Former WVU Guard Jevon Carter Traded to the Brooklyn Nets



Former West Virginia star Jevon Carter is on the move once again, heading to Brooklyn this time.

The Phoenix Suns traded Jevon Carter and the 29th pick in tonight’s NBA Draft to the Brooklyn Nets for shooting guard Landry Shamet. Carter played well for the Suns in a reserve role this season, but he’s been packaged with a late first round pick for the sharpshooting Shamet.

While Carter played well for the Suns in limited minutes this season, averaging 4.1 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists on 42/37/57 shooting in 12 minutes per game, he saw the floor less and less as the Suns advanced to the NBA Finals this season.

On a loaded Nets team, featuring superstars Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving, Carter moves from an NBA finalist to a team with NBA Finals expectations.

Averaging 4.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists on 39/38/80 shooting in his three year NBA career with the Memphis Grizzlies and Suns, he’s carved out a role in limited minutes. Carter could wind up a defense-first guard with the Nets in this upcoming season.
