Kevin Durant’s decision to become a Golden State Warrior will have some consequences as far as keeping other guys on the roster goes. The Warriors already had to get rid of Andrew Bogut to make room for Durant’s contract and are close to making that happen with the Dallas Mavericks.

Durant’s signing has also set in motion some other free agent deals like Pau Gasol going to San Antonio and now Harrison Barnes likely headed to Dallas. The Mavericks offered him a max deal for four years worth about $94 million and he is going to take it since the Warriors will be unable to match it.

With the Mavericks losing Chandler Parsons to free agency — and signing with the Memphis Grizzlies — they needed another small forward to complete a starting lineup and try to compete in the ever-rugged Western Conference.

Barnes averaged 11.7 points, 1.8 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 0.6 steals last season while starting in 59 of the 66 games he played in the regular season. He was much maligned for his terrible shooting during the course of the playoffs as he only averaged nine points and 4.7 rebounds per game while shooting an abysmal 38.5 percent from the floor.
