RJ Barrett has been playing well below expectations as of late. The fifth-year forward is averaging 38% from the field and 26% from three over his last 16 games.
There is coddling from the Knicks faithful towards Barrett, but that ship has sailed when it comes to being a potential contender for an NBA championship. With ongoing discussions about who the Knicks should trade, Barrett appears to be avoiding major talks. However, a change of scenery could benefit Barrett as the Knicks look to make moves to insert themselves into winning conversations.
