Vegas Summer League Day 7: Will Barton doubled up with 15 points and a game-high 10 rebounds (four offensive) in a losing effort Thursday.
On the surface the stat line looks nice, but the second-year player out of Memphis went a combined 4-of-19 from the field (1-of-7 3-pointers) to get the 15 points. He has now made just four triples in 18 tries over four games in Vegas while shooting under 40% from the field in three of those four games. In addition, his decision making has not been the best as he has 15 turnovers, including 10 over his last two games. Barton flashed some upside at times last season, just as he has this summer, but if he hopes to be a player who can garner consistent minutes he will have to show he can be a more efficient and reliable offensive player.
