Fantasy Impact:

Barton has been a fixture of the Nuggets rotation for the past 6.5 years. Denver is loaded with depth, but the Nuggets are still rumored to be interested in retaining his services. Barton could fetch more than his $14.7M annually, but the former second-round pick is likely looking for a long-term deal. He finished the 2021 season, averaging 12.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.2 assists across 56 games.
