Default What's the likelihood of Harrison Barnes falling out of the top 5?

Barnes to Cleveland has been one of few foregone conclusions in this years draft - at least according to many mock drafts and analysts. Now, some reports claim that the Cavaliers could be leaning towards MKG instead.

Barnes appears to have underwhelmed many scouts and has some stigma attached to him as a bit of an underachiever. Nevertheless, he's projected in the top 5. What are the odds this kid falls out of the top 5 altogether? Dropping to as low as 9 or 10? With reports of Austin Rivers' stock rising and potentially landing in the top 10, could Barnes be a casualty of the deck getting reshuffled?

I don't think they're too good. I'd say like 10%.

Chances are 2/3 are a combination of Beal/TRob. That would mean he would likely land at 4/5.

If the 2/3 combo is Beal/MKG or TRob/MKG then he'd still go 4/5.

i think he goes 5th to sacramento, hes a good fit there, and unless they trade (very possible), they should take him

if he slides past the kings, portland probably passes too (big hole at pg, and center, so drummond or lillard are great options for them, and they already have a good young sf in batum), but theres no way he slides past the warriors at 7

golden state at 7 is his floor

its kinda funny, for such a polarizing guy, his range is quite small

Warriors take the bust of the draft at #7. Pass on a potential great Big for a wing player with no upside. It's fukcing lovely being a GS fan.

yeah why the **** would you want a 3 with a great frame, good athleticism, and a classic shooting stroke?

Barnes has a tight midrange and pull-up game off the dribble come on man.
