I have a few questions on him. Allot of people are saying he's a bad defender, but to me he seems like a really good defender. And what do you think his potential is? I see him producing right away, and eventually I think he can become an all-star caliber player.

Here's draftexpress' scouting report, in which you can clearly see he's a good defender.

I haven't heard he's a bad defender. It's definitely a big adjustment defending in the pro's though. Most rookies are going to struggle at first.

Yeah but a thread was put up about him and all of a sudden everyone started bashing his defense, and I was just wondering why?

He was a safe pick and fell for a reason. Marvin Williams 2.0

Best case scenario is Granger, Worst case another Dorrell Wright.

Haha na but it seemed like everyone said he was a bad defender. And there's no way he's Marvin Williams, he's the most polished player int he draft and is a workhorse.

Just look at it this way. The Warriors got the 3rd best SF in the Draft.

Reminds me of a Luol Deng type 16-20 ppg guy, have a long decent career

I think his cieling is a little higher than Granger, as he seems to be very athletic and could be a great defender.

I think people are just making assumptions because he's been compared to Kidd-Gilchrist who is a rare defender. I think Barnes will be a slightly above average defender from day one who can give you 15 a night and grab 5 boards, and over time I see him becoming a good defender who can give you 20 a night.

I could see him being as good as Marvin Williams at first. Good at all things, not great at anything. It's up to him on how good he will be. He has all the physical tools and already shows ability.

I think it will take him a year or two to really get the flow going. Sorta like Evan Turner. Most people thought he was a bust but he's starting to pan out slowly.

Golden State if healthy has a lot of size heading into next year.

Might surprise some people, we'll see.
