Pietrus will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season. Teams will be offering Pietrus contracts and all the Warriors have to do is match the highest offer. If a team offers MP more than the MLE (Mid Level Exception which is $5.4M), then the Warriors shouldn't match. Barnes would be a much cheaper option and a better one. I also see the Warriors drafting another front court player so Pietrus maybe expendable if the price is too high.
