Article Summary:

Will Barton Alonzo Adams-USA TODAY Sports

Will Barton of the Denver Nuggets does not represent the type of player teams are usually able to acquire ahead of the deadline. If Denver wanted to save money and didn’t see Barton as a long-term fit, maybe they’d ask the Sixers to redirect a couple of aforementioned bench players to that third team along with some picks for a name they prefer.

Might Denver be looking to add draft capital in order to make a pre-deadline splash for someone like Kyle Lowry or Lonzo Ball? Would Morey have to go into hiding from angry fans if he helped Denver land one of those sexier names and only had Barton to show for it?

Per Dunksandthrees.com, Barton isn’t exactly a great player right now, registering negative “Estimated Plus-Minus, and a negative Estimated Defensive Plus-Minus:

If the Dumas report is true, perhaps Morey checked in on Barton because he felt he could get more out of the 30 year-old than his current team is getting from him at a very low price. Perhaps Morey feels Barton playing alongside Ben Simmons might further unlock his potential, or mask some of Barton’s relative weaknesses.
