The reason for his limited min at times isnt that, its that Sam didnt/doesnt have confidence in him at times. He could still develop in2 a great player.
Bargs has been playing much better as of late and even though I was one of the ones that stated that I would trade him for Okafor, I still believe that Bargs can develop into a very good player. I don't think he'll be a flat out superstar, but he'll be alright.

In terms of other players developping, everyone knew about Roy, everyone knew he would be the best player coming out of the draft, but his knee brought up a lot of red flags. The only other player that Colangelo was considering was Rudy Gay, who himself was inconsistent at UConn. Bargs played against men in the Italian league and held his own. You just have to give him a couple of year to adjust to everything. It's called being patient.
