(Ezra Shaw/Getty Images North America) addition here), but in doing so the role of Harrison Barnes changes drastically. The question is, will it help Barnes grow into his potential, or could it hurt his development because his minutes will be decreased?

As a freshman, Barnes averaged 15.7 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game in 29.4 minutes. After deciding to come back to college for his sophomore season rather than en...

Warriors add Lindsey Hunter to coaching staff
