Harrison Barnes could leave the discipline of the Sacramento Kings before the next market close (February 11). According to sources of the journalist Marc Stein, the California franchise will press to find an exit for him through a transfer.
Barnes, who renewed in 2019 for four years and 85 million dollars, has this and a last campaign signed for 20 and 18 million respectively.
This season he has played 40 official games (all as a starter) with averages of 16.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 33.5 minutes per game.

Another one who does not escape the transfer rumors is Buddy Hield, who would also have great possibilities of leaving the Kings soon. This past summer he was close to joining the Lakers; however, the Angelenos decided to bet everything on the transfer of Russell Westbrook and surround their Big Three (James, Davis and Westbrook) by secondary, such as Malik Monk, Carmelo Anthony or the return of Dwight Howard.
Hield, 29, is a shooter who is averaging 15.4 points this season and 38.1% on three-pointers in 29.3 minutes per night. Ahead of him are this season and two additional ones valued at a total of 64 million dollars.
