The San Antonio Spurs have announced that the team has acquired veteran forward Harrison Barnes from the Sacramento Kings in a three-team deal that also includes the Chicago Bulls. In addition, San Antonio receives the right to swap first round picks with the Kings in 2031 and sends RaiQuan Gray to Chicago.  

Barnes, 6-8/225, started in all 82 games for Sacramento last season, averaging 12.2 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists while shooting 38.7% from three. He scored in double figures in 51 games, including 20+ points in 13 games and 30+ points three times, one of them being a career-high 39 points at Golden State on Jan. 25.

The NBA champion and 12-year vet has played in a total of 911 career games (850 starts) and holds averages of 14.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 31.6 minutes with Golden State, Dallas and Sacramento. Over the last three seasons, he has appeared in 222 consecutive games (all starts), which is the second-longest active streak in the NBA.

With five playoff appearances under his belt, Barnes has averaged 10.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 31.5 minutes over 71 career playoff games (63 starts) with Golden State (2012-16) and Sacramento (2022-23), winning the 2015 NBA Finals with the Warriors.

Barnes was selected seventh overall in the 2012 NBA Draft by Golden State out of North Carolina and was named to the 2012-13 All-Rookie First Team.
