Scottie Barnes stands 6’9″, plays the power forward position, and dominated college ball at Florida State. He was so darn good that the Toronto Raptors decided to nab him with the 4th overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft (one of the weakest drafts in the last 20 years).
In his first year as a pro, Scottie averaged 15.3 points per game to go along with 7.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists. Those numbers were good enough to earn him the 2022 NBA Rookie of the Year award.
