Scottie Barnes

20-Year-Old ForwardF
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Barnes was somewhat of a surprising pick by the Raptors at No. 4, but there's no question that he has the frame and skill set to develop into the best defender in the draft. At 6-foot-9, 230 pounds, Barnes has the body of a forward, but he spent most of his time at point guard as a freshman at Florida State last season. The major knock on Barnes is that he's a poor shooter (27.5% 3PT; 62.1% FT last season), but he's an effective finisher at the rim who can rebound, pass, block shots and defend virtually any position. Long-term, Toronto's hope is that it can develop Barnes into the next evolution of Draymond Green, but Barnes may not have a major fantasy impact in his rookie season. Concerns about the jumpshot aside, Barnes joins a talented roster that already features Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby, and Precious Achiuwa up front, with Fred VanVleet, Goran Dragic and Malachi Flynn as options at point guard. Nick Nurse will find a role for Barnes, but his fantasy floor is not as high as the other elite prospects in the 2021 Draft class. Read Past Outlooks

Hands out seven assists
FToronto Raptors
October 12, 2021
Barnes posted nine points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, two rebounds and one block with no turnovers in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 113-108 preseason win over the Wizards.
ANALYSIS
Barnes continued to show off his impressive passing ability from the forward spot. In five preseason games, Barnes averaged 5.6 assists. He also averaged 9.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.4 combined steals-plus-blocks in 26.4 minutes. It remains to be seen how he'll mesh when Pascal Siakam (shoulder) returns, but Barnes is looking like a promising selection thus far. The only real downside is that the rookie shot 0-for-8 from distance during the preseason.
