ESPN’s Marc Stein reports that the Sixers plan to be “serious suitors” for restricted free agent Harrison Barnes.
There is a Team USA connection to the Colangelos that stands out at first glance and one can bet that Barnes’ agents are going to blast out that a number of teams are interested in him. So we’ll have to see what sticks here but the Sixers throwing their hat into the ring like this is the first step toward getting a number on paper that the Warriors have to consider matching. One has to think anything over $20 million is something they’re going to balk at.
