AMES, Iowa -- Harrison Barnes is now a millionaire with limitless entertainment options, but he keeps finding time for his hometown, and in many towns -- kids.

Barnes loves to meet, and give back to his fans, especially the young ones.

Harrison was at Alpha Copies and Print Center in his hometown of Ames Thursday.

Barnes, a former honor student, is passionate about encouraging kids to read.

We asked him how he is liking the NBA life.

“My life now is good.   You know obviously it’s a dream come true to play in the NBA every day and it’s not work for me. It’s something I enjoy doing. It’s passion and I absolutely love it,” says Barnes.

Harrison's scheduled to return in October for a Warriors vs. Nuggets exhibition game at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.
