Why The Los Angeles Lakers Do The Deal 

People refer to him as Will “The Thrill” Barton. It’s a great nickname. With that said, “The Skilled” would also be appropriate. 

Barton may not be a household name, but this is a good basketball player. Barton gives you a little bit of everything on a basketball court. He can handle, shoot, pass and finish difficult layups.

Meanwhile, this team is apparently apprehensive to part with draft capital to improve. If that’s true, this could be the deal for them.
