Will Barton

(age 23)

The Trail Blazers' reserve shooting guard was born on this day in Baltimore, Md.

Barton, 6-6 and 175 pounds, came to the Blazers out of Memphis University in the 2012 NBA draft. Portland took him in the second round, with the 40th overall pick.

As a rookie, he appeared in 73 games, starting five. He averaged 12.2 minutes and 4.0 points per game, shooting 38.2 percent from the field and 13.8 percent on 3-pointers.

This season, he has been used even less often, with nine appearances and 2.4 points in 5.6 minutes per game.
