Harrison Barnes and the Mavericks’ timeline going forward (Video Breakdown)

Harrison Barnes’ on court relationship with Mavs fans has been complicated. Let’s breakdown how he’s playing and how he fits with the Mavs going forward.

NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Harrison Barnes has been an enigma for Mavs fans ever since he signed in the summer of 2016. On one hand, it was incredible when Kevin Durant signed with the Warriors and all of a sudden the Mavs had a chance to sign a big free agent. On top of that, they passed on resigning Chandler Parsons to the exact same deal. And now Parsons has played in just 73 games in 3 years while Harrison Barnes has played in over 200 games and averages just under 19 points per game.

On the other hand, Barnes’ game has proved to be fairly limited and he hasn’t become the playmaker or the closer that Mavs fans really wanted in their highest paid player. He also has a big decision coming up this summer that might not be as obvious as we thought.

So let’s breakdown Harrison Barnes and how he fits the Mavs timeline going forward.

It’s an interesting situation that the Mavs front office and Mavs fans can’t turn a blind eye to.
