Will Barton played 27 minutes in a loss to the Warriors on Monday, finishing with 14 points on 6-of-11 from the field, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists and two turnovers.
Barton had a decent game against the Warriors tonight and is sitting just outside the top-120 on the season in 30.1 minutes per game. Will the Thrill could be more of a mid-round asset if he can pick up his sub-par free throw shooting (72.2%). A trade may be on the horizon shipping him out of Denver, but this can go both ways. It’s a crowded situation in Denver and it’s possible that a team trading for him would probably need him more than the Nuggets’ do with their crowded rotation.
