Harrison Barnes Willing To Come Off Bench Because Of Andre Iguodala
The Golden State Warriors have a problem that a lot of teams wish they had right about now.
They have a lot of talent at shooting guard, on the wing, and everyone can’t play. With the addition of Andre Iguodala, the Warriors will now probably have to shift Harrison Barnes to sixth man.
Barnes started 81 games for the Warriors during the regular season, and finally started to find his groove during the playoffs.
Barnes told the Sporting News that he has no problem coming off the bench, because his job is to help the team win.
“My role will remain the same—do whatever it takes to win,” Barnes told Sporting News on Monday. “Whether it is starting, coming off the bench. There are plenty of minutes to be divided up among everybody. I just have to make sure I am ready.”
Barnes should flourish as a sixth man, and if not for his inability to shoot as well as Klay Thompson, he might still be the starter.
