Warriors and Harrison Barnes suspend contract extension talks until July

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden State Warriors will not be signing Harrison Barnes to a contract extension before November 2nd deadline of this year.

This makes sense on all fronts. There's no way the Warriors can give him more than a set percentage over what he's making right now ($3.87mm) and the expanding salary cap of the NBA is probably going to help Barnes land an $60 million contract next year based on other signings we've been seeing.

It's better for everyone to just focus on trying to repeat as NBA champions this season and worry about Barnes after a 2nd trophy.
