With the seventh pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Golden State Warriors picked North Carolina swingman Harrison Barnes. Barnes fills a deep position of need for Golden State at small forward and gives them a versatile perimeter player that can really develop into one of the best scorers in the NBA.
Barnes's athleticism is one of his biggest attributes, and it makes him a very strong small forward at the next level. He can create his own shot and play in perfect spots. Although Barnes struggled in college, there's a very good chance he could perform better at the next level with his NBA measurables.
