The Golden State Warriors have begun their contract negotiations with Harrison Barnes by offering him a four-year, $64 million extension according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
According to Woj, the offer wasn’t accepted and talks will continue all the way up until the October 31 deadline for rookie extensions. If an agreement isn’t made by then, Barnes will become a restricted free agent next summer.
