Grizzlies Draft Jevon Carter in Second Round



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:

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.
