DENVER -- Nuggets shooting guard Will Barton is part of the reason that the team thinks it's moving in the right direction.

The hope is that you and upcoming players like Barton and the leadership of head coach Mike Malone will get the Nuggets into the playoffs next year.

Barton joined Nick Griffith for our Sports Zone player profile Sunday.

Barton averaged 14.9 points and six rebounds per game for Denver this past season. Both are career highs and help earn him a nomination for the NBA's 6th Man of the Year award.

He didn't win it this year, but his performance was impressive.
