After toiling in mediocrity for three seasons, Will Barton burst onto the scene as a sixth man for the Denver Nuggets in 2015-16.

Because of the modest beginning to his career, Barton has an incredible contract. He makes just over $3 million over the next two seasons. That makes him an attractive option to plenty of teams.

Barton is known for his scoring, but he’s also one of Denver’s best defensive players.

Barton’s length (he has nearly a 6-foot-10 wingspan) gives him an advantage against most defenders.

Barton can help the Knicks out on the glass too.

He’s one of the best rebounding guards in the league. During his breakout 2015-16 campaign, Barton was fifth among all guards in rebounds per game.
