Harrison Barnes, the perfect relay for Mike Brown

They only crossed paths at the Warriors, but Mike Brown was adamant about Harrison Barnes staying at the Kings when he took the coaching job. The former NBA champion is a « glue guy » in a group, and at 30 years old, he has perhaps never been more valuable in this role.

“I said it at the start of the season, I don’t care about Harrison” assures the coach. “I don’t run a lot of systems for him because he’s a veteran who knows how to play. He calms us down when we get a little carried away, because we all get carried away a little, myself included. He calms everyone down, on both sides of the pitch. It’s a good thing to have him on the pitch. »

Wednesday night, after the win over the Pacers, a reporter pointed out that Sacramento was going 8-1 when Harrison Barnes scored 13+ points. This is proof, perhaps, that he should be more involved in attack.

« He’s a player who can score from anywhere. He is more and more comfortable in his choices. His ability to get to the free-throw line is great for us all year because he got there at crucial times.” points out Mike Brown. “Times when we needed to slow down and get our defense in place, and all those other things. He does it for us. So he’s just doing what he’s capable of doing, and I don’t think it’s anything special. »

A speech that confirms the indispensable role of Harrison Barnes in the Brown system, and two weeks ago, we learned that the management no longer wanted to part with it.
