MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — Former West Virginia Mountaineers guard Jevon Carter has cashed in on an impressive season last year and signed an NBA free agent deal with the Chicago Bulls! The deal is a 3 year deal worth $20 million.
Carter is originally from Maywood, Illinois, which is about 30 minutes outside of Chicago so he is going home with this new deal.
Carter, 27, averaged 8.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists while shooting 42.1% from three point range with the Milwaukee Bucks last season.
Carter played for the Mountaineers from 2014-2018 and was drafted in the second round by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2018 NBA Draft. Since then, Carter has played for the Phoenix Suns, Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks.
