Final grade: Barnes

Matt Barnes, backup forward:

Sometimes he seemed comfortable in the triangle offense and other times it seemed foreign to him. All things considered, it was a season of adjustment for a player who was playing for his fourth new team in as many seasons. The Lakers liked his aggressiveness defensively, but just when it seemed he was making an impact at both ends of the court, he tore cartilage in his right knee and missed 26 games after undergoing surgery. The way back was long and filled with missteps, but there’s hope for the future.

Stats: 53 games, 6.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists.

Grade: C.

Next: Steve Blake.
