Pros:

Excels at scoring on the move
Decent scorer off the dribble
Solid playmaker
Decent rebounder
Solid defender
Solid shot blocker for his size
Solid athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Needs to improve his free throw shooting

Unselfish to a fault
Can have lapses defensively

Summary:

Scottie Barnes is an athletic, skilled forward that can do a little bit of everything.  He is a solid facilitator that has good court vision to get teammates the ball consistently, and he also is a good defender that can block shots and get stops for his team. 

He will make plenty of hustle plays on both ends of the floor, and he could project to be the consummate role player in the NBA.  He will need to improve his jump shot and be more assertive on offense, but he is a talented, versatile player that could be a good value pick for a team in the 2021 draft.
