NBA Comparison: Matt Barnes

Strengths: Good size at 6'7 for the NBA 2 guard position ... High energy player ... Excellent athlete ... Can get up with the best of them ... Can finish with either hand at the rim ... Has had a number of highlight dunks ... At his best when the game is up tempo and in transition ... He possesses a deft shooting stroke ... Good range on his jump shot ... Excellent 3point range ... Has a career 3 point percentage of 39% ... Doesn't use the mid-range game much but effective when he does ... Has improved his rebounding over the years ... His jumping ability allows him to get tip ins and tip dunk ... His calling in the NBA will be defense ... Has really evolved into a defensive stopper ... His long arms allow him to get into the passing lanes for steals and deflections ... Has shown pretty good quickness and moves his feet well ... His athleticism and length has allowed him to guard everyone from Patrick Mills to Tyreke Evans to James Anderson to Tyler Smith to Chase Budinger to Grevis Vasquez and he has held his own ... High basketball IQ ... Knows the game ... MVP of the West Coast Conference Tournament

Weaknesses: Hasn't really developed into the star people thought he would be out of high school ... In 4 years of college, he never averaged more than 10 points a game ... Questionable shot selection has led to a poor field goal percentage throughout his career ... Surprisingly, not as good a free throw shooter as one might think, a career 72% ... In the NBA game, will he be able to create shots for himself off the dribble? ... Doesn't use his mid-range game much ... His ball handling is questionable and it has made him more of a catch and shoot type player which limited his effectiveness and court time ... Passing and decision making could use improvement ... Slight frame. Needs to gain some strength in order to go up against bigger and stronger 2s and 3s ... Has improved his overall attitude which has plagued him for his career but there are still glimpses of poor body language from time to time especially when he is taken out of a game ...
