Default Chance At Harrison Barnes?

At the pace we're going. Probably have the 5-6th pick. Do we have a shot at getting Harrison Barnes? Or maybe another impact SF rookie that you want to discuss?

this is for sure the worst team the Raptors put on the floor since we landed the no 1 pick in the draft in 06

and where missing Bargs for a ton of games,

the funny hting is we have almolst the same record with team that has a top 3 pg in deron williams on it, and another team wiht amare and melo on it

we're on pace for 22-23 wins, especially if Bargs gets back and stays back. that probably keep us in the 5-7 range. which means it's unlikely we get barnes unless we trade up. Glichrest though would be possible.

Honestly I don't know. I haven't been watching NCAA. So I'm going by word of mouth and scouting/ratings. What I've heard about Barnes that I like is that he can score but that he plays good D. Gilchrest I'm not sure about but everything I hear is that he's the second best option at SF.

Neither Gilchrist or Barnes are franchise saviors, or franchise players. More so, I'd say they'd top at third options on a good team.

If I had to pick though, Barnes imo is a better defender out of the two and I like guys who go to big programs and learn from good coaches. So Barnes.

If either can be Rudy Gay like I'd be pretty happy.

I've been told the Barnes struggles to create his own shot.

barnes feels like a defensive glue guy but with tremendous length. not the franchise player everyone desperately wants, but i would still take him.

With the 2nd pick take a PG like Kendall or another SF:
Will Barton

Barnes is a shooter unlike DD. Great shooter. One thing Barnes has struggle with AT TIMES is dribbling. Sometimes he will dribble himself into a turnover. 6'8 SF though, so great size, very good defense, great shooter, rebounds, and athletic.

Barnes is easily one of the best prospect in the draft and will be a very good player. Franchise player? Not sure yet. I think he can get better, how much better is the question?

DraftExpress has MKG and Barnes at picks 3 and 4, respectively.

Lamb is a SG in the NBA, he doesn't have the size to play SF.

Terrence Jones, Perry Jones or Quincy Miller seem to be the Raptors' options at this point (if they draft a SF - and the Joneses are SF/PFs in the NBA, which could work well with Bargs at PF), though obviously there's still 2/3rds of a season to play, and the draft lottery, or a trade, could change that projection.
