen. I was just more so glad to be there as long as I was."

Barnes was the No. 7 overall pick in 2012 and disappointed a lot of Warriors' fans but he still was good enough to receive a max contract in free agency from the Dallas Mavericks.

"It's been a chaotic summer," Barnes said. "I haven't really had time to process too much. We lost in the Finals. I'm going to Dallas. I'm here on the Olympic team. Even being here hasn't sunk in yet. It's been a whirlwind. I'm just trying to take it all in."

Mark Cuban Believes Warriors With Durant Will Drive Interest In NBA

Jul 14, 2016 11:06 AM

Mark Cuban believes the Golden State Warriors with Kevin Durant will drive interest in the NBA.

"They become the villain," Cuban said. "Just like when LeBron James went to Miami, I loved that there was a villain. They become the villain. I'm fine with that. Everybody's going to root for them to lose."

Adam Silver said the NBA would look at possible chances to their system to prevent a superteam like the Warriors.

Cuban declined to comment on potential changes to the CBA, other than saying that "a lot of research" will be necessary before any changes are proposed.
