Jevon Carter is a Fan Favorite in His New Home – Since arriving in the NBA in 2018, former West Virginia Mountaineers guard Jevon Carter has been bouncing around from team to team, and never really got a spot where he was properly used.
Carter was drafted by the Memphis Grizzlies with a total of 32 picks in the second round of the 2018 NBA Draft. After one season with the Grizzlies, Carter was traded to the Phoenix Suns, where he played two seasons. He was subsequently transferred to Brooklyn to play for the Nets this season and his playing time dwindled drastically in a truly talented Brooklyn team.
In nine games with the Bucks, Carter has mostly recorded a career-high 5.6 points while providing 1.8 assists per game, which is a career high. Moreover, Carter has fired a superb 14-24 from three-point range (58.3%) and has been an unexpected offensive spark off the bench for the Bucks.
While Carter has struggled in the past to make daily rotations, he has a legitimate role to play in Milwaukee. As a reserve point guard, Carter’s defensive intensity and continuous shooting have earned him the confidence and admiration of Bucks fans.
West Virginia fans are clear on what Jevon Carter can do, but right now the current new fan base appreciates the impulse and power he brings to the field. In less than a month with the team, he has become a lover’s favorite for the Bucks.
Carter, 26, has a real chance to not only win the NBA championship but also become a valuable key member of the championship team. The Bucks are currently 44-26 and two games behind the Miami Heat for first place in the Eastern Conference. As defending champions, the Bucks have once again been recognized as champions this season.
Jevon Carter has finally found a place to love and appreciate what he brings to a team, and it looks like he is on his way to a long and prosperous career in the NBA with one of the best teams in the world.
