...Harrison Barnes has a lot of potential, but I don't see him developing that potential unless he's given a lot of time to mature, and a lot of minutes. For me, he's a guy that needs to land in a good situation. If he doesn't, he's a bust. If he does, he could be a very solid player in the future.

He's a good example of a player that shouldn't be drafted by a team that doesn't have a role for him where he can play regular minutes. (Personally, I think that Hasheem Thabeet could have been an adequate NBA center by now if he'd have been drafted into a better situation.)

I think the Raptors could develop him, but it would probably take a long time. At this point I'd rather draft a guy that's further along in his development.
