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 very good value pick for a team in the 2021 draft.
