Jimmy Baron

Baron holds every Rhode Island shooting record going. He is an absolute 100% pure, unsullied, virginal shooter, who unfortunately doesn't do a lot else. Baron's first and only professional season thus far saw him play for Mersin in Turkey, where he averaged 16.5 points in 28.6 minutes with 43.4% three point shooting....and nothing else. Such is the Jimmy Baron experience. Not a bad thing, but not an NBA thing.

- Jimmy Baron

Rhode Island product Baron took his one major skill - jumpshooting - and brought it to a Turkish audience. Baron is Mersin's designated American shooter this season, taking over from Chris Lofton. That's not an easy thing to do, because Lofton was awesome in that role last year, averaging 20.2 points per game and including both 47 and 61 point outings (shooting a combined 30-42 from three point range in those two games). However, Baron has been pretty damn good at it himself, averaging 18.8 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in the Turkish league. Baron is shooting 48% from three point range while taking ten and a half of them a game, and while he's had no massive Lofton-like explosions (with a season high of only 29), he has shot consistently well. He always does. He probably always will.
