OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -Forward Matt Barnes re-signed with the Golden State Warriors on Monday, agreeing to a one-year deal after enjoying his best NBA season with the club last year.
Barnes, a four-year veteran who has played for five teams, had career-best averages of 9.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists last season in coach Don Nelson's uptempo offense.
He also made headlines with his energetic play, a mohawk haircut and a tattoo reading ``Believe'' - especially while the Warriors upset top-seeded Dallas and advanced to the second round of the playoffs.
Barnes shopped his services to several teams as a free agent, but couldn't find a lucrative deal despite changing agents twice. His contract with Golden State is expected to be worth slightly more than $3 million - the remainder of the Warriors' mid-level salary cap exemption.
