Harrison Barnes had a great rookie season, earning NBA All-Rookie First Team Honors back in 2013. He followed that up with a horrendous sophomore season, that he himself said he wanted to forget. His third year in the league was much better as he was third on the team in three point shooting percentage.

Barnes has tons of potential and he is by far the most athletic player on the Warriors’ roster. He shoots the ball well, but some question his decision making on the court, specifically his overuse of isolation basketball while under coach Mark Jackson.

Now that he has a year of Steve Kerr‘s system under his belt, most expcect that Barnes will have a breakout year. Barnes and the Warriors are talking about a possible contract extension, so it is in Barnes’ best interest to have a productive season in order to make sure that contract is as large as possible.

With all factors considered, if Barnes works hard and continues to develop his game, the potential is there for a very big year.
