Pick of the Day: Matt Barnes
Buck is back with some bonus coverage of this week’s Wire Troll.
Matt Barnes, F, Orlando Magic: Barnes was promoted to the starting lineup Wednesday, and since then he has averaged 16.7 points, seven boards and 1.7 treys per outing. All of those three-balls came in one game, though, so we wouldn’t recommend counting too heavily on him in that category. Barnes makes a fine Fantasy reserve as long as he has a starting gig (and reports that coach Stan Van Gundy plans to keep him there bode well), but he won’t light it up in any one category – especially given the number of weapons in Orlando’s arsenal.
