DENVER — Will Barton walked into the center of the scrum for his exit interview Thursday wearing flip flops with pink flowers printed on them. The Nuggets’ flashy swingman seemed to rock a different pair of shoes each time a camera was in front of him this year. Hours after going for 24 points in a do-or-die game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Barton spoke about the season that was and his future in Denver.
The 27-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent this summer. When Barton does hit the open market, he’ll have as many variables to weigh as the number of kicks that are in his closet.
