    Barnes to stay or go?

    HB said that this year felt like a job unfinished but did not make a committment to staying or leaving yet. I personally think he will stay one more year. What do you guys think he will decide?

    Re: Barnes to stay or go?

    I think he will stay. Has some work to do for Roy. Unfinished business at UNC. He has some room to grow too. They would be a top five team when the season kicks off in the fall. He can take a game over, almost...

    No question that he will stay. He has a ways to go before he is ready for the NBA.

    I agree. One more year I think would help him. Very poor start to the season and played very good late in the year.

    Re: Barnes to stay or go?

    He's a top 10 pick easily right now but I bet he stays 1 more year. He doesn't seem money hungry like most kids in his position are.

    Jeremy Lamb (UConn) was nobody's All-American and as a Fresh has out performed Barnes in this Tourney if that helps.

    If he was not money hungry, he probably would have went to ISU.

    Re: Barnes to stay or go?

    If he has any business sense he gets the hell out. You can always get a degree. Another year of college basketball isn't going to help much. He's a top 5 pick right now.

    Yeah, the way he airballed those last three 3-point shots in final two minutes with the game on the line showed he's not clutch.

    Grow up, please.

    He said from the beginning that he wanted at least 3 years so he'd be close to getting his degree. I don't think he'll leave just yet. He still has a lot of development to do till he can play at the next level, specifically creating a shot for himself. I think he'll be around for another year at least.

    Re: Barnes to stay or go?

    I think teams are gonna be willing to project what he can do and draft him high first round. Although he hasn't had the impact of Durant, Wall, D-Rose, etc over the last 5 years, NBA Scouts will gush over the potential. He has the frame to add 25 pounds and not effect his play, etc. Plus getting him out of UNC and the bad habits developed under Roy Boy will be huge for Harrison.

    If Harrison stays one year, he better count on staying 2 more. I don't see 1 more year improving his stock. But 2 years maybe.

    Lamb does have Kemba Walker relieving A LOT of pressure, to be fair.

    Re: Barnes to stay or go?

    I think he stays, hopefully he realizes how much he could grow in one more season. That and the high likelihood of a lockout would make me believe he'll stay.
