Michael Carter-Williams is one of the more intriguing prospect in this year’s draft class.
By way of Syracuse, Carter-Williams stands at 6-foot-6 and his size virtually speaks for himself at the point guard position. Carter-Williams has a height advantage over nearly every player he matches up against and can stuff the stat sheet because of it. Carter-Williams burst onto the scene during the 2012-13 season, helping the Orange advance all the way to the Final Four. He averaged 11.9 points, 7.3 assists and 4.9 rebounds per game this past year and his athleticism and general awareness is what could make him a very valuable point guard at the NBA level.
Carter-Williams can be turnover prone at times, averaging 3.4 per game this season. He may not be completely refined, but that’s because he only saw an increase in minutes just this past season. As a 6-foot-6 point guard however, Carter-Williams has a bright future and should surely hear his name called within the lottery portion of the 2013 NBA Draft.
