New York Knicks forward RJ Barrett is reportedly not to be included in trade talks during the offseason. With Collin Sexton rumored to be on the Knicks' radar, the organization has made it clear that Barrett isn't an option. The 21-year-old former Duke Blue Devil averaged 17.6 points while shooting over 40 percent from deep last season. Depending on who joins the supporting cast in the Big Apple, Barrett could be in line for another solid fantasy season.
New York Knicks shooting guard RJ Barrett finished the regular season with a 22-point performance in Sunday's 96-92 win over Boston. The second-year player led all scorers while shooting 7-for-12 from the field and 2-for-4 from outside with a 6-for-8 effort at the line. He grabbed four rebounds and delivered two assists with one turnover. The Knicks ended a seven-year playoff drought in 2020-21, and they could cause teams plenty of trouble with their defense during the postseason. It will be a great experience for younger guys like Barrett, although they could also struggle under the pressure.
New York Knicks shooting guard RJ Barrett picked up his fifth double-double of the campaign in Saturday's victory over Toronto, scoring 25 points and grabbing a game-high 12 rebounds. He also had four assists with two turnovers while shooting 8-for-18 from the field and 6-for-7 at the foul line with a 3-for-7 record from deep. Barrett has gone for 20-plus points in three of the last five games, so he should feel quite good about himself ahead of Monday's meeting with the Suns. It will be a stern test for him with Phoenix boasting the fourth-best defense against shooting guards this season.
New York Knicks shooting guard RJ Barrett was the team's top scorer as they rolled to a seventh straight victory on Tuesday by beating Charlotte 109-97. The second-year player had 24 points on 8-for-17 shooting. All-Star Julius Randle took it easy this time with 16 points. Barrett had a couple of very quiet outings at the start of last week, but he's since then bounced back with two 24-point efforts in three games. Wednesday's matchup against Atlanta puts the 20-year-old again in a nice spot to perform. The Hawks haven't handled opposing shooting guards well all season and Barrett has averaged 23.5 points in two outings against them.
