The Clippers and free agent
Barnes will sign a three-year deal worth about $11 million, said
The first two years of the contract will be guaranteed.
Barnes took to Twitter on Friday to let people know:
The Clippers used part of their $5.1 million mid-level exception on Barnes, and it probably means the team won’t be able to sign free-agent power forward
Barnes can't sign his contract until Wednesday, the day the NBA lifts its free-agent moratorium.
Barnes, 33, had a strong year last season in a reserve role for the Clippers, averaging 10.3 points a game and shooting 34.2% from beyond the three-point arc.
