NBA career

Barry was selected by the Denver Nuggets in the first round (15th pick) of the 1995 NBA Draft.

Barry is also a strong three-point shooter; he currently ranks 13th all-time in career three-point field goals made and has shot 40% from behind the arc for his career. These two strengths, combined with Barry's 6 ft 7 in frame, allows him to play a variety of positions, including point guard, shooting guard, and small forward; because he is taller than most point guards, he is often considered a point forward when he is running the offense. He was on the San Antonio Spurs Championship Squads of 2005, and 2007. He won the Slam Dunk Contest in the NBA All-Star Weekend in 1996 with a Julius Erving-inspired slam dunk in which he took off from the free throw line to sail in and dunk one-handed.
