As Jevon Carter starts to become comfortable with his new NBA team, the Milwaukee Bucks gave the former WVU guard a lot of playing time on Monday night.

Carter appeared in his second game with the Bucks, after being waived by the Brooklyn Nets last week. The 6-foot-1 guard from Illinois played in 29 minutes against the Charlotte Hornets. Carter recorded 10 points, three rebounds and two assists off the bench.

Carter spent the first part of the 2021-22 season with the Nets after being traded on draft day back in July. The 6-foot-1 guard played 46 games with Brooklyn, averaging 3.6 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists. Carter has played with the Memphis Grizzlies (2018-19) and the Phoenix Suns (2019-21).

Carter played at West Virginia under head coach Bob Huggins from 2014-18, helping the Mountaineers reach 3-Sweet 16’s in 2015, 2017 and 2018. The all-time steals leader at WVU averaged 12.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 2.3 steals in 144 career games.
