Jon's most memorable time as a player came in his two seasons playing for the Detroit Pistons. In 2001-02, Barry enjoyed a tremendous season off the bench, co-leading "The Alternatorz" with 6th Man of the Year winner, Corliss Williamson. Barry, Williamson, Zeljko Rebraca, and Damon Jones made up the foursome off the bench that Rick Carlisle went to almost exclusively at the beginnings of the 2nd and 4th quarters. Barry's biggest performance came in the deciding game 5 of the first round of the 2002 NBA Playoffs against the Toronto Raptors. With the Pistons in trouble early in the game, "JB" walked on to the floor and immediately turned the game around. Two long 3-pointers, some clutch jumpers, and some sweet feeds for layups helped the Pistons reclaim control and ultimately win the game. Barry had 12 first-half points and Piston fans will always remember that peformance. In a surprise move, stubborn coach Rick Carlisle slashed Barry's minutes severely in the 2nd round against the Boston Celtics. In a game 3 loss in Boston, 66-64, Barry would play only FOUR minutes, puzzling Piston fans who knew points were at a premium.


Barry left the Pistons after the 2002-03 season quietly and some would argue that the Pistons have been missing that firepower and energy off the bench ever since. Replacements such as Maurice Evans, Ronald Dupree, and Carlos Delfino have tried to bring the same things Barry did, but ultimately, they have fallen short.


Barry was released from the Rockets on 1 March 2006, which marked the end of his NBA playing career.
