As the NBA free agency period officially began on Thursday night, former WVU guard Jevon Carter signed a two-year deal to return to the Milwaukee Bucks. Carter’s signing was first reported by Stadium’s Shams Charania.
The financial details of the two-year deal have not been officially announced yet.
Carter played at West Virginia from 2014-18 and is preparing to begin his 5th season in the NBA. The Maywood, Illinois, native played for the Brooklyn Nets and the Bucks last season, appearing in 66 games. Carter was waived by the Nets and the Bucks signed him just days later in February. Just two seasons ago, Carter backed up Chris Paul on the Phoenix Suns as they made an appearance in the NBA Finals.
The 6-foot-1 guard has played 223 career NBA games, averaging 4.4 points, 1.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.6 steals per game.
Before his NBA career, Carter helped 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. Carter was named a Consensus All-American in 2018.
Carter will spend some time with WVU’s alumni team Best Virginia as he will serve as an assistant coach in the TBT Tournament.
