Nets look for semblance of hope against the lowly Denver Nuggets

Will Barton


A former five-star high school recruit thought to have loads of untapped potential, Barton was mostly ineffective in limited minutes for Portland, but flourished in Denver following a midseason trade to the Nuggets. Barton excels at running in transition, and at 6’6", he has the size to defend three positions. But he’s not much of a shooter, hitting just 28% of his three-pointers in Denver, and he’s not quite good enough on defense to compensate. 


Barton is reportedly a favorite of Nuggets GM Tim Connelly, but the Nets may be able to lure him away if the Nuggets want to keep a clean cap sheet.
