We don't actually know what Barnes might become. They even had concerns about whether LeBron could shoot coming into the league.

But there are going to be some busts in this draft. And T.O. cannot, I repeat, cannot end up with a bust. Raps drafted well, T-Mac left for nothing, then Hoffa set us back a good 2 years, ultimatley causing Vince to want out, getting us nothing in return, setting us back again followed by Bargnani's perpetual potential followed by Bosh leaving for nothing.

That's why the smart thing to do may be to look at a guy whose upside may be anywhere from a 6/10 to a 9/10 and try to swing a deal to obtain an 8/10 at a position you need. They need recxognized and understood talent.

Trade that pick!
