Ford thinks Barnes is second on Washington's board behind Beal (duh) but the most interesting nugget is that Ford is getting messages from several lottery teams behind us that make's him think that Barnes could fall and fall HARD. All the way to Toronto at 8th..... Ford and Rusillo are hearing that teams have growing doubts about Barnes. That and the fact that the Wages Of Wins have Barnes ranked extremely low for a high pick (83rd......with Beal in 3rd) makes me rethink my earlier position in the Barnes-Beal debate.
Here is a link to today's NBA Today Podcast. IMHO a must listen run down of the lottery by Chad Ford and Ryan Rusillo.
My concern especially here is that Ernie now seems to be the ONLY GM thinking about this guy in the top 3, or top 7 for that matter. That just doesn't feel right.
