Jordan Hamilton was chosen by the Dallas Maverickswith the 26th pick in the first round, and eventually ended up with the Denver Nuggets as part of a three-team deal.

Some were projecting Hamilton higher. When NBA writer Chris Tomasson asked Hamilton about it, the Longhorns standout said he felt Barnes had some influence. Tomasson tweeted Hamilton's response to him.

"(Barnes) called some teams and said that I probably wasn't coachable and things like that. But I feel I can be coachable"

He also told Tomasson that he "got some feedback" that led him to believe that information.
