Scottie Barnes has been selected by the Toronto Raptors with the No. 4 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Barnes was a highly coveted prospect due to his great all-around game. He was a star as a playmaker and rebounder in college while being a great defender.

Barnes can defend multiple positions makes him a versatile player. He is also only 19 years old, which gives him time to develop into an even better player. Scottie Barnes projects to come in and be a great role player in his rookie season, with more to come in the future.

Although Barnes projects to be great, he has some weaknesses to his game. His big weakness is perimeter shooting, which he needs to work on to fit a modern offense. Last season at Florida State, Scottie Barnes shot 27.5 percent from behind the arc and a mere 62.1 percent from the free-throw line. He dipped in and out of games at Florida State and was not the late-game takeover player some people thought he would be in his one year of college basketball.

If he can become an average shooter and a capable scorer who is willing to be assertive when he needs to, Scottie Barnes will be a great player for years to come.

Scottie Barnes is a similar style of player to Golden State Warriors star forward Draymond Green. He is the perfect prospect to come in and can make an instant impact in the NBA. Barnes stands at 6'8″ with a wingspan of 7'2″. His long wingspan is part of what makes him an elite defender.

Barnes is a player with a high IQ and has a ton of athleticism. He is also great at getting out in transition and even leading a fast break.

The Raptors got a steal in the 2021 NBA draft with Scottie Barnes and will love what he brings to the table.
