The Suns reportedly have been on the lookout for another small forward following the injury to starter Cam Johnson, using Jae Crowder as bait. Crowder has been away from the team after requesting a trade.
Meanwhile, the Kings have an interest in Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma, Hawks forward John Collins and several others, per Anderson. The Hawks do indeed have an interest in Barnes, league sources told Hoops Wire. Recent reports suggest Atlanta is also looking to move Collins.
Barnes, 30, is 6-foot-8 and averaging 11.6 points and 5.5 rebounds in 14 games, shooting 44 percent from the field.
The Kings, who have not made the playoffs since 2006, are off to a strong start under new coach Mike Brown, having won five straight entering Sunday’s home game vs. the Pistons.
