A chapter in former UNC basketball star Harrison Barnes' professional career has come to a close, as he will now leave the place where he spent the majority of his NBA career to join another team.

Barnes was one of the headliners in the three-team deal that sent DeMar Derozan to the Sacramento Kings, a move which sent the former Tar Heel to the San Antonio Spurs. Entering his 13th NBA season, Barnes will now join his fourth NBA organization.

One day when his career comes to a close, Barnes will be remembered as a very good NBA player. Sure, he'll be remembered as a NBA champion with the Golden State Warriors, but his time in Sacramento will be remembered just as fondly.

After playing in 399 games as a member of the Kings organization, Barnes had to say goodbye to the franchise and community that he has called home since the middle of the 2018-2019 season. He released this short video on social media to discuss how much his time in Sacramento meant to him.

Barnes helped lead a young Kings roster into the future, as the organization seems to be on track to be a legitimate contender in the Western Conference over the next few seasons. Although Barnes won't be there to be a part of it, his impact both on and off the court is one that Sacramento will remember for quite some time.
