Jevon Carter Quietly Having Outstanding Season

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — West Virginia fans know what Jevon Carter is capable of and also knew that he just needed a real opportunity to be successful in the NBA. Carter, 28, is back home in Chicago (he grew up just outside of Chicago) playing for the Bulls this season, and he has quietly put together a really nice start to the season.

Carter, who has bounced around from the Memphis Grizzlies, Phoenix Suns, Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks to the Chicago Bulls during his 7 year career in the NBA, seems to have finally found the right team for him to truly shine. Through 7 games, Carter is averaging 7.1 points and 1.9 assists per game, and of course he’s still one of the best on-the-ball defenders in the league.

Even more remarkable, Carter is currently shooting 52.6% from the field and 50% from three point range. If there has been a fair criticism of Carter during his professional career, it’s that he hasn’t been particularly consistent from the field, shooting approximately 40% over the last 6 seasons. However, it’s clear that Carter has found his niche offensively and is really become very efficient on both ends of the court now.

Carter is the leading three point shooter on the Bulls, is the best perimeter on the team and one of the best in the league, and he’s become a truly invaluable piece of the Bulls’ roster.
