5 right? Bradley, Durant, Thompson, Joseph and Turner? I just did a quick look though so I could have missed some. Curious what constitutes a lot by today's standards. (This is not me being snarky and questioning/contesting/disagreeing with your comment, FYI.) Just raising the question about if Barnes is considered one of those coaches that recruits "one and dones" despite in my opinion, not really having that track record.

Also curious how many players Barnes has recruited of Spring/Johnson ranking that didn't go that route. Would probably be a better indicator of what they're probable to do.
He's had at least twice that number of 5 stars. Barnes has always gone after the top talent and it's a big reason as to why he's won so many games.

I don’t think the staff thinks they are 1 and done. It’s possible, but I believe they expect them to be here a couple of years like JJJ. This was only through a brief, casual conversation with an assistant. They do want us to temper our expectations of them and not expect them to be like Admiral or Grant from their last year here. TIFWIW Also, they aren’t worried about the G-League contracts either since only 3-5 guys will actually get those calls and make significant amounts of money like that.
