Fantasy Impact:

“If you want to complement Barrett, that’s where I’d go, one opposing front office member said. Adding (a guard and big man who can shoot the perimeter), you space the floor and make things easier for him. The floor was so crowded for him this year.” The Knicks have an obvious need of shooters to spread the court as the team shot 33.7 percent from downtown this season. New York will focus on bringing in players to compliment Barrett, which should only increase in fantasy value. Barrett is averaging 14.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.1 triples across 56 games this year.
