WHAT THEY'RE SAYING AROUND THE WEB
Defensively, Barton has both the tools (size, length, lateral quickness) and the willingness to make his presence felt on this end of the court. He gets down in a stance and will play tough, intense, in-your-face pressure defense looking to shut-down his match up. The tools he displays are undeniable, with his excellent size, outstanding wingspan, and very nice athleticism. Barton is a scorer through and through, showing great instincts in this area, a real hunger to put the ball in the basket, and the type of swagger and competitiveness that most great players do. He has solid court vision, making some very intelligent passes in drive and dish situations in both the half-court and in transition, as well as a jump-shot that he should be able to develop into a terrific weapon down the road.
Young with a lot of talent offensively. Significantly improved his efficiency over the last year. At his best in transition. Can create his own shot. Rebounds very well for a guard.
NBA DRAFT INSIDER
Barton is a terrific scorer and shooter from the wing. He can be a streaky shooter, but one that can really fill it up when he gets hot. He is good from deep and when he gets into the paint he absorbs contact well. He does not look it because of his slight frame, but Barton is a solid rebounder for his position and improved defender.
