2) Harrison Barnes
While Harrison Barnes did not receive as much attention as some of his bigger-name teammates in Golden State, he still played a key role in helping them win the NBA championship in 2014-15. He started all 82 regular season games, then followed this up with some pivotal performances during the playoffs.
The next season, Barnes helped the Warriors set an NBA record with 73 regular season victories and followed this up by winning an Olympic Gold with the United States. The point is, this is a player who knows what it takes to reach the pinnacle.
The problem for the 29-year-old is that he is currently in the NBA equivalent of purgatory, residing with the Sacramento Kings. This is a franchise which hasn’t been to the playoffs since the 2005-06 season.
To his credit, Barnes continues to play hard and still produce consistently. If anything, his time in Sacramento has highlighted even more his excellent work ethic and defence.
The 2012 seventh overall draft pick has speed, an excellent vertical leap and good shooting range. He is an all-around talent, although you could reason he will never quite reach his ceiling.
Regardless, Barnes is someone the Toronto Raptors should definitely target. In fact, out of the three options in this article, he is the one who they probably have the best chance of acquiring.
