The Grizzlies have selected West Virginia guard Jevon Carter with the 32nd pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.
Carter was on many people's draft boards as a very "Grit and Grind" selection for the Griz; he was an excellent defender in college and a relentless, high-motor player.
Seems like most of NBA Twitter agrees:
There simply couldn’t be a better fit of player to city than Jevon Carter and the Grizzlies. Ultimate grinder. May be my favorite player in the Draft. On-ball defensive beast.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) June 22, 2018
And here's one calling him "the best on-ball defender in the draft":

Seems like a fine choice for a second-rounder. It remains to be seen whether the Grizzlies will have room for Carter on the 2018-19 roster, but hey, that's what the Hustle are for—though I would expect Carter to challenge hard for a roster spot in training camp.
