Matt Barnes scored 12 points on 3-of-11 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with 16 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in Friday’s loss to the Celtics.
This game reeked of Dave Joerger going with his trusted guys to a fault as Barnes was a mix of both good and bad (mostly bad). He logged 31 minutes and is much better when he stays in his lane in a 25-28 mpg role and for owners he has struggled. He should shoot better than 38 percent from the field on the year but the Kings are the type of team that can take a consistent season-over-season player and make them veer off course. Add him at your own risk.
