In the 2018-19 season finale for the Memphis Grizzlies, the focus was not on the playoffs, but more so on what they have to build around in the future.
The Grizzlies knew this would be another year of their rebuild, but what they did not expect is the quick rise from 2nd round pick Jevon Carter.
Last night, Carter led Memphis to a 132-117 win over the Golden State Warriors. He had a career high 32 points on 10 of 18 shooting from the field and hitting 8 of 12 threes. Not to mention, he did all of this in just 26 minutes of playing time.
Carter has been a swinging pendulum going back and forth from the NBA and the Memphis Hustle, the Grizzlies G-League affiliate. Look for him to make a spot in the rotation next year and secure him a spot on Memphis’ squad as a back up guard.
He appeared in 39 games this year for the Grizzlies averaging 4.4 points per game in and average of 14.8 minutes per game.
