Barton finds role with team but his future is uncertain

Portland Trail Blazers guard Will Barton has cemented himself right in the thick of the rotation as Portland is two games away from concluding the regular season before heading into the playoffs.

Thoughts and player comparisons on Trail Blazers G/F Will Barton

I was probably not the only person surprised on Draft night when Will Barton wasn't selected in the first round, as he slid all the way to 40th pick, where he was selected by the Portland Trail Blazers.
