ESPN - Well-traveled F Barnes re-signs with Warriors - NBA
He'll probably have a good year and end up signing a good contract after the season...but some of the guys who signed fairly lucrative deals seem less talented than him. I'm thinking a guy like Jason Kapono...basically one one dimensional player...got a decent deal....why couldn't Barnes?
I'm kinda thinking Barnes is in the Flip Murray class. They can score and look ok in the scoresheet. Kapono is in the Dell Curry class. One dimensional, yes, but that one dimension is gold.
OK. How about Matt Carroll signing a 6 year 27 million dollar contract? Seems to me he played well against us the two times I saw him last year but Barnes has to be comparable to him?
Another Bruin gets to showcase his talents again next year.
Lot of talk about Barnes is that he's prospered in that run-n-gun system. I wonder what would he look like in the structured environment like SA.
I am not a BArnes expert but maybe its the difference between a scorer and a shooter. A shooter can spread the floor making it easier for your key guys to score.
My guess is that he wouldn't look too good playing for anyone other than Nellie. I'm just not impressed with his game. He's scrappy, but can't really defend. He's only a decent shooter. There's a reason nobody offered him a contract.
