Barnes would be a better building block than Ross. He's more consistent with his shot and he has more diversity in his game. He's a decent defender, but not as good as Ross.

If the Raptors can acquire Barnes just for Amir, MU should strongly consider it. Obviously, he should have another deal in the works that nets them a starting PF. I like the idea of seeing if Monroe could be had from Detroit and see if Ross and another piece would be enough. The Raptors' core would be very good - Lowry (if re-signed), DD, Barnes, Monroe, and JV.
