Kerr: Harrison Barnes' Versatility Is What NBA Is All About Now

Sep 29, 2015 12:20 PM

Harrison Barnes turned down a contract extension with the Golden State Warriors worth $16 million per season.

Barnes is just 23 and can play multiple positions though he hasn't proven himself capable of scoring at the type of level one assumes you are getting with a contract that significant.

“It just may not be in the cards for me to create more here,” Barnes says, “but I can do it, and maybe this season there will be more opportunities.”

Barnes uses only about 15 percent of Golden State's possessions.

“His versatility is what the league is all about now,” Kerr said.

Steve Nash Hopes To Help Stephen Curry Through Film Study

Sep 24, 2015 2:41 PM

Steve Nash confirmed he will join the Golden State Warriors as a part-time player development consultant.

Stephen Curry grew up following Nash's career and in part modeled his game after him.

"As I've told Steph, his skill level is so high that although we'll be on the court together, I don't know how much I can help him on the court," said Nash. "But through watching a little bit of film and talking, maybe I can help him with situations. But his skill level is incredible, and hopefully I'll learn as much from him as he will from me."
