Scouting Report

A sure-fire top-five pick at this time last year, Barnes returned to North Carolina for his sophomore season but might have seen his stock drop slightly after flaws were exposed in this year's NCAA tournament. As good as he is offensively, Barnes lacks explosiveness and struggles to create shots for himself. That was never more evident than in the Tar Heels' run to the regional final once they lost star point guard Kendall Marshall to an injury. Barnes shot 8 for 30 from the field in the two games Marshall missed and would average 14.0 points in the tournament - he entered with a 17.4 average - while committing 11 turnovers. So landing with a lousy team - likely the case considering how high he'll be picked - or on a roster without a very adept point guard could spell trouble early in Barnes' NBA career. However, a good work ethic, high basketball IQ and strong character could help him overcome any shortcomings. He has very few physically, with terrific strength and length as well as a good skill set to be a promising small forward - at both ends of the floor. Barnes displays good fundamentals, particularly on defense, and is a pure scorer who has a terrific mid-range game with improving 3-point accuracy. However, that lack of a quick first step and aggressiveness means he too often settles for outside shots and shies away from contact. Plus, his ball-handling and passing skills are limited, having had only 43 assists in 38 games as a sophomore. The first-team All-ACC selection might not have lived up to some enormous expectations after being the nation's top high school recruit in 2010, but he has the physical and mental tools to be a long-time NBA contributor.
