Hoop Obsession


Barrett, R.J. Duke 6'7" 208 SF frosh. Barrett projects as a top-tier small forward for years to come in the NBA. The left-handed Canadian is among the most scouted prospects to come along in years. He played for the World Team at the Nike Hoop Summit as a 16 year-old. This season at Duke, Barrett averaged 22.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game. He can create his own shot. He finishes in transition at an NBA level, and he is willing to share. ...His shooting numbers this season were pedestrian. He connected on just 30.8% of his three-pointers, and shot just 66.5% from the foul line. Defensively, Barrett has the tools but he needs to lock-in more often. Duke was 3.2 points better, per 100 possessions defensively, with Barrett OFF the floor. ...While he can clearly improve his focus, shooting, and defensive intensity, Barrett is likely to be among the top-three picks in the 2019 NBA Draft. 


Good Advice: In 2003, the 2nd pick in the NBA Draft was Darko Milicic. We advised, "Draft Carmelo Anthony."
