Phoenix Suns Land Harrison Barnes In Major Trade Scenario

Harrison Barnes, Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns, NBA Trade Rumors

In the modern NBA, 3-and-D wings are among the most coveted players in the league. If you possess those two core skills, you’ll always have a job in the league. 

To be sure, it’s a vital role. Floor spacing and defense are arguably the two most important elements of NBA basketball. On the other hand, it’s a limited one. A pure 3-and-D wing doesn’t create offense for himself or his teammates: he simply shoots and defends. 

With that said, not every 3-and-D wing is limited to that skill set. The 3-and-D wing plus can be an especially valuable player.

There is perhaps no better example than Harrison Barnes. He’s a good three-point shooter, and an adequate defender, but he can also create his own shot when necessary.
