Bargs is a better player today then he was last year.Numbers don't always tell the story. Last year Bargs played his game, the game that the Raptors staff saw when they were scouting him. They did not seek any change to his game last year. During the summer the transformation started by trying to beef him up make him bigger and stronger. I still believe that Bargs is still learning to play with his large body. The strength training programing could have altered his shot.Add on the fact that the team is trying to teach him how to play a differant position in the NBA.Majority of players would struggle learning a new position in the NBA. Actually how many players are asked to play a differant position from the position they were drafted. You got to give Bargs some slack, the Raptors are asking him to be a differant player. I am not sure whether we are doing the right thing however its still premature to write him off.
