The Warriors are getting flooded with calls for Harrison Barnes but won’t deal him unless he’s part of a package for a big name, reports Sam Amick of USA Today. Despite Barnes’ struggles this year, Golden State remains extremely high on the 21-year-old forward and isn’t likely to deal him before the trade deadline (Twitter links). Last month, Zach Lowe of Grantland reported that Barnes had been garnering interest from around the league.
In January, Barnes averaged 6.9 PPG and 4.1 RPG in 24.5 MPG, but shot just 33.7% from the field overall. However, over his last four games this month, the North Carolina product is scoring 13.3 PPG on 48.8% shooting from the field and 54.5% from long range – much closer to his promising numbers to start the 2013/14 regular season. Earlier today, we made note from Lowe that the Warriors still aren’t ready to trade him.
