Ranking the 30 Starting Small Forwards in the NBA
Harrison Barnes had a breakout year in Dallas last year, but where does he fall in our rankings of all 30 starting small forwards in the NBA?
The Dallas Mavericks signed Harrison Barnes last summer to come in and be a cornerstone piece moving forward for the franchise. Coming in under a max contract, Barnes did better than many fans even imagined during his first year.
Now, in his second season in Dallas, Barnes looks to build off that first year and keep moving towards a potential All-Star in the league.
In this series, I previously ranked all 30 starting point guards where you can read where Dennis Smith Jr. falls in the rankings here. I also ranked all 30 starting shooting guards and placed Wesley Matthews higher than most. You can read those rankings here.
As a reminder, the rankings are done with only one season in mind and assuming each player is starting the season healthy.
On the August 7th episode of Locked On Mavericks, Nick Angstadt (Mavs Moneyball) and I debate each of our lists. You can listen to that episode here.
With that being said, here are my rankings of the 30 starting small forwards in the league.
