What Makes a Great 6th Man?

I saw a good thread talking about this and wanted to see what you guys thought.

What makes a player well suited for the 6th man role? Is Will Barton and his iso-one-on-one offense good for lower tier defenses, or is ball stopping a viable concern even in the second unit? Victor Claver's flexibility makes him a pinch solution in multiple positions (a la Lamar Odom), is that necessary for a 6th man?

Wasn't CJ McCollum drafted to pretty much be the prototypical 6th man? Combo-guard off the bench, capable of scoring in a variety of ways? I have to say, I always liked Jamal Crawford as a 6th man. Super dangerous, capable of just going off and being unstoppable against teams. Too darn inconsistent though, and didn't buy into the team concept very much. Wish we had had a competent PG that year so that McMillian wouldn't have demanded Crawford play the position he has consistently said he does not want to play.
