4. Will Barton - SF/SG, Denver Nuggets

Another sharpshooting shooting guard, Will Barton is having a career year with increased opportunity in Denver this season. The 31-year-old is averaging career-highs in points (16.3), assists (4.2), and 3-point shooting (39.2%) in his 10th year in the league.

Barton brings buckets, and he does so on a high volume. His 6.7 attempts from three are well above the highest mark for a Spur (Derrick White with 5.4) and he would give them instant offense when they hit one of their patented cold spells.

While he's not as accurate from downtown as Bryn Forbes (few are), he could fill his role better by being an upgrade on the defensive end with his agility and 6-6 frame.

Barton would have to go back to playing limited minutes if he ended up in San Antonio. The fact that the Nuggets are decimated with injuries and he's one of the bright spots means he'll likely be a longshot option to be traded, but with Denver barely hovering near .500, it's not totally out of the realm of possibility they shop him.
