Scottie Barnes

20-Year-Old ForwardF
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Barnes was somewhat of a surprising pick by the Raptors at No. 4, but there's no question that he has the frame and skill set to develop into the best defender in the draft. At 6-foot-9, 230 pounds, Barnes has the body of a forward, but he spent most of his time at point guard as a freshman at Florida State last season. The major knock on Barnes is that he's a poor shooter (27.5% 3PT; 62.1% FT last season), but he's an effective finisher at the rim who can rebound, pass, block shots and defend virtually any position. Long-term, Toronto's hope is that it can develop Barnes into the next evolution of Draymond Green, but Barnes may not have a major fantasy impact in his rookie season. Concerns about the jumpshot aside, Barnes joins a talented roster that already features Pascal Siakam, OG Anunoby, and Precious Achiuwa up front, with Fred VanVleet, Goran Dragic and Malachi Flynn as options at point guard. Nick Nurse will find a role for Barnes, but his fantasy floor is not as high as the other elite prospects in the 2021 Draft class. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Scott Wayne Barnes Jr. was born in August of 2001 in West Palm Beach, Florida. He is the son of Kathalyn Wilkins and has two brothers. Barnes started his prep school journey at Cardinal Newman High School in West Palm Beach, where he earned MaxPreps Freshman All-American honors. Barnes then won a gold medal with the United States at the 2017 FIBA Under-16 Americas Championship in Argentina. Next, he transferred to NSU University School in Fort Lauderdale, where he played ball for two more seasons and earned two Class 5A state titles. Before his senior high school season, he transferred to Montverde Academy in Montverde, Florida. Barnes, Cade Cunningham and Day'Ron Sharpe led Montverde to a 25-0 record. In October of 2019, Barnes committed to Florida State University. At FSU, Barnes started seven of 24 games as a freshman (2020-21) and posted 10.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.5 steals over 24.8 minutes per game. He also shot 50.3 percent from the field. Barnes was named 2021 ACC Freshman of the Year, ACC Sixth Man of the Year and Third Team All-ACC. In April of 2021, he declared for the NBA Draft and was selected with the fourth overall pick by the Toronto Raptors.

Bounces back with 27-point game
FToronto Raptors
January 22, 2022
Barnes closed Friday's 109-105 victory over the Wizards with 27 points (12-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal across 40 minutes.
ANALYSIS
Barnes enjoyed a strong start to the season, but it seemed as if he had hit a rookie wall of late, surpassing the 15-point mark just once since Dec. 18 before this outing against Washington. The first-year forward out of Florida State continues to be one of the most productive rookies in the league, but his numbers are trending in the wrong direction, and he's averaged just 14.0 points per game since the beginning of December.
