2002 Scouting Report:

Strengths: Versatile player who has the ability to do a multitude of things on the court ... Has really worked on his 3-point jumper and he is now a legitimate threat from downtown ... Decent rebounder thanks to his hustle and tough demeanor on the glass ... Moves well without the ball as he can spot-up for the 3-point shot or cut to the basket for the lay-up ... Has some court vision because of this he is a decent passer ... Pretty good finisher in transition ... When defenders are guarding him out on the perimeter he can dribble past his opponent for the drive or shoot the short floater in the lane ... Has tremendous work ethic as he has refined his game each year ... Confidence has improved greatly this year something which once troubled him ... Comfortable with his back to the basket as he can convert numerous shots around the basket ... Team player who is unselfish and will look for the open teammate ...

Weakness: Will suffer in the NBA to find a position as he will struggle playing either forward slots ... Could stand to improve on shooting from mid-range on the perimeter ... Has a habit of getting careless with the ball so he could stand to improve on better ball protection ... Needs to improve his decision making due to his tendency to make poor passes which usually result in turnovers ... While his ball handling has improved from last year it wouldn’t hurt it he tweaked it a bit if he is to play the small forward position ... With his newfound range Barnes has settled at time shooting from the outside rather than driving to the basket ... Poor free throw shooter ... When driving in the lane Barnes can get out of control ...
