Warriors Shopping Harrison Barnes For Pick

The Warriors are dangling Harrison Barnes in trade talks as they attempt to trade for a first-round pick in this year’s draft, as Chad Ford of reports in an Insider-only piece. It’s unclear whether the conversations extend beyond their negotiations with the Timberwolves toward a Kevin Love deal, but it appears Warriors GM Bob Myers and company place a high value on acquiring a first-rounder to replace the one they traded to Utah last year. Golden State is without a pick in either round on Thursday.

The Timberwolves are reportedly interested in Barnes, though Wolves coach/executive Flip Saunders made it clear Thursday that he had no intention of giving up the No. 13 pick in this year’s draft. That would seem to suggest that the Warriors will have to look elsewhere for a 2014 pick, assuming they haven’t already.

Barnes was in trade rumors leading up to the deadline, even though Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob said he wasn’t anxious to move the player the team took seventh overall just two years ago. Still, it appeared the club was targeting a veteran big man who could provide short-term help in return for Barnes, indicating that either Golden State has doubts about his to fulfill his promise or that the team isn’t keen on waiting for him to do so.

    Do you think it has to be a lottery pick or would the Raps have a chance building a package around #20?

    • Expiring contracts + the 20 might do it. Opens up cap space for a Love trade or a KT extortion

      • Adam Gingrich

        yeah we have salmons as an expiring. seems like there are better offers out there though

        • DirtyJay

          That actually may work considering Salmons is a partially guaranteed contract and the Warriors can just waive him this year for a small fee. Also, the Raptors could trade Tyler Hansbrough and/or Amir Johnson as well due to their contract situations. In the end, it may be just #20 for Barnes which isn’t a fair deal for the Warriors and can be easily topped but you never know because if the Warriors do indeed get Love and Martin from the Twolves, they may be looking to save some money and by waiving a contract for a tiny sum could do that. Also, with the 20th pick, they could go foreign. Although, I haven’t read or heard any Raptor interest of yet on Barnes. I know Colangelo was high on him, not sure about Ujiri

    Wonder if pick #12 from the Magic would get the deal done.

    “The Warriors don’t have a first-round pick, though they’ve been trying to move up in the draft using Harrison Barnes as bait and have been involved in trade discussions centering on Kevin Love that could net them Minnesota’s 13th pick (though the latest from Marc Stein actually has the Wolves demanding that the Warriors give them a future first-round pick). But I wouldn’t read too much into the visit. While the Kings, Nuggets and Wolves brought large contingents of their staff to the workouts, the Warriors were only represented by Larry Riley, their director of scouting.” —————-From the article.

    Maybe if the Timberwolves made the Love deal with Boston to get extra picks, they’d have an extra to toss at GS for Barnes?
