Barnes: Love to Stay With Warriors, But Out of My Control


(Warriors’ forward) Harrison Barnes, for example. He will be a restricted free agent on July 1 and plays the same position as (Kevin) Durant, small forward. Barnes would love to stay. But asked if he thinks he is staying, he told “Assuming no one else chooses to sign here?”

He smiled.

“It’s out of my control,” Barnes said. “People say, ‘Do you want to be here in Golden State?’ A lot of it is, look, I love Golden State. I’d love to be here. But there’s also some other factors that factor into that, you know what I’m saying?”
