Rj Barret was the Knicks 3rd round pick in the 2019 draft. He was supposed to be a great pick but didn't live up to the hype yet he is still young and can still be a good player.
Barret has some great upsides like scoring ability, Barrett has shown the ability to score in a variety of ways, including attacking the basket, hitting mid-range shots, and knocking down three-pointers. He has a knack for getting to the free-throw line and can be a reliable scorer when he's in a rhythm. He also averages 18.1 in his career so far which is pretty good. Rebounding, Barrett is a strong rebounder for his position, averaging 5.5 rebounds per game in his career. His size and athleticism allow him to be a factor on the glass, which can help his team generate second-chance opportunities. This is pretty much it though for his upsides he averages an ok 2.8 assists. Now we get to his downsides which are a lot more obvious when looking at him. Turnovers, Barrett has struggled with turnovers throughout his career, averaging 2.1 turnovers per game in his career. He can sometimes be overly aggressive on offense, leading to careless mistakes and turnovers. Defense, While Barrett has shown some potential as a defender, he still has room for improvement on that end of the floor. He has sometimes struggled to stay in front of his man and has been caught out of position on defense. He also averages .3 blocks and .7 steals which is pretty bad. Inconsistent shooting, while Barrett has shown improvement in his shooting, particularly from beyond the arc, he still struggles with consistency. In his career, he shoots just 42.2% from the field and 34.6% from three-point range. If he can become more consistent as a shooter, he could become a much more effective scorer.
So in conclusion I wouldn't completely say Rj Barret is a bust because he has potential. I think he just looks very bad because of the 2 people drafted before him Zion Williamson and Ja Morant. I think if Rj steps up in the next 2 seasons he can become a decent pick.
