The Golden State Warriors have been in negotiation talks with Harrison Barnes all offseason long in hopes of reaching an agreement over a contract extension. GM Rob Meyers has announced that talks have ended and no deal has been reached. Talks will come to an end due to Harrison Barnes' wish that talks do not extend into the 2015-16 season and serve as a distraction. According to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, Barnes recently turned down a four-year, $68 million extension. While both sides have agreed to suspend talks until July, both parties are confident an agreement will be reached.

The 23-year-old started all 82 games last season and averaged 10.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game on 48.2% shooting from the floor and 40.5% shooting from three.

The extension deadline is Nov. 2nd.
