Someone who might not fit in Beamtown anymore

The Kings have spent the season being the underdog story of it all, showing the league that there is more to Sacramento than just losing basketball. The Domantas Sabonis experiment has paid off in droves as the Kings are much better than anyone could have guessed.

However, with the addition of Keegan Murray, questions persist about how necessary Harrison Barnes is to the future of the franchise. For one, he is currently overpaid and he may not be willing to return to the same team for less money. Perhaps Barnes might be ready for a change of scenery this summer during his free agency.

From the Pacers standpoint he fits a position of need and can play on both sides of the court. He isn’t particularly elite on either side of the ball for what he is currently played, but the Pacers should monitor what interest he is garnering around the league and swoop in if the price is right. He can play on a championship level team as a rotational forward  as his time in Golden State shows, so he’s at least worth consideration.
